Conor McGregor enjoys Christmas Day with partner Dee Devlin, children and extended family as he shares photos

Conor McGregor had a Christmas to remember after jetting home at the last minute.

The UFC star flew into Dublin on board a private jet on Christmas Eve and enjoyed the big day with his fiancee Dee Devlin, children Conor Jr, Croia and Rian, and his extended family.

McGregor shared a number of snaps on Instagram, simply captioning them with a red heart.

The former two-weight champion wore a Gucci polo shirt and bodywarmer for the big day, while Dee sported a Burberry shirt. Little Rian was also kitted out in a Gucci top.

McGregor jetted into Dublin with his young family on Christmas Eve after a couple of days abroad and joked on social media that he was "racing Santy home" on a private plane.

The former two-weight champion posted on Instagram: "Racing Santy home in the G 1200 Gulfbird only buzzing don’t know the name of the plane haha happy Christmas my friends and family and fans and support all around the world."

The post comes after an ex-friend of McGregor lost his court battle against the MMA star over controversial "rat" tweets that a judge ruled were no more than vulgar abuse - and not "clearly defamatory".

The High Court rejected an application by retired MMA fighter Artem Lobov for orders requiring McGregor to take down the allegedly defamatory social media posts about the Dublin-based Russian.

In his ruling Mr Justice Garrett Simons, said that he was not satisfied that the statements made by Mr McGregor on social media where Mr Lobov is called "a rat" are "clearly defamatory."

To call a person a rat without more does not fulfill the definition of defamation, the judge held, before he dismissed the application for various orders against Mr McGregor.

The Crumlin native also ended his social media row with PJ Gallagher and Paul McGrath in recent days.

The bizarre spat started when comedian Gallagher took a shot at McGregor by sharing a tweet showing UFC broadcaster Laura Sanko claim he was a British fighter.

Irish football great McGrath then joined in the argument by labelling McGregor a "bully" after the Notorious mocked Gallagher's mental health.

In a video posted online, McGregor said: "That'll do, I'l tell yous what that's the filer that. We're going to call it a day on the PJ and McGrath and all yeah, yous won this round lads yeah fair play to yous have a good one. Lads, yous won this round fair play to yous, catch yous on the flip. I'm gonna bow out and say you know what, I'm going to be the bigger man and bow out."
