Conor McGregor just held a press conference for his upcoming UFC 229 fight against Khabib Nurmagomedov on October 6, but it’s now confirmed that we’ll be seeing much more of The Notorious in the Octagon — McGregor has just signed a new 6-fight deal (previously an 8-fight deal) with the UFC.

According to ESPN, the new deal will feature McGregor’s new whiskey brand, Proper No. Twelve, as a sponsor in every UFC event that McGregor competes in.
