Conor McGregor seems to have put the disappointment of his UFC defeat behind him as he enjoyed a day of drinking with pop star Justin Bieber.

The Crumlin star (33) shared a string of photos on his social media as he lay on a sun lounger next to the Canadian A-lister.

The pair enjoyed their day of sunshine at the upmarket Beverly Hills Hotel in LA as they lounged in a luxury cabana and downed whiskey from the Proper 12 brand founded by McGregor.

Baby hit maker Bieber wore tan chinos, showing off his heavily tattooed chest. McGregor sported neon yellow swim shorts and bulky cast on his leg, which he broke in his loss to rival Dustin Poirier earlier this month at UFC 264.

Posting on Instragram, McGregor wrote: “JB and Big Foot, we rule Beverly Hills! God Bless my brother! Backed by the highest power!”

He added: “Can’t wait to get to the show tomorrow! Legends Unite!”

Justin offered some words of encouragement for McGregor in his caption, saying: “Breakfast of champions…It's about how you get back up.”

McGregor has been enjoying some down-time state-side as he recovers from surgery since breaking his tibia during his trilogy fight against Poirer in Las Vegas.

The Dubliner turned 33 earlier this month and was inundated with birthday wishes, including from his fiancé Dee Devlin.

Dee and Conor have been together since 2008 and got engaged last August. They share three children together: Conor Jnr (4), Croia (2) and Rian, who was born in May.

Dee shared a selection of photos on her Instagram page to mark the occasion, writing: “Happy birthday my king! I Love you.”

McGregor, who Forbes listed as the highest paid athlete in the world this year, is estimated to be worth around €300 million after he and his partners sold their €500 million stake in his whiskey company earlier this year.

McGregor is no longer the majority shareholder of Proper 12 Whiskey but shared the nine-figure sum with his agent Audie Attar and their partner Ken Austin.

McGregor earned a massive $23,011,000 (€19,438,782) which includes a cool $18 million (€15 million) pay-per-view bonus from his UFC 264 defeat at the hands of Poirier.

Even though McGregor was forced to concede to a doctor's stoppage due to a broken leg in just one round, the Notorious still pocketed his guaranteed $5,000,000 (€4,223,559) by the UFC, and saw his purse increase to just over $23 million due to the success of the PPV event.

With the fight over in just five minutes before the end of round one it means the Dubliner was paid just under €4 million for each minute he was in the Octagon.
