Former two division champion Conor McGregor who has an opportunity to recapture the lightweight title when he clashes against 155-pound champion Khabib Nurmagomedov in the main headliner of UFC 229 on October 6th from Las Vegas, but that certainly didn’t stop him from taking care of his other business.
On Monday, UFC star Mcgregor launched his new Irish whiskey called ‘proper No. twelve’ which is produced by his own company. He’s been teasing this since he boxed with Floyd Mayweather back in August of 2017. Irish MMA star also said that a part of the sales from each bottle would be donated to the local first responders.
Check out his social media post what he had to say about his new whiskey:
“I come from a place called Crumlin, in Dublin 12. It’s a place dear to my heart,” McGregor wrote in today’s press release. “It’s where I learned how to fight; it made me who I am today. It’s a place I’m still very much a part of every single day of my life. So, that’s where the name came from. It’s proper Irish whiskey and twelve is my hometown.”
“Growing up on the streets of Dublin 12, I learned the values of loyalty and hard work,” McGregor continued. “I respect other Irish whiskeys, but I am coming in strong, with passion and with purpose. I am the founder of this company and I am going to give it my all.”
Mcgregor’s whiskey brand will be released in Ireland and the U.S. later this month.
