Who happens to spend $80,000 (around £60,100 in real money - my word the exchange rate is brutal right now) on suits for every media tour he does.

According to a recent report by TMZ Sports, long-time UFC wardrobe coordinator David Heil -- CEO of David August clothing --says McGregor  buys eight to 10 custom suits before every media tour, with the outfits ranging anywhere from $4,000 to $10,000.
