Throughout his UFC career, Conor McGregor has set a number of impressive records.
The Irishman was the first simultaneous multi-divisional champion in UFC history, his 13-second knockout of Jose Aldo remains the fastest finish in UFC title fight history, and he holds the record for the most consecutive post-fight bonuses in promotional history.
After smashing so many records inside the octagon, McGregor has now turned his attention to breaking a few outside of the UFC.
A few days ago, the Irishman took to Twitter and showed off his collection of enormous and expensive yachts.
After showing off his “triple deck, superyacht”, McGregor dazzled fans with footage onboard his recently purchased Lamborghini motor yacht, which reportedly costs over $3.4million (£2.4million).
McGregor described the boat as the “supercar of the sea” and showed off the vessel travelling “sideways at 120km an hour.”
Hours later, McGregor explained to his followers that he was planning on using the motor yacht to break a rather unique Guinness World Record.
"I plan to set the Guinness world record for fastest time to lap Ireland by power boat,” McGregor claimed.
"The boat that holds the record currently was man built – pretty cool boat but I am going to take that record handy. 4000bhp [break horse power] powering a full carbon vessel. It's a wrap hahaha."
Who do you think Conor McGregor should fight next? Let us know in the comments section below.
McGregor will have plenty of time to perfect his world record attempt over the next year, after picking up a shocking ankle injury in his last fight against Dustin Poirier.
During the UFC 264 main-event, McGregor snapped his left tibia and fibula and was forced to retire from the bout at the end of the opening round.
While the Irishman’s recovery is going according to plan so far, he is expected to be out of action for at least a year.
Despite the one-sided nature of his last fight against Poirier, UFC chief Dana White has claimed upon his return from injury, McGregor will face the Diamond one more time.
"It sucks, it's brutal and it's not the way you want to see fights end," White said.
"Dustin Poirier will fight for the title and when Conor is healed and ready to go, we'll do the rematch.
"Listen, the fight didn't get finished. You can't have a fight finish that way. We'll see how this whole thing plays out. Who knows how long Conor is out. Poirier will do his thing until Conor is ready."
