Fans all say the same thing as UFC legend Conor McGregor swigs Proper 12 whiskey from ringside at bare-knuckle fights | The Sun
CONOR McGREGOR swigged his Proper 12 whiskey from the bottle as he made a shock appearance at a bare-knuckle boxing event.
The Irishman took a ringside seat in Denver to watch former opponents Chad Mendes and Eddie Alvarez put on a brutal show.
Alvarez, 39, beat Mendes, 37, on points before Mike Perry stopped ex-UFC champion Luke Rockhold in two rounds of the main event.
And McGregor, 34, looked to be enjoying himself as he was captured sipping his limited edition Irish Apple whiskey.
But it left some fans fearing the worst with the MMA legend, who is set to make his UFC return later this year against Michael Chandler, 36.
One said: "There is no way this dude is fighting Chandler."

McGregor was later called out for a face-off with Perry, 31, and opened the door to a bare-knuckle boxing switch.

Perry said in his post-fight press conference: "What's next for me? Conor McGregor.
