Conor McGregor has been billed as the highest-paid athlete of all sports in 2021 – and he doesn’t mind flaunting that wealth.
The latest example comes from the Irish superstar’s new $ 3.6 million yacht which just arrived after being one of only 63 people lucky enough to score on one of Lamborghini’s luxury water rides.
The Lamborghini Tecnomar – dubbed the “supercar of the sea” – is a 4,000 horsepower yacht powered by a pair of V12 engines weighing 24 tons and measuring 63 feet in length. The yacht can reach speeds of up to 60 knots or almost 70 miles per hour.
Of course, the purchase price of $ 3.6 million does not include any upgrades, which McGregor surely added to his new boat after purchasing the limited edition yacht. The new yacht was also painted in a shade of green similar to the bottles used for McGregor’s Proper No. 12 whiskey, which is a big part of how it reached the top of Forbes’ list of highest paid athletes in 2021.
A day before McGregor received his new yacht, he dropped a not-so-subtle post on his Instagram for anyone criticizing him following his second straight loss to Dustin Poirier after breaking his leg at the end of the first. turn of their fighting trilogy.
“I wipe my rich ass with your feelings about my job,” McGregor wrote. “I don’t feel anything for you bums. “
McGregor is currently recovering from surgery lasting more than three hours to place a rod in his leg to stabilize the bones after breaking both his tibula and fibia in the fight with Poirier.
The former two-division UFC champion has previously said he expects to be on crutches for about six weeks, but it will likely be a year or more before he can compete again.
