It was revealed in an Irish court that Conor McGregor, the renowned mixed martial arts star, admitted to offering his former sparring partner and friend, Artem Lobov, $1 million. The offer was made in recognition of Lobov's work in developing McGregor's whiskey brand. However, the court heard that other allegations made by Lobov, who has lodged a lawsuit against McGregor, are being 'hotly contested'.
