Conor McGregor models his new denim fashion line as Irish star takes break from training for UFC return

BLACK 'N BLUE

CONOR McGREGOR took a break from preparing for his UFC return to model his new range of denim clothing.

The Irishman gave fans a sneak peak into the latest August McGregor release.

He has had a fashion line since 2018, teaming up with A-list tailor David August Heil - the man behind the infamous 'F*** You' suit.

August McGregor was first announced in 2017, ahead of the UFC stars' blockbuster boxing match with Floyd Mayweather.

The range was meant to drop in spring 2018 but faced delays.

Their first release of products was quite small, with four T-shirts, two hoodies and two caps on sale.

But since then the company has expanded with new ranges, including bomber jackets and sweatpants.

The pair first came up with the idea while McGregor, who has also branched into the drinks world with his Proper No. Twelve Irish whiskey, was being fitted for one of his custom-made suits.

McGregor's latest launch comes as he closes in on a return to the UFC, having verbally accepted a rematch against Dustin Poirier, who he beat in 2014.

And he is already training for the fight, which has been pencilled in for January 23.

McGregor has not fought since January and even retired in June having been frozen out of the title picture.

But he looks set to make his third comeback in four years, having shared several online posts training in the gym.

And he is set to come back with old rival Khabib Nurmagomedov, 32, heading out.

Nurmagomedov announced a shock retirement after beating Justin Gaethje, 31, at UFC 254 - with his lightweight belt now due to be vacated.
