Conor McGregor isn’t someone who does things in half measures and that clearly includes gambling. He hosted his first-ever extensive livestream on Monday night to launch his new partnership with Duelbits. As expected, the 80-minute stream featured explosive comments about some of his fellow UFC fighters:

He began with a $750,000 account balance and played live dealer blackjack with $10,000 per hand. The 35-year-old ended up betting as much as $30,000 on single rounds before going on to play Crash and Plinko. The final result from the casino games was a loss of almost $50,000.

a $50,000 sports bet on Bayer Leverkusen to win the UEFA Europa League final

McGregor’s final act of the night was to place a $50,000 sports bet on Bayer Leverkusen to win the UEFA Europa League final on Wednesday night against Atalanta, with the game taking place in McGregor’s hometown of Dublin. At odds of -118, he stands to make a profit of $42,500 if the German side comes out on top.

The Irishman rewarded some people in the chat over the course of the night, giving $1,000 to one individual. This is not just a one-off livestream either, with ‘The Notorious’ set to host a similar event every month for the foreseeable future.
