Conor McGregor’s partner Dee Devlin has said that she is “proud beyond words” following the fighter’s UFC win over Donald Cerrone.

The Notorious’ fight against the ‘Cowboy’ was over after 40 seconds in the main event on Sunday morning.

Posting on Instagram, Dee shared a photo of her and McGregor after the victory simply saying: “Proud beyond words ❤️.”

Meanwhile, McGregor’s win has seen him climb the official UFC lightweight rankings.

He is now being lined up to face a number of big names, including a potential rematch with the lightweight champion Khabib Nurmagomedov, while boxing legends Floyd Mayweather and Manny Pacquiao are also said to be interested in a bout.

McGregor’s win has seen him move one place up the lightweight rankings, via UFC reporter Aaron Bronsteter, with the 31-year-old replacing Justin Gaethje in third place and Gaethje moving down to fourth.

Still above McGregor are the champion Nurmagomedov, Tony Ferguson and Dustin Poirier, while Cerrone remains fifth following his humiliating defeat.

Cerrone faces six months on the sidelines after the loss as a result of the injuries he sustained from it, with a nasal fracture and possible mild orbital fracture needing to be cleared by a maxillofacial physician before he can enter the octagon again.

McGregor, meanwhile, was involved in a bizarre exchange with Donald Trump on Twitter after the two praised each other for their achievements.

McGregor branded Trump a “phenomenal president” before suggesting he was one of the greatest of all time.

“He sits atop the shoulders of many amazing giants that came before him. No easy feet. Early stages of term also. Incredible,” the Irishman wrote on social media.

And Trump sent a response to McGregor, posting: “Congratulations on your big UFC win.”

Meanwhile, McGregor’s coach John Kavanagh has suggested he has set his sights on a fight Justin Gaethje.

“Justin Gaethje at 170 [pounds]. That would be my personal preference,” Kavanagh said when asked about his next opponent.

When pressed why, he added: “Because he’s another lightweight. None of them have to cut weight.

“The vision is getting that 155lb belt back so it’s a step towards that.”

It comes as John Kavanagh revealed that he’d would love if Conor McGregor stayed at welterweight and fought Justin Gaethje, but he won’t have a say in the matter.

Even though the SBG supremo doesn’t get a say in the matter, Kavanagh has weighed in on who should be next in McGregor’s firing line.

“Justin Gaethje at 170 would be my personal preference,” Kavanagh told Ariel Helwani’s MMA Show.

“Because he’s another lightweight, but neither of them have to cut weight.

“The vision is getting that 155lb belt back, so it’s a step toward that.

“I don’t see the reason for him to cut weight unless there is a belt on the line, otherwise why would he do it.

“Stay at this weight, don’t cut weight and then when the big one comes along, shed the last 15 pounds.”

Another potential match-up is the high-flying Jorge Masvidal, who was in attendance at UFC 246 to watch the 31-year-old – but shouts for the fight have been rejected by Dana White.

Kavanagh added: “Sure and who knows? It could be that [Masvidal].

“It’ll be Audie [Attar, McGregor’s manager], Conor and the UFC who make those decisions, I’ll just be in the background with the spit bucket.”
