Conor McGregor is going into the whiskey business but first up is the "counting phase".

With over €100million expected to hit his bank account following his 10-round bout with Floyd Mayweather, the Notorious wants to make sure every cent is accounted for.

Then he will fly to Ibiza and rent a 100ft yacht for his friend’s wedding.

But McGregor can see more dollar bills and as he sipped from a bottle of 'Notorious Irish Whiskey', the Dubliner revealed he is opening a new business as he sets sights on the "Irish market".

"Oh, that whiskey takes so good," said McGregor in his post-fight press conference.

"Oh, f**k. Notorious Irish whiskey coming soon. I’m going to take over the Irish whiskey market, and this is delicious."

As for his immediate plans?

"I'm young, I'm fresh and I'm ready. I was just tired in there. I wasn't dazed or rattled.

"I'm going to hit Ibiza for a childhood friend's wedding and going to hire a 100ft yacht.

"Those are my plans and then we'll see what's next.

"This was some buzz, to come in and face this man. There were so many doubters, people said it wouldn't happen and then they said I wouldn't lay a glove on him.

"I have many options in mixed martial arts and I'm sure opportunities will present themselves in boxing."
