Former Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) lightweight champion, Conor McGregor, understands that giving is the reason for the season, so he sent UFC light heavyweight champion, Jon Jones, some of his record-breaking Proper No. 12.
You can’t make billions by giving away your inventory, but hey, what do I know?
On the surface it seemed like a nice thing to do for the holidays, or to help Jones celebrate his victory over Alexander Gustafsson in the UFC 232 pay-per-view (PPV) main event (watch it). But upon closer inspection, this might be some kind of “Notorious” troll job.
Ran into @jonnybones in the hotel lobby and he said @TheNotoriousMMA sent him and his team a bunch of Proper 12 whiskey!— Kevin Iole (@KevinI) December 30, 2018
Jones has already been tagged for DUI during his combat sports career. He also tested positive for cocaine and spent some time in rehab. So maybe “Bones” wasn't the best person to be receiving a bottle of Irish whiskey.
Helpfully pointed out by a fan.

Jones is expected to settle his affairs with Nevada State Athletic Commission (NSAC) at some point this month, then move on to fight Anthony Smith in his first 205-pound title defense after reclaiming his strap.
I’ll drink to that.
