Despite suffering a brutal broken leg in his bout against Dustin Poirier at UFC 264 last month, Conor McGregor has refused to let his injury get the better of him.
Last weekend, the UFC superstar was seen out at Los Angeles restaurant Catch L.A to celebrate the birthday of his long-time partner Dee Devlin.
The pair were entered the West Hollywood restaurant in expensive designer outfits and while Devlin brought a luxury Chanel bag with her, McGregor carried a pair of crutches and sported a large protective boot on his left leg.
They then enjoyed cocktails and cake inside the restaurant before having a driver drop them back to the Beverly Hills Hotel where McGregor has been staying the past few weeks.
On the drive back, the pair danced to Mariah Carey and Jay-Z's song Heartbreaker in the back seats.
McGregor has become somewhat of a regular diner at Catch L.A recently, and nearly bumped into fierce rival Khabib Nurmagomedov at the restaurant just a few weeks ago.
Reportedly, both men were spotted at the restaurant and narrowly missed each other by just a few minutes.
Do you think Conor McGregor will fight in the UFC again? Let us know in the comments section below.
Nurmagomedov was seen out with managers Rizvan Magomedov and Ali Abdelaziz, and with Abdelaziz’s reputation as somewhat of a hothead, diners will be delighted the UFC stars avoided one another.
Abdelaziz has regularly gone after McGregor on social media himself and attempted to fight other UFC stars in the past, most notably Colby Covington.
Following McGregor’s recent comments about the death of Nurmagomedov’s late father, Abdulmanap, mayhem could well have ensued in the luxury restaurant if the fighters came face-to-face.
The latest chapter in the McGregor-Nurmagomedov rivalry came after the Irishman’s devastating loss to Poirier at UFC 264.
Following the Diamond’s stunning victory, Nurmagomedov took to Twitter and told his fans: “Good always defeats evil.”
“Very happy for Dustin Poirier. I hope you will get the belt end of year.”
Nurmagomedov’s comments clearly riled McGregor up and during one of the Irishman’s notorious Twitter barrages, the former two-weight UFC champion responded to the Eagle.
McGregor said: “Covid is good and father is evil?”.
McGregor has been widely condemned for his shocking comments and while it is unclear whether the UFC plans on punishing him, the tweet has since been deleted.
