This is everything UFC champion Conor McGregor eats and drinks for breakfast, lunch, and dinner

This is Conor McGregor, the former two-weight UFC champion renowned for his pre-fight trash talk, his highlight-reel striking, and his flashy lifestyle. After two years away from mixed martial arts, McGregor looks set to return to the sport and will reportedly challenge Russian wrestler Khabib Nurmagomedov for the UFC lightweight world title at UFC 229.
A typical breakfast for McGregor involves eggs, and his coffee of choice is an Americano, which is a shot of espresso diluted with hot water. "I eat eggs — an omelet with my Americano for a late breakfast or brunch," he reportedly told AskMen in 2016.
Rehydrating is just as important as fuelling and McGregor will drink protein shakes, plenty of water, and even coconut water. "Getting enough protein is important when I train, to help build muscle and recover, so I’ll supplement with protein shakes," he reportedly said.
McGregor doesn't tend to load-up on carbs, but when he does, he makes one exception. "I don’t eat a lot of carbs — if I do it’s something like sweet potatoes."
And, after a long day, what's left to do apart from blaze a fat cigar and puff away like an absolute champion? Nothing, that's what.
