Conor McGregor risks embarrassing wardrobe malfunction before deleting video
Conor McGregor risked baring all while cycling on his luxury yacht – and swiftly deleted the video evidence.
The UFC icon, who remains keen on fighting Michael Chandler later this year in a comeback bout, shared a clip to his 47million followers in which the song Push it to the Limit was playing in the background.
It featured the Irishman pedaling away and working up a sweat, all while wearing some tiny Dolce & Gabbana briefs that left his fans in shock.
One fan said before the clip was removed: "Dress up please…" A second added: "Ready for Chandler." A third then posted: "Conor is so funny."

Earlier this week the 35-year-old suggested that he would be fighting Chandler in December, despite not entering the USADA testing pool which has a six-month minimum requirement.
His upload appeared to show a fight announcement on the UFC streaming service Fight Pass, but it was later shut down by promotional president Dana White.
He said: "I don't know how that got out or whatever, it wasn't from Fight Pass.

"My team was telling me it was AI, it wasn't real. If that wasn't the case, you would have heard it from us first. You would have got a report from me on Instagram."
Following that stance, White wouldn't go as face as saying that McGregor couldn't fight later this year despite drug testing regulations.
He added: "I have no clue, we'll see how this plays out."
