Conor McGregor shows off a pair of iconic and one-of-a-kind Gucci fur coats, reminding fans of his greatest moments.
Former UFC two-weight champion Conor McGregor has never been known for his modesty. Despite eight months away from the cage and over two years since his last victory, McGregor is still living and feeling well, and proud of it.
Always on top of fashion, and always a master of social media, McGregor took to Instagram to detail just how one-of-a-kind a pair of his more memorable fur coats are. Not only did both eye-catching coats come with hefty price tags, but they both also appeared in connection with historic events.
Let McGregor remind you that he’s one of the proudest men in all of sports, and check out the post for yourself:

"The Original Gucci mink!I bought this coat for 55 thousand U.S Dollars at the Gucci boutique store on 5th Avenue in New York.The same location I then bought the second one, with the dragon emblazoned on the back. Costing 80k.Both these coats are hand made 1 of 1’s!None others produced.Not only are these coats iconic from a fight game standpoint – One being apart of the UFC’s first legal event in the state of New York, and the night the Champ Champ was born, and the other being apart of the highest grossing event, and biggest crossover fight in combat sports history, McGregor/Mayweather, they are now even more rare and iconic, as Gucci have since discontinued all animal skin clothing from their line.These coats are 1 of 1 and the last of their kind.All white, floor length, Gucci mink!And I have the only two in existence!The plain one has a large tiger embroidered into the seem of the coat, which I paired with a pair of wide-end Gucci pants, while the other has the unescapable dragon, emblazoned across the back, reaching around to the front, and through the entire belly of the coat!Which I paired with my very own [August McGregor pants!I currently have both minks in a large freezer to maintain them. I was advised this by Donatella Versace at the British Fashion awards.I’m not sure what will become of them, but I know one things for sure.These babies are iconic!One of a kind, and never to be made again!Wow!I knew upon purchase these coats would come back to me some how, and they did in PPV revenue, but the more I think of it, these babies are like art pieces now!I am going to leave them to my kids, kids.Who knows what they will be worth in many years to come?I estimate a hell of a lot!When you’re good you’re good, and when you’re great, you’re Gucci!Yours sincerely,The Gucci mink pimp,The Champ Champ,The Notorious Conor McGregor Sr."
Indeed, two events McGregor references – his UFC 205 title fight with Eddie Alvarez and his 2017 boxing match with Floyd Mayweather, Jr. – were massive events for the combat sports world. And even though he last fought in October 2018 in an unsuccessful title bid against Khabib Nurmagomedov, any move McGregor makes still has the ability to send shockwaves through the MMA world.
Although he’s no doubt still living large, 2019 has been a bit of a rough year for McGregor, and not only because he’s been away from the cage. In January, he was handed a fine and suspension by the Nevada State Athletic Commission for his involvement in the post-fight melee at UFC 229. In March, McGregor was arrested in Miami for allegedly taking and destroying a man’s phone. Criminal charges have since been dropped.
McGregor still finds himself in constant fight rumors, and a return to the cage this year could certainly happen. Whether it’s a rematch with Nurmagomedov, a trilogy fight with rival Nate Diaz, or any number of match-ups fight fans can dream up, expect McGregor to make yet another bold fashion statement.
