Sityodtong: ‘If McGregor was a free agent, ONE Championship wouldn’t sign him’

Makes Statement

Sityodtong, the founder of ONE Championship, UFC’s mixed martial art equivalent in Asia, says he would not hire McGregor.

If Conor McGregor was a free agent, ONE Championship would not try to sign him…We don’t want somebody to swear at people, throw water bottles, disrespect people, call out people’s wives and children, and — in my opinion — other distasteful stuff that is not representative of true martial arts. We have heroes like Angela Lee, who is pound-for-pound one of the best female world champions on the planet. But yet she is humble, she is kind, she’s sweet.
