'With all the money you'll be able to afford a ring for Dee now?' - Conor McGregor dodges engagement question

The MMA star says he 'shot himself in the foot' by referring to partner Dee Devlin as his 'girlfriend'

He's known for his quick moves in the ring, but Conor McGregor proved he's just as fast dodging questions when The Late Late Show host Ryan Tubridy pressed him on a possible proposal.

Hinting at whether a new bit of bling was on the cards for partner Dee Devlin, Tubridy said: "With all the money you'll be able to afford a ring for Dee now?"

To which McGregor replied "I know I shot myself in the foot when I said 'girlfriend'!" rubbing his hands together.

Last month the couple, who have been together for six years, celebrated their son's christening in a lavish party at Dublin's Luttrelstown Castle, complete with a mini-carnival and ferris wheel.

The interview will appear on The Late Late Show tonight. Other guests include Ibrahim Halawa, celebrity chef Nigella Lawson, chart-topping singer Imelda May and jockey Kieren Fallon.
