Conor McGregor has embarked on a remarkable spending spree ahead of his return to the UFC – including splashing almost $4 million (AUD) on a pair of watches.

The Irish MMA star, 32, is currently in Abu Dhabi as he prepares for his comeback fight against Dustin Poirier.

McGregor takes on the American – having already beaten him in 2014 – at UFC 257 on January 24.

The Notorious arrived in the Middle East early for the bumper two weeks of action on Fight Island and he certainly hasn‘t been shy in splashing the cash while he awaits his main event next weekend.

Taking to Instagram, McGregor showed off two new watches, a brand new Bentley and a fully customised suit.

McGregor captioned the post: “New watch new suit new whip alert.”

The first watch, Jacob & Co’s Astronomia Tourbillon Baguette, is valued at a jaw-dropping $1.3 million.

Jacob & Co claim the timepiece has a “total of 342 invisibly set, baguette-cut diamonds” on the backdrop and a further “80 invisibly set, baguette-cut diamonds” on the lugs.

The base dials boasts a further 133 triangle-cut white diamonds, totalling 16.8 carats by itself.

But that’s not even the only watch McGregor picked up during his most-recent shopping spree.

He also bought another timepiece from Jacob & Co, this time with a more X-rated flavour.

The incredible diamond-encrusted timepiece – called the Rasputin – boasts blue hands and a naughty secret.

With the touch of a button, a hidden sex scene emerges from behind a shimmering door.

Jacob & Co revealed to The Sun the Irishman paid even more for this gem – a whopping $2.65 million.

McGregor didn‘t leave the fun and games there, though – also buying his “new whip”.

Driving his Rolls Royce with the top down to collect his latest toy – a luxury Bentley – the Irish star appeared to be in his element.

All the while, McGregor was wearing a new, tailored suit.

The blue ensemble even boasts his initials – ‘C McG’ – on the cuffs of the shirt.

McGregor is now fully focused on getting his job done by earning a 23rd professional MMA victory.
