Sporting a black eye, the Notorious partied until the early hours in Intrigue nightclub with his long-term girlfriend Dee Devlin.
Taking to the stage, the fighter proudly carried an Irish flag and took a celebration selfie with his fans.
Last night’s fight was littered with celebrity spectators including Mike Tyson and Gordon Ramsay.
Rapper Kanye West was also in the crowd to witness McGregor’s win, posing for a photograph with his father Tony McGregor backstage.
The image was shared by McGregor's sister Erin. “Go Tony,” she wrote, sharing the image on Instagram.
One Direction star Horan praised his pal on his historic win, taking to Instagram to express his pride.
“Never seen anything like that. It was an absolute honour to be there tonight to watch two absolute warriors go toe to toe in battle. So much respect for both of them. Congratulations Conor you've made our small country proud again and Nate what a fighter and gladiator,” he wrote.
