The crazy stories coming out of Conor McGregor's week long Liverpool bender just keep getting better and better. First he appeared at the Grand National horse races at Aintree dressed like a pimp, and then he started popping up at house parties in various suburbs where he partied alongside the locals and ended up in a treehouse looking paler than he does trying to weigh in at 145 pounds.
Now we're getting word that UFC’s Lightweight champion and his friends thrashed the Aintree hotel room they were staying in, causing "thousands of pounds worth of damage," according to The Sun newspaper. Pictures obtained by the outlet show the rented room in a state of complete disrepair with empty beer and liquor bottles strewn around. A large number of nitrous oxide canisters also litter the room.
Conor McGregor's hotel suite is trashed and strewn with nitrous oxide canisters https://t.co/nSiDVb5XEB— Ryan Harkness (@Ryan_Harkness) April 17, 2017
A source said: “There were canisters all over the floor, smashed glass and food lying about.
“They damaged sofas and left cig butts and his Irish flag.”
The source said: “He got people in there to clean because of the level of damage. It’s just been carnage. Just full-on partying.”
So either Conor McGregor was making a lot of pastries or someone in his room / entourage really likes getting into the giggle juice. If McGregor decided to get crazy that way (and let’s make it clear: there’s no direct evidence the UFC fighter participated in any drug shenanigans), we hope he and his team were mindful of USADA's extensive list of out-of-competition banned substances. Because it’s all in good fun until you pull a Jon Jones.
