I'm taking over the Irish whisky market! McGregor remains in high spirits

Conor McGregor came up short against Floyd Mayweather, but graciously embraced his rival before vowing to take over the Irish whisky market!

The UFC star went toe-to-toe with the boxing veteran on his first professional outing in the squared circle before Mayweather's experience and ring craft shone through to earn a 10th-round stoppage.

With all the talking done and the scores settled, the two men shared a hug as McGregor took to the stage for his post-fight news conference.

Dolled up in a typically lavish, outlandish suit, McGregor also brought along his own brand of whisky and is seemingly keen for a share of that particular pie as well.

"I'm going to take over the Irish whisky market," he gleefully exclaimed. 

"This is delicious, so keep your eyes out."
