Everything about Conor McGregor screams superstar. Be it the MMA legend's tattoos, his fashion sense, his career accolades, or even his Vince McMahon walk. 'The Notorious' made his UFC debut in 2013 and quickly made his way to superstardom. However, according to his recruit Dana White, the Irishman was a star even before stepping inside the UFC octagon.

The UFC boss said after meeting Conor McGregor for the first time:

"He (Conor McGregor) flew out here to Las Vegas and he and I went to dinner. It was my first real interaction with him. I knew it that night with him. His personality, the energy around this kid, I’d never met anybody like him."

Conor McGregor is the most prominent MMA legend, considering how much he has helped the sport grow. So naturally, he has earned a lot of money in the process.

On that note, let's look at the five coolest things that Conor McGregor has bought:


#5 - Luxury villa in Spain

Conor McGregor bought a luxury villa in Marbella, Spain, called The Heights in 2018. The Irishman fell for the resort, which is on the doorstep of the La Resina Golf Course and overlooks the Mediterranean sea.

As is the signature of many of Conor McGregor's coolest buys, the luxury villa is expensive. The house is worth $1.8 million, and rightly so. According to the Irish Sun, the dream villa is part of an exclusive $20m development, which can only be afforded by the super-rich.

The property, bought by Conor McGregor, is part of an area known as the 'Superstars Cul de Sac.' The Irishman has neighbors, including Denmark goalkeeper Thomas Sorensen and former Spurs defender Stephen Carr.

McGregor's villa has luxury features such as a billiard room, the latest smart home technology, a wine cellar, and pool access from the rooms. The villa is located in the heart of the Golden Triangle of Marbella, between the white-washed town of Estepona and the luxurious port of Puerto Banús.

#4 - 300-foot superyacht

Conor McGregor was spotted onboard a 300-foot superyacht called Moonlight II in Dubai in 2021. It is reported that the Irishman has spent a whopping $12 million on the gigantic vessel, which has a 24/7 working crew, a captain, and even a few fishermen.

McGregor has posted photos of himself onboard Moonlight II quite a few times, including when he was in Ibiza in 2017. 'The Notorious' had spotted an even larger superyacht called the Super Sailing A, which inspired the UFC star to keep piling on that moolah.

While many in MMA circles, like Joe Rogan and Dustin Poirier, believe that Conor McGregor owns the 300-foot superyacht, he might have just rented it. Moonlight II is believed to be a charter yacht, which was built in Greece, and owned by Andreas Liveras. It is currently believed to be owned by someone in the Middle East who has kept the yacht active on the charter market.

Nonetheless, Conor McGregor has reportedly spent $12 million to buy the luxury of cruising through the seas while fishing with his family. It is most certainly one of the coolest things to have spent money on by the Irish UFC star.

A couple of weeks before Khabib Nurmagomedov retired from the UFC, Conor McGregor splashed $3.4m on a Lamborghini Sport Yacht. He posted several pictures on Instagram and described why the new hybrid yacht was one of his coolest buys ever. The former UFC 'champ-champ said:

"Lamborghini's first entry into the Sport Yacht World comes in the form of this 63 foot, 4000 bhp, duel engine, twin turbo, rocket ship. Titled the 'Supercar of the Sea', I am honoured to secure the Number 12 edition of just 63 to be made. 1963 being the year Lamborghini first began, and 12 being, well you know Twelve! Proper Fucking Twelve baby!"

The yacht engineered by Lamborghini is a limited edition as only 63 pieces are going to be made, starting from 2021. Conor McGregor has bought the No. 12 edition, dedicating it to his Irish whiskey brand, Proper Number 12.

Named Tecnomar 63, the sport yacht has a top speed of over 70 miles per hour and is capable of producing 4,000 horsepower.

Conor McGregor punched an older man in a pub in his hometown of Crumlin, Ireland, in 2019. A year or so later, the UFC star purchased the establishment for a reported $2.5 million. Earlier named the Marble Arch, the pub is now called the Black Forge.

The Black Forge Inn will go functional in July 2021, around the time Conor McGregor takes on Dustin Poirier at UFC 264 for their trilogy. It will also coincide with the Irishman's birthday.

Conor McGregor posted the news on social media in June 2021 and called his latest purchase the "finest public house" in Ireland. 'The Notorious' wrote:

"Introducing Dublin, Ireland’s finest public house, The Black Forge Inn 🇮🇪 @theblackforgeinn #OpenThisJuly"

Conor McGregor says he is enjoying the process of buying and personalizing his own pub. He claims it has inspired him to embrace his career as a publican. In a statement released by the Sunday Business Post, he said:

"With the enjoyment I have had, and am having throughout this whole process, I definitely feel this is only the beginning for me as a publican. I am passionate about hospitality and entertaining, and with the Black Forge I am only beginning."

Suiting his brash and often obscene character, Conor McGregor spent more than $2.5 million on an X-rated wristwatch. McGregor's latest timepiece collection could be best defined as a bit 'notorious.' The outrageously expensive diamond-encrusted wristwatch, called the Rasputin, is made by Jacobs & Co. And apart from the diamonds studded on the dial, there's another interesting feature to it.

With the touch of a button, a hidden NSFW animation emerges from behind a mini-door of jewels. Jacob & Co. revealed that Conor McGregor spent a whopping $2.65 million to buy the explicit watch.

While absolutely expensive and amazingly cool, it's not the only wristwatch that Conor McGregor has bought. The Irishman took to social media to show off two new watches, a brand new Bentley and a tailored suit. He wrote:

"New watch new suit new whip alert."

Along with his NSFW watch, Conor McGregor also bought Jacob & Co’s 'Astronomia Tourbillon Baguette,' costing the UFC star nearly $1.3 million.
