The decadent cake was piped with chocolate icing and had strawberries and blueberries at the corners. 

Proud of his achievements in both the UFC world and his whiskey enterprise, Conor took a photo of the dessert next to boxing gloves and his branded drink. 

Conor couldn’t resist holding two gold balloons which said: ‘#1’ and ‘proud of you’.   

McGregor made the £127million over the past 12 months, including £112m outside the Octagon thanks mainly to him selling the remaining stake in his Proper 12 whiskey company.
