CONOR MCGREGOR wished his followers a ‘Happy thirsty Thursday’ just hours after his Dublin pub had been petrol bombed – sharing a bizarre video of himself flexing in a bathroom.
But the attack hasn’t dampened the MMA mogul’s spirit, which he showed was high as ever in an Instagram post that included him shouting and flexing in an expensive-looking shirt.
His caption read: “Happy thirsty Thursday everyone out there enjoy yourselves because life is a bitch and then you die.
“You never know when you gonna go. Rip all our soaring souls, they are still right here among us! Spirits remain!”
McGregor’s post showed him enjoying what appeared to be a fancy night out in his hometown.
It included a combination of videos of food, a glass of his Proper No.12 whiskey and selfies of himself enjoying a cigarette and of him showing off one of his many fancy watches.
