UFC star Conor McGregor has long been known for his extravagant lifestyle outside of the ring, and he continued the trend by showing off a new £23,000 watch.
The Irishman, who is gearing up for his long-awaited UFC return in October, posted images of the platinum Rolex watch on his Instagram story as he enjoyed a late night drive.
Featuring an ice blue dial markers fashioned from 18 carat gold, McGregor’s Rolex Day Date 36 is described by the manufacturer as ‘the watch par excellence of influential people’.
McGregor could be seen sporting the watch on his left wrist as he put his feet up during the journey.
He is set to make a much-anticipated return to the Octagon against Khabib Nurmagomedov in Las Vegas in October.
Nurmagomedov, a Russian of Avar descent, is the current UFC Lightweight Champion.
The UFC announced earlier this month that McGregor and Nurmagomedov will headline UFC 229 on October 6 at T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas.
The fight is tipped to be the biggest in the history of the sport due to the intense personal rivalry and the fascinating stylistic match-up.
McGregor hasn’t fought within UFC since November 12, 2016 against Eddie Alvarez, and he will no doubt be desperate to light up the sport once again.
