Conor McGregor's fun times at Longitude didn't last too long as he left Marlay Park for Russia on Saturday night.

The UFC fighter turned 30 on Saturday and had a private area of Longitude for himself and his friends.

But after, he shared a video of himself and his team landing in Russia which is fueling rumours that McGregor is ready to return to the Octagon to fight the Russian Khabib Nurmagomedov.

McGregor admitted that he was set to return to the octagon in May in a fight in Brazil that would have seen him surpass Ronaldo and Messi as the world's richest athlete.

But as he said himself "something came up".

That something was the attack on a bus which McGregor was arrested for in New York and his court case is due to be heard again at the end of July.
