Friends of UFC superstar Conor McGregor reportedly trashed his hotel room at the Hilton Liverpool and left behind 20 laughing gas canisters in the aftermath. 

According to Jonny Dillon and Nicola Fahey of The Sun, the 28-year-old MMA star had to hire cleaners to deal with the "thousands of pounds of damage" said to be caused by his friends. 

A source told the Sun reporters, "There were [nitrous oxide] canisters all over the floor, smashed glass and food lying about. They damaged sofas and left [cigarette] butts and his Irish flag. He got people in there to clean because of the level of damage. It's just been carnage. Just full-on partying."
