Conor McGregor has hailed singer Hozier as an “incredible Irish artist” after the singer’s hit 'Take Me To Church' has been streamed over a billion times on Spotify. 

The fighter who is in the US preparing for his upcoming bout with Dustin Poirier, took to social media to praise the 31-year-old on joining Spotify's 'Billions club'.

McGregor posted: "Incredible Irish Artist!" as he recognised the Bray native’s achievement with his 2013 hit.

The Crumlin native is in Sin City where he has been preparing for the July 10 trilogy battle with Poirier.

Although McGregor won the first bout against his rival in 2014, he is out looking for revenge after losing the second bout in January.

McGregor took a snap of himself decorating a huge billboard in the glittering Nevada city as Las Vegas gets ready for The Notorious to step back into the Octagon when UFC 264 hits the T-Mobile Arena.

The fighter captioned the picture: “It’s time to shine again.”

Meanwhile, Nate Diaz's coach wants to see him face Conor McGregor for a third time.

The American returned to the octagon last weekend, losing to Leon Edwards at UFC 263. Diaz has been linked with fighting Demian Maia, but Cesar Gracie favours a third bout with McGregor.

Gracie told MMA Fighting : “I know that Nate wants tough fights. He is motivated by fighting the best guys.”
