Singer reveals his 'out of control' night out with Conor McGregor and it sounds wild
There's a reason that Conor McGregor is known as 'The Notorious'. Beyond his ferocity in the octagon, the mixed martial arts fighter is pretty outlandish the rest of the time too. He may not flash the cash quite as much as his former opponent Floyd 'Money' Mayweather, but he does have an interest in the extravagant.
The Irishman has a collection of cars that reportedly include a Lamborghini Huracan Avio, Rolls-Royce Phantom Drophead Coupe, BMW i8, a Rolls-Royce Ghost, a Lamborghini Aventador Roadster, a Cadillac Escalade, a Chevrolet Corvette Stingray and a BMW 730 Sport. He has a $750 pair of Jimmy Choo shoes and a $1000 pair of Crocodile Loafers. And it has been estimated that some of the watches in his collection could be priced between $500,000 and $1 million.
He tends to put on a bit of a show for his fans, too. Before the chaos of UFC 229 even started, McGregor was downing whiskey and performing for the crowd at his first press conference with Khabib Nurmagomedov. That competition may not have ended up too well for him, but it was good for business.
Outside of the public eye, it seems that he hasn't slowed down much either. Australian singer Conrad Sewell, perhaps best known for his vocals on the Kygo song Firestone, as well as his number-one single Start Again, says he met up with McGregor in Dublin earlier this year, after he played a gig in Dublin.
After the show was done, he met with McGregor - who went on to give him a tour of the Irish city, a night out that eventually "got out of control". Speaking to Kyle and Jackie O on KIIS 1065 this week, Conrad explained how their night out quickly went off the rails:
"Me and Conor went on a little bender at the beginning of the year.
"We were in Dublin, Ireland, and he came to a show, and that was before I got on the straight and narrow, and he actually got me off the straight and narrow. I was like a month sober or something like that."
"He’s an absolute legend. S**t got out of control. I had a show the next night and no one could find me."
While he seems to view the entire night in a positive light, the following day wasn't a good experience for the singer.
"We had to fly to London the next night and we were playing the O2 Arena, and I was still at his apartment, f*cked up," he said. "It was rough, I was pretty much almost sick at the airport, and the rest of the team didn't know, and I'm trying to cover it up."
His manager eventually had to calm him down, making sure he took some deep breaths to help him through what must have been the mother of all hangovers. "It was dark times with McGregor, but it was f***ing good!" he added.
In the months since, Conrad has straightened himself out and given up alcohol - and he doesn't seem to have any regrets. "I'm in a very good place at the moment," he said. "I'm very happy."
