After a successful year in the octagon, Conor McGregor has been able to use some of his earnings to buy himself a new house in Ireland. 

The Dubliner will be headed out to Kildare when coming home for Christmas this year after The Sunday World revealed that he purchased a house worth €2 million. 

A spread in the paper details that the Ladycastle estate on the grounds of the K Club will be the place he calls home from here on out, while he already has a number of high end cars parked outside the house, including a BMW i8, a Cadillac Escalade and a Range Rover. 

Speaking to Independent.ie Rob Pearson of PSG Sponsorship detailed that the fighter's earnings could be set to rise again in 2016, from the €11 million he earned this year: "The moment he landed the left hook that sent Aldo crashing to the mat, McGregor's net worth skyrocketed and he can expect to earn in the region of €15m in 2016, a 35pc increase on his total earnings last year". 

He added that if McGregor were to fight three times in 2016, he could see that figure rise to €20 million.

Of course, McGregor is used to living in a mansion these days, having spent his time in Las Vegas training and living in the "McMansion".
