Conor McGregor boasts about wealth while smoking in Rolls Royce

The Mirror 13 October, 2021 - 12:12pm

UFC legend Conor McGregor has boasted how he is richer than the whole UFC roster while smoking in a Rolls Royce.

The combat athlete, whose value stands at £147million according to Celebrity Net Worth, was seen bragging about his wealth while he continues his recovery from a broken leg injury.

McGregor posted on Instagram: "I’m richer than the whole roster b****, I’m Rick Ross. Rolling around Miami, UFC's richest ever in history. Just wow.

"Pinch me I’m powerful. Rolls Royce Miami. The key to the city to start. Proper Mondays grinding."

The Irishman has not only been successful in the Octagon, but also has successful business ventures.

In September 2018, McGregor launched Proper No. Twelve Irish whiskey in Ireland and the United States. The whiskey is named after the Crumlin neighbourhood in Dublin 12, where he grew up.

The company expanded to UK, Australia, New Zealand, Russia and Canada in 2019, and McGregor also has a fashion partnership with tailoring brand David August; the brand is named "August McGregor" and is aimed at providing modern men's suits to millennials.

In 2021, it was reported that McGregor and his business partners sold their majority stake in his whiskey brand to Proximo Spirits, who previously had a 49% stake, for a deal worth a reported $600 million.

McGregor has also previously had endorsement deals with Beats by Dre, Monster Energy, Reebok and Bud Light. As of 2017, his endorsement deals rounded up to $7 million. In early 2018, McGregor signed a deal with Burger King.

Meanwhile, the 33-year-old has been enjoying himself on a tour of America with his family recently, and it has been a rather eventful experience.

The Notorious One’s throw was full of power but completely devoid of any sort of accuracy.

The catcher looked shocked as he watched the ball sail a long way high and wide of its target, before hitting the wall separating the stands from the field of play.

He was then honoured by receiving the keys to Miami, posting images from the ceremony on social media.

McGregor received a lavish ceremony in which he had the honour bestowed upon him by the city’s mayor Francis Suarez.

He beamed with pride while holding the gong alongside Suarez.

The former champion wrote on Instagram: “The Mac with The Key to The City of Miami!"

“Thank you Mayor Suarez for bestowing this great honour upon me and with my family present to witness.

“A very proud moment for me in my life. Thank you! Your hospitality and care for my family and team will be forever remembered.”

Former 49ers star Joe Staley shares his thoughts on Trey Lance’s first NFL start

Daily Mail 13 October, 2021 - 11:30am

In his final three seasons, Staley played in San Francisco from 2007-2019, playing under current head coach Kyle Shanahan. A good friend of Shanahan's, Staley is well-versed in the head coach's tendencies and the offensive system.

Staley said he was "very excited" to watch Lance finally get his chance under center and compared him to veteran starting quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo.

“I think when you look at the quarterback situation, you know what you’re going to get out of Jimmy. He has the understanding of the offense, and I think he does probably give this team the best opportunity to consistently win games throughout the whole entire year because of the understanding of where to go with the football.

Given his close relationship with Shanahan, it's worth noting that Staley's insistence that Garoppolo gives the 49ers a better chance to win aligns with what team brass has signaled all year. Staley went as far as to say, "I think he [Shanahan] made his decision before the season even started... If Jimmy's healthy, he's going to be our quarterback this year. They want to use it as a red-shirt year."

With that said, Staley came away from Sunday's performance optimistic about the 49ers' future under Lance. Despite his insistence that Garoppolo gave the team a better chance to win right now, he acknowledged that Lance provides the offense with a far higher ceiling.

“But the offense isn’t nearly, I don’t feel, as exciting [with Garoppolo], and the potential isn’t there for different layers to be added, as what Trey brings to the team.”

The unknown brings plenty of excitement. Lance's athleticism allows him to run escape pressure and his arm strength adds an added layer to the 49ers' offense that we haven't seen.

The question is about consistency. That's why we could see Garoppolo remain as the starter. Jimmy knows the offense. It's evident Shanahan has more confidence in him by his words and actions.

We started to see more dropback passing from Lance once the 49ers were forced to throw the ball in the fourth quarter. During the first three quarters, the offense looked far different from what we're used to seeing. They were over-reliant on Lance's legs.

If Garoppolo gives the team the best opportunity to win consistently, then Shanahan doesn’t have a difficult decision to make.
