Conor McGregor was asked if he'd rather share a glass of whiskey with Khabib Nurmagomedov or Floyd Mayweather, and his response was cutting
- Conor McGregor only likes to share a whiskey with friends, family, and fans.
- So that means he'd be loath to enjoy a drink with his two nemeses Khabib Nurmagomedov and Floyd Mayweather.
- McGregor has suffered back-to-back defeats since being beaten by Mayweather in a boxing rules bout in 2017, and Nurmagomedov at UFC 229 in October.
- But McGregor's whiskey brand Proper No. Twelve seems to be a winner, as the Irish fighter has issued a rare apology…
- … and this is because the bottle has sold out so fast they've had to ramp up production to restock shelves in December.
Conor McGregor would not enjoy sharing a whiskey with his nemeses Khabib Nurmagomedov and Floyd Mayweather.The Irishman, a concussive striker with market-leading mixed martial arts (MMA) firm the UFC, lost two of his most recent bouts.

In an interview with Entrepreneur, McGregor was asked whether he'd like to share a drink with his most recent opponents. His answer was simple - he said "neither."He then explained why: "I drink Proper No. Twelve with those close to me. My friends and family and those I grew up with, that is whom I like to sit and have a glass of Proper whiskey with. I also love to enjoy it with customers and consumers in bars. That has been even more fun than I expected."The whiskey has proved popular with fans. Page Six reports it ran out so quickly that Proper No. Twelve has had to step-up production to get "a couple million" bottles distributed to the United States.
McGregor is famous for his razor-sharp wit and his headline-grabbing antics. After his 2016 knockout victory over the former champion Eddie Alvarez, McGregor grabbed the mic and said: "I've ridiculed everyone on the roster. I just want to say from the bottom of my heart, I'd just like to take the time to apologize… to absolutely nobody! The double-champ does what the f--- he wants!"
Well, now that he ran out of whiskey, McGregor has done something he rarely ever does - and that is saying sorry."I don't usually see reason to apologize," he said, according to PageSix. "We are producing well over 300,000 crates" to restock shelves in December.
