It's been quite a week for Conor McGregor.

The Irish UFC star was crowned interim featherweight champion after defeating Chad Mendes on Saturday night and now he's celebrating his 27th birthday.

His girlfriend of five years, Dee Devlin, wishes her other half a happy birthday on Instagram, sharing a sweet photo of them kissing in the pool in Las Vegas.

"Biggest happy birthday to the most amazing person on the planet! I am so proud of you babe you are my everything xxx," she captioned the photo.
