Conor McGregor warned by WWE icon he won’t live to 57 due to his partying and drinking ahead of UFC return

CONOR MCGREGOR has been warned his lifestyle choices may prevent him from making it to his sixties.

The UFC’s poster boy is as well known for living the high life as he is for his brutal knockouts inside the octagon, regularly partying and drinking his Proper 12 Whiskey and Forged Stout.

McGregor, 34, has been seen living his best life during his injury-enforced hiatus from the octagon – which WWE manager Paul Heyman believes is a sign things won’t bode well for the Irishman once he’s no longer fighting.

Heyman, who was recently threatened by The Notorious, told BT Sport: “I’m not a grandfather,

“But I appreciate the fact that I’m old enough to be one, number one, and I’m still thriving on top.

“I would like to see if Conor McGregor at 57 is still thriving at the very top of his entire industry.

“We’ll see if he’s even relevant at 57.

“We’ll see if he even lives to 57 with his lifestyle now, number two.”

McGregor threatened to lamp future WWE Hall of Famer Heyman after the UFC’s parent company – Endeavor – acquired a controlling stake in wrestling’s top promotion.

The Notorious has taken several shots at wrestlers over the years – despite nicking Vince McMahon’s “Billi strut.”

And Heyman reckons the MMA superstar is just a knock-off Roman Reigns – who defeated Cody Rhodes at Wrestlemania 39 last weekend.

Heyman said of the Irishman: “He, as a Roman Reigns wannabe, did the Paul Heyman style, you know, title on each shoulder.

“And you know, gave a shout-out to himself, of course he did.

“You know, the ultimate self-promoter in Conor McGregor, you know, standing nine feet tall and weighing 155 pounds and five foot four.

“So, with that in mind, I said, ‘Look at McGregor, a Roman Reigns wannabe’.

“And of course, you know, he said, ‘Oh, be careful grandpa. I’ll break your jaw in three places.'”

Former two-division champion McGregor will be back in action later this year in a mega showdown with fellow fan Michael Chandler.

A date for his return, however, hasn’t been finalised as McGregor is currently out of the United States Anti-Doping Agency’s testing pool – which he must be in for a minimum of six months before being eligible to compete.
