2. Conor McGregor

Irish UFC superstar McGregor is infamous for his antics outside the cage. The MMA fighter’s love of a party has got him into trouble so many times. There was the time he flew more than 20 friends to New York by private jet to drunkenly storm the Barclay Center in Brooklyn. Another time police arrested him outside a Florida nightclub for breaking a man’s phone.

In 2019, he punched an older man because the latter didn’t want to drink McGregor’s whiskey. When the Notorious parties, he goes hard. In 2017 he went on a three-day binge in Liverpool, as he rocked from house party to house party. This resulted in a woman claiming that he was the father of her child. To sum up, it’s never boring when the former two-weight champion is around.

1. Tyson Fury

A self-confessed manic depressive, Fury had one of the biggest meltdowns in sports history after beating Wladimir Klitschko. ‘The Gypsy King’ began binge-drinking and consumed cocaine by the bagful in 2016. Furthermore, his weight ballooned up from 16 stone close to 30 stone. This came from his hard-drinking, party animal lifestyle, where he lived off of kebabs and deteriorated to a shell of himself.

However, Fury put all of this behind him in 2018. Two years after his breakdown, the UK fighter rebounded to fight Deontay Wilder in one of the most astonishing comebacks boxing has ever seen. The former unified champion added the WBC belt to his CV with the win. But Fury still loves a party atmosphere. He always sings after his fights and dresses flamboyantly to show off his personality.
