Dee's €40,000 Rolex watch

Celebrating his first Christmas as a world champ clearly suits Conor McGregor as he partied with friends following a lavish festive season.

The Notorious and his pals were spotted in nightclub Krystle on St Stephen's night celebrating the end of a whirlwind year for the MMA star.

Fellow fighters Lee Dunphy and Artem Lobov joined the Crumlin man for his Christmas night out.

McGregor, who is famed for his generous gift giving, presented his long-time partner Dee Devlin with a Rolex worth an estimated €40,000 on Christmas Day.

Dee, who gave up her job to support her other half's bid for UFC domination, shared a video of the sparkling watch online on the day.

It is not the first time that the Dubliner has splashed out on expensive gifts for his loved-ones.

His dad Tony previously revealed that he paid off his parents' mortgage and bought each member of his family a brand new BMW.

Following his Las Vegas win over Brazilian Jose Aldo, McGregor revealed his delight at having Christmas off to spend downtime with his friends and family.

"I've put in a hell of a lot of work this year, it's been a crazy, crazy year for me so I'm looking forward to going home, building a Christmas tree with my girlfriend, spending time with my family, eating some good, good food and let the plan form," he said.

True to his word he has been catching up with his pals, but showing his trademark dedication, he has also trained at SBG gym where he first began his MMA career.
