Conor McGregor

Conor McGregor says he drank heavily ahead of his October 2018 defeat to Khabib Nurmagomedov, but that he’s since gone sober ahead of his return to the Octagon this weekend.
The Irishman was comprehensively beaten by Nurmagomedov at UFC 229, losing via fourth round submission, and has not competed since.
“Good couple of months ago, three or four months ago maybe,” he told ESPN when asked how long it had been since he’d drank. “I was drinking all the way through fight week last time (for Nurmagomedov).”
He also said he’d often celebrate sparring victories during the build-up to the fight by going out for “three days” at a time.
“I’m not going back there,” he said. “I’m in a better place.”
