Amidst some historic event happening in the MMA community, a trending topic has been arising concern amongst the fans as double champ Conor McGregor has been involved in another ‘outside of octagon’ altercation.
This time around with a 50 year old man, over a whiskey debate! A CCTV footage emerged showing McGregor punching the elderly man at the Marble Arch boozer in Drimnagh, before exiting the scene as the crowd watched in disbelief.
McGregor’s behavior received a lot of criticism throughout the MMA community including mastermind coach Firas Zahabi. McGregor has also had a Twitter beef with Zahabi when Zahabi predicted for Nurmagomedov to defeat him. That being said, that wasn’t going to stop Zahabi from giving his opinion. (via YouTube):
“It’s indefensible, there is no defense for this, except (McGregor) is a pathetic, sorry excuse for a human being,” Zahabi said. “How do you punch an old man because he doesn’t want to drink your whiskey? Who can defend this? You punch an old man then you run? What a disgusting display. I don’t care how much money you have or how famous you [are]. If this is the type of person you are then then your value is zero.
“I’m sorry I have to say this. This is an embarrassment to MMA. It’s an embarrassment to us all.”
