The 26-year-old, who quit her job to support her other half on the road as part of his official team, has been by his side since the beginning.

After McGregor's incredible victory over Chad Mendes in Las Vegas on Saturday night, she spoke of her pride at her other half's accomplishment in a touching post on Instagram.

"To say that I am proud is a MAJOR understatement," she wrote. "I am so on cloud 9 right now I can't even put it into words! Thank you to every single person who made the trip out to Vegas to support Conor last night! The place was absolutely buzzin!

"And to all of the fans at home who also had a big part to play in making this event so special. Hours upon hours, years upon years of hard work and complete dedication to his craft accumulated last night.

"I am so grateful right now it's overwhelming. We did it babe!! I love you more than anything Xxxxxx @thenotoriousmma."

Soon after, she shared a photo of them putting his winnings to good use - by purchasing matching 'His n' Hers' Audemars Piguet diamond encrusted Royal Oak watches, costing between €30,000 to €50,000 each.
