A former close friend of Conor McGregor is suing him for millions of euro, claiming he came up with the idea for the mixed martial arts star’s hugely successful Irish whiskey brand.

Retired Russian-born fighter Artem Lobov (36), a long-time training partner of McGregor (34), alleges he was instrumental in developing the brand that became Proper No. Twelve but ended up squeezed out as the spirit took off.
