It’s been a whirlwind year for Irish UFC champion Conor McGregor and the star finished 2015 on a high as he partied with close friends and his girlfriend Dee Devlin in Dublin last night.

Ahead of the countdown, McGregor shared a photograph in which he posed with his girlfriend Dee on a bus, the pair dressed to the nines for the celebrations.
The champion also shared a photograph in which he posed with his large group of friends as the clock struck twelve.
“What a f***ing year,” he wrote.
Meanwhile, the UFC champion has been spending Christmas living it up in a luxury mansion located on the grounds of the K Club in Co. Kildare.

McGregor has been celebrating his return to Ireland by splashing thousands on luxury gifts for his loved ones, including a Rolex watch worth €40k which he gifted to his girlfriend on Christmas Day.
The UFC champion may have been celebrating the arrival of 2016 last night, but he was also toasting to his hard work throughout the past four years, which have lead him to the top.
McGregor was reminiscing on a New Year’s Eve fight three years ago which set him on the path of success.
"Three years ago today I made history by becoming a two-weight World Champion. I've been making history ever since,” he said.
