McGregor set to marry long-time girlfriend after Mayweather fight

Cage fighter Conor McGregor is predicted to swap rings again after his £500million boxing match against Floyd Mayweather .

This time pals are forecasting the 28-year-old bruiser will go down on one knee and pop the question to girlfriend Dee Devlin.

One friend told the Mirror: “Word is 2018 is when he’ll take the plunge.”

The couple, who have a baby boy Conor Jr after dating for eight years, could walk down the aisle as soon as next summer in Dublin.

The UFC champ, known as The Notorious, is the second richest sportsman in Ireland after golfer Rory McIlroy.

But Mayweather, 40, has never lost in the ring and showed his class with a dominant display in the early hours of Sunday.

McGregor’s pal, who travelled to Sin City for the fight, told us that Conor will be celebrating despite the result.

He added: “The last few years have been all about his career and becoming a family.

“The Mayweather fight has taken up much of his time this year, but he’s taking a break after it.

“It’ll be the biggest wedding Dublin has seen.
“Conor doesn’t do things by halves. All he has to do now is pop the question.”

McGregor and Dee met in a Dublin nightclub in 2009 and he credits her with driving his ambition to succeed.

He once said: “She stuck by me when I had essentially nothing.”

The pay-per-view fight is officially the most lucrative boxing clash in history.
