SLS Las Vegas was in full celebration mode after UFC Featherweight Conor McGregor claimed Fotxtail as his after-fight headquarters on Saturday night.
The Irish champ and his entourage filled up the Northside Café for a late night dinner joined by UFC chiefs Dana White and Lorenzo Fertitta after knocking out American fighter Chad Mendes less than five minutes into the second round at the MGM Grand Garden Arena earlier in the evening.
After showing off his new belt on the red carpet and pausing for some fan selfies, McGregor was triumphantly received by a massive crowd of fight fans from here and abroad, including UFC ring girl favorite Arianny Celeste, who dined earlier in the evening at Katsuya at the SLS.
Draped in the Irish flag and hoisting the belt overhead, there was nothing “interim” about this celebration — McGregor was acting every inch the UFC featherweight champ and seemingly already anxious to take on seven-time defending champion Jose Aldo for the undisputed crown.
