UFC star Conor McGregor has truly been living life to the fullest since losing the heavily anticipated boxing rules mega-fight against Floyd Mayweather a fortnight ago.
McGregor is currently worth $34 million (£25.8 million), according to Forbes, so he has the means to lift his post-fight spirits in the form of travel, food, drink, and partying.
He has spent most of his time over the past few weeks on the island of Ibiza, a billionaire and celebrity hotspot.
His trip gained media attention on Wednesday when he posted a series of photos after spotting Sailing Yacht A, the £360 million private sailing yacht owned by Russian billionaire Andrey Melnichenko.
From lounging in a villa with his son to chartering yachts with friends, scroll down for a look at everything Conor McGregor has been doing on his island holiday.
After losing the fight, McGregor toasted with whiskey.
Just coming back around after a whirlwind couple of days. Thank you to all the fans for the support of the fight and the event! Without your support we as fighters are nothing so I thank you all! Thank you to my team of coaches and training partners! I had an amazing team and It truly was an amazing and enjoyable camp, and honestly I feel with just a little change in certain areas of the prep, we could have built the engine for 12 full rounds under stress, and got the better result on the night. Getting to 12 rounds alone in practice was always the challenge in this camp. We started slowly getting to the 12 and decreasing the stress in the rounds the closer it got to 12. I think for the time we had, 10 weeks in camp, it had to be done this way. If I began with a loaded 12 rounds under much stress I would have only hit a brick wall and lost progress as a result and potentially not made the fight. A little more time and we could have made the 12 cleanly, while under more stress, and made it thru the later rounds in the actual fight. I feel every decision we made at each given time was the correct decision, and I am proud of everyone of my team for what we done in the short time that we done it. 30 minutes was the longest I have fought in a ring or cage or anywhere. Surpassing my previous time of 25 minutes. I am happy for the experience and happy to take all these great lessons with me and implement them into my camp going forward. Another day another lesson! Congrats to Floyd on a well fought match. Very experienced and methodical in his work. I wish him well in retirement. He is a heck of a boxer. His experience, his patience and his endurance won him this fight hands down. I always told him he was not a fighter but a boxer. But sharing the ring with him he is certainly a solid fighter. Strong in the clinch. Great understanding of frames and head position. He has some very strong tools he could bring into an MMA game for sure. Here is a toast of whiskey to everyone involved in this event and everyone who enjoyed it! Thank you to you all! Onto the next one!
The after-fight party was hosted at Encore at Wynn Las Vegas, where McGregor mingled with celebrities including Orlando Bloom.

Shortly after, however, he headed off to the island of Ibiza. Here he is starting things off at Ocean Beach.
Some of his Ibiza moments, such as this breakfast setting, seem relaxing and wholesome.
So does the moment he said he was “teaching his son how to fly.”
However, he’s also been partying pretty hard.
He’s enjoyed a cigar or two…
(And a glass of whisky or two)…
Sprayed the crowds in clubs…
And experienced life on board a pretty big yacht.
He’s also coined what he calls the “wealth belly,” the rich man’s “dad bod.”
He’s been eating like a king.
Even his pyjamas are regal-looking.
The latest update from his trip? While wearing a Versace dressing gown, McGregor spotted Sailing Yacht A, the £360 million private sailing yacht owned by Russian billionaire Andrey Melnichenko. The yacht is one of the largest in the world.
The 360 million dollar "sailing yacht A" pulls up out the back garden this morning . "Sailing yacht A" its called. That's how you know the owner doesn't need to give a bollox about anything. Sailing yacht A. Most expensive sailing yacht in the world. 360mill. Owned by a Russian billionaire. Google it. Crazy!
McGregor was pretty excited to see a yacht bigger than the one he was on, and set off to get a closer look.
Calling it “something out of a Bond film,” he sped a jet ski up to the vessel.
After returning to his boat, he posted a photo captioned: “That was a mad scene. I only posted “race to the next yacht” two days ago and then this one pulls up right out my back garden. The biggest one of all.
“This is an eye opening level of opulence to witness first hand. To me, it is truly motivating. I’m starting to think I don’t have a wealth belly just yet. I’m more just rich fat now. I must keep eating. I wonder if my lunch is ready. Happy Tuesday.”

As we await his next post, one thing is for sure – the island life seems to suit him.
