Conor McGregor leads busload of glamorous women and Love Island star back to his hotel at 5am after Anthony Joshua fight | The Sun

CONOR McGregor led a busload of women and a Love Island star back to his hotel after watching the Anthony Joshua fight.

The Irish MMA star, 35, was ringside as the English heavyweight knocked out Robert Helenius on Saturday night.

He had earlier arrived at the O2 Arena flanked by his own ring girls dressed in Irish Forged Stout gear – including glamorous boxer Ebanie Bridges.

McGregor left the venue at around 12.30am, before heading to the Novikov restaurant in Mayfair.

He then attended the Reign nightclub in Piccadilly, before returning to the The Berkeley Hotel with the group of women – including actress and estate agent Jacqueline Pirkle.

An onlooker told The Sun Online: "His security team were doing their best to make sure they didn’t get seen and they definitely didn’t want to get seen together.

"They ushered them both out of a fire exit and through a loading bay to get on the bus."

Among the group returning to the hotel was former Love Islander Luca Bish, who featured in the 2022 series.

McGregor previously stayed at The Berkeley Hotel during two days of partying in December 2017 – when pals led 10 women back to his room.

Earlier in the evening, the Irish fighter rocked up to Joshua's fight with the Finnish Helenius wearing a dapper blue suit jacket with a black shirt.

After the bout, McGregor took to the ring and grabbed the mic to address the sold out 02 Arena.

The Notorious was complimentary of both men – but less so of KSI.

McGregor, 35, said: "Greatness don't rush.

"Joshua took his time, he landed a big heavy shot, I'm just happy Helenius got up.

"The fans should be grateful for the Finnish coming in, last minute replacement, no fear he gave a great performance, did himself proud and his team and I'm happy to see him get up.

"Big congrats to AJ, big congrats to Eddie [Hearn], big congrats Forged Irish Stout, and I know your man KSI is in the crowd and he couldn't box eggs if he worked in an egg boxing factory.

"So if he wants to get in here I'll give him a final yoke, bare-knuckle if you want!"

McGregor's Forged Irish Stout sponsored Saturday night's fight.

The former UFC featherweight and lightweight champion is still due to fight Michael Chandler when he finally returns to the octagon.
