UFC’s biggest superstar Conor McGregor is upset over the latest restriction put by Ireland’s Government due to the rise in COVID-19 cases. Conor proudly hails from Ireland but is not happy with the way the Irish government has been handling the pandemic situation there. Conor was about to do a charity boxing event which got canceled due to the latest restriction imposed in the country. Conor McGregor seems pretty much frustrated by everything happening in his nation and he has taken out his anger on Twitter and has heavily criticized his Government.
“Frustrated with these new restrictions in Ireland,” Conor McGregor tweeted. “We’ve done our part and we’ve followed the rules. NPHET told us last month we had the virus suppressed. And yet we move forwards only to move backwards again. All we ask for is clarity, and we have gotten none since the beginning.”
“Ireland and its people, with its high vaccination rate, after enduring the longest lockdown in the free world, is not to blame for the undersupply of our healthcare system. Those in government are! Almost 3 years to bolster this for our people, and nothing.
Ireland will rise!”
“For [Tánaiste of Ireland] Leo [Varadkar] to come out today on foreign soil, and directly blame the non vaccinated, is the most divisive comment I’ve seen yet. It is neither the vaccinated, nor non vaccinated, nor any Irish citizen for that matter, that is responsible for this unpreparedness. It is government!”
“There is just no backing from me here anymore,” Conor McGregor continued. “We will rise! Tonight’s address read like an advert to me. When Ireland stands. The world will know.”
“We are almost 3 years into this. We have came together time and time again! Gone above and beyond what has been asked of us! Yet all we have gotten back is hypocritical address after hypocritical address! The audacity! I am ashamed of my nations government at this time.”
Conor McGregor last fought against Dustin Poirier in their trilogy fight to settle their heated rivalry. The duo has fought thrice with Dustin winning two of those three fights. Conor McGregor won the first fight between them in 2014 via first-round KO. Dustin won the second fight via KO in the second round. The fight was stopped as Conor at the end of the first round broke his foot and was unable to continue. Dustin was declared the winner by TKO via doctor stoppage. Right after the fight Conor McGregor got surgery and is now resting and recovering from it.
