Conor McGregor just brought the word 'bolloxed' to an international audience

What a day to be Irish.


A post shared by Dee Devlin (@deedevlin1) on

AS YOU KNOW by now, Conor McGregor lost to Floyd Mayweather in ten rounds last night.

It was a valiant effort on McGregor’s part, but he just wasn’t able to overcome the experience of Floyd Mayweather.

McGregor rolled into the press conference with a bottle of Notorious Whiskey, which he assured fans would be available soon, and described the encounter as “a bit of fun”.

Later on, McGregor seemed to blame fatigue and tiredness for his loss, and used a delightfully Irish word to describe his condition and mood: bolloxed.

MMA journalist Ariel Helwani tweeted the quote…

And was met with tons of Irish fans rushing to correct his spelling.

Not only did Conor acquit himself well in the ring, but he brought bolloxed to an international audience.

What a man.
