Back in April 2015, Devlin tweeted a picture of a $30,000 watch that McGregor had bought her. Her message was simply “OMG!!” The diamond encrusted Tortue watches retail at around $27,000, with prices varying for the different colors.
2. Devlin Says the More Famous McGregor Gets, The More Nervous She Gets
In an interview with the Irish Independent in January 2015, Devlin admitted that:
I find I’m more nervous now – the first time I went to see Conor fight there was 50 people in a room, and I thought ‘There’s no way you can be more nervous than this’ but each time it’s just getting that more and more nerve-wracking.
Devlin, like McGregor, Devlin hails from the rough West Dublin streets of Walkinstown.
3. She Manages McGregor’s Finances
According to McGregor, he just wants to spend the money that he makes. MMA Fighting quoted him in May 2015 saying that he loves to spoil Devlin. He added “She has helped me throughout this career…If It wasn’t for her, I probably wouldn’t be where I am today…So definitely, I love to spoil her…She does not work anymore, I hired her to the business…She works for me now and collects the cheques.”
4. She Loves ‘Being Irish’
According to her Twitter feed, Devlin is immensely proud of being Irish. She also uses her profile to update McGregor’s fans on his progress in training, just hours before his fight with Chad Mendes on July 11, she wrote “The Irish are truly the best supporters in the world!!!”
5. McGregor Says He Will Only Fight in Vegas, Boston, New York & Ireland
In an interview with the Daily Mirror, McGregor said that he expects to fight his next fight following Vegas in Dublin. That chat was based on the idea that he would be squaring off against Jose Aldo, not Chad Mendes. Though, the Notorious is adamant that he will only fight in Vegas, New York or Dublin. Adding that even Boston is a stretch. It remains to be seen if McGregor can get a shot against Aldo if he loses to Mendes.
