Conor McGregor fans left confused as UFC star has hair washed by fiancee

Fans have been left baffled after Conor McGregor posted a video of himself having his hair washed by fiancee Dee Devlin.

The Irishman remains out of action as he continues on the comeback trail after suffering a broken leg in defeat by Dustin Poirier in July last year. During his time away from the octagon, McGregor has been posting a whole host of social media videos, i ncluding from his yacht on holiday and while partying.

In his latest life update on social media, McGregor has posted a bizarre video of himself having his hair washed by fiancee Devlin, before the pair burst into laughter. The Irishman himself was clearly unable to take the video seriously, but was enjoying being pampered by his long-term partner.

Fans were left extremely confused in the comments as to why he elected to post the video, with one writing: "Never know what I’m going to see when this man posts." Another agreed: "Ok what is she doing to his hair?" A fan further added questioning if McGregor was sober: "Bro are you way too high haha."

Several fans saluted the pair's happiness with one, writing: "This man became champion, turned millionaire, fed his family and stayed with the same wife and started a beautiful family." Another praised Devlin, adding: "What a lucky man to have a woman like Dee in your life." One fan even questioned if the pair had been drinking again, writing: "After four litres of whiskey."

McGregor's fans also were happy to see him return, with one writing: "This guy is hilarious I'm just happy to see him, doesn't matter inside or outside the octagon." Another concluded: "Power to the champ of champs!"

What did you make of Conor McGregor's latest social media video? Let us know in the comments section below

McGregor's video is the latest in a series of bizarre films posted since he was forced on to the sidelines, including when he decided to use a snapchat filter of a gorilla while talking to the camera, which fans conceded was a "new low". He also posted a video of himself eating an ice cream on the bed while seemingly intoxicated which also concerned fans.

However his priority now is making a return to fighting action which is now expected in 2023. The former two-weight champion has piled on the pounds and is expected to target a comeback at 170lb where his last win came in 2020.

It was announced by UFC president Dana White that fighters have to be in the USADA drug testing pool for six months before competing, which appeared to delay his comeback further. However McGregor is confident of returning in spring, and tweeted: "I am clear for testing in February. I will complete my two tests per USADA and we are booking a fight."
