McGregor: ‘I was in the wrong’

Apology

McGregor speaks about his attack on an elderly drinker in a pub and  says watching video was ‘like a dagger to the heart’ and that he needs to make amends.

That man deserved to enjoy his time in the pub without having it end the way it did…I will face this head on. I will not hide from it. I was in the wrong. It was completely unacceptable behaviour for a man in my position…I owe it to the people who trained me in martial arts – and it is not the reason I got into martial arts …was to defend against that kind of scenario. I have been making steps to do better and be better to see it is like a dagger into my heart as a martial artist.

White confirms McGregor ‘will fight again’

Makes Statement
White confirms that McGregor will fight again, despite his retirement announcement last month.
Conor McGregor will fight again…Me and Conor communicate every day. We’ve been talking all this week. Things are good with Conor and I and we’ll get something figured out soon…Conor likes to be in a position where he holds the cards and he does what he wants to do.
White remains optimistic on the prospect of a rematch with either Mayweather or Nurmagomedov.
Yeah, if Floyd wants to fight in the octagon, we’ll do it one hundred per cent. I think that that fight is a possibility some day in the octagon…And, obviously I think everybody would like to see the fight with him (McGregor) and Khabib again.

Announces retirement from MMA

Retirement

McGregor tweets what appears to be a retirement announcement:

Hey guys quick announcement, I’ve decided to retire from the sport formally known as “Mixed Martial Art” today. I wish all my old colleagues well going forward in competition. I now join my former partners on this venture, already in retirement. Proper Pina Coladas on me fellas!

Denies claim he fathered woman’s daughter

Makes Statement

McGregor denies Murray’s claims that one-year-old Clodagh was born nine months after she allegedly slept with him. Murray and McGregor met when he travelled to Liverpool for the 2017 Grand National – four weeks before his long-term partner Dee Devlin gave birth to their first child. Photos of McGregor and Murray, allegedly taken in the bathroom of his hotel suite, allegedly show his hand sliding under her black leather mini-skirt. McGregor posted a message denying he is the father, and claims she actually slept with one of his friends:

The results are in! It turns out we are actually horses. Giddy up ?

4 Jan, 2019

Welcomes second child

Makes Statement

McGregor reveals he, and Dee Devlin, are parents for the second time, as he heads home from the hospital with his new baby. He posted a photo of himself on Instagram, from-the-back, holding a baby seat and the hand of his oldest son, Conor Jr., with the caption:

Heading home with my two healthy babies and an energized and healthy SuperMam. 2019 is off to the best start!

Coach Kavanagh thinking twice before working with McGregor again

Makes Statement

Kavanagh admits he would need to be convinced to return to McGregor’s corner for particular fights going forward. He does not want to see McGregor risk himself unnecessarily in second-rate fights, now that he is entering the final stages of his professional MMA career.

He would certainly have to convince me to go again. I love him, I love the whole journey we’ve had but I’d need a good ‘why’. It might be [Nate] Diaz again because he promised that fight. It might be a rematch with Khabib. But if it was just: ‘Well, they want me to fight that guy’ I think I’d say, ‘I wish you the best. He has a wife and two kids now and I don’t want him taking more hits than he needs to. Khabib hit him with a punch in that fight that he has never been hit with in his career. And even Superman slows down at some stage.

Nurmagomedov, McGregor may reconcile

Makes Statement

Nurmagomedov reveals he can imagine a reconciliation with McGregor, even after the bitter feud that marred their last title fight. Both men are waiting on a December 10 hearing with the Nevada State Athletic Commission to find out if their actions will result in any further sanctions, but Nurmagomedov insists that he and McGregor may not remain bitter enemies.

Everything is possible. Just as McGregor and I feuded, so we could reconcile…Who are we not to forgive one another when the Almighty forgives us?

Apologises for running out of whiskey

Apology

McGregor apologises for running out of his Proper No.Twelve whiskey. The company say they have “sold more cases in less than one month than many whiskey brands sell in a full year”, claiming hundreds of thousands of bottles sold. McGregor says he is sorry for the worldwide shortage and is personally making sure the company is ramping up production.

I don’t usually see reason to apologise but in this case I want to take this chance to apologise to absolutely everyone for our out-of-stock situation. I was at the distillery last week and we have plans in place to be back in stock in Ireland and the United States in early December and onward. We are producing many hundreds of thousands of bottles now.

McGregor’s hopes of Nurmagomedov rematch dashed by UFC

Makes Statement

UFC president White expects Nurmagomedov to face Ferguson when he returns, and not a rematch with McGregor. Both Nurmagomedov and McGregor will come before the Nevada State Athletic Commission on December 10 to discover whether they will be fined and banned for their post-fight brawls.

They’ve got to go before the NSAC which is scheduled for December and we’ll see what happens. Tony Ferguson is the right fight [for Nurmagomedov], he didn’t lose the belt in a fight so it’s the right fight. We’ll see how this whole thing plays out, it all depends on the suspensions.

Responds After NFL Fans Ridicule Throw Attempt

Makes Statement

McGregor visited NFL franchise Dallas Cowboys as a guest of Cowboys owner Jerry Jones at the AT&T Stadium, to watch their victory over Jacksonville Jaguars. He engaged in the pre-match team talk and was also given the opportunity to throw the football. McGregor responds to the social media mocking of his football throwing technique by pointing out he wasn’t exactly dressed for the occasion.

That was all, y’all.

Odds cut on McGregor entering ‘I’m A Celebrity…2018’

Makes Statement

With only a few weeks to go before I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here! 2018 launches, bookmakers cut the odds that McGregor will be joining as a contestant. McGregor is being tipped as a likely contender for the show after losing his recent fight and being suspended and ordered not to fight for a month by the UFC, due to injuries. The suspension will run until November 6 and I’m A Celebrity launches in mid-November. Jessica Bridge from bookmakers Ladbrokes comments:

McGregor’s faced a fair few snakes in UFC, so the celebrity jungle should be a breeze for the Irishman.

White: McGregor ‘upset’ about loss, doesn’t care about brawl

Makes Statement

Following the events that closed out UFC 229, White gives a brief statement talking about how McGregor was upset at the defeat, and didn’t care about the brawl:

He didn’t care about the fight after. He was more concerned with the fight. He said ‘listen man, I’m upset. I don’t give a shit about any of that, we don’t like each other.’…You know he doesn’t like Khabib and the whole deal, but he didn’t press charges against him and the whole team. He doesn’t care about that. He cares that he lost the fight.

Dana White UFC 229 Post-fight Press Conference

Nurmagomedov apologises at post fight press conference

Apology

At the press conference following McGregor’s defeat by Nurmagomedov and the chaos that ensued, Nurmagomedov says Russian president Vladimir Putin called to congratulate him, and he apologises to the commission.

First of all I want to say sorry to the athletic commission and second to Vegas. This is my bad side…I’m human being. I don’t understand how people can talk about (how) I jump over the cage…He talk about my religion, he talk about my country. He talk about my father. He come to Brooklyn and he broke bus. He almost kill a couple of people. What about this shit?…My father teach me you have to always be respectful… You can not talk about religion. You can not talk about nation…I know my father going to smash me when I go home.

UFC 229: Khabib Nurmagomedov Post-Fight Press Conference (FULL)

Nurmagomedov pleads with White to award belt

Makes Statement

After defeating McGregor, then brawling in the crowd, and as Las Vegas metro police attempt to restore order, Nurmagomedov climbs back into the octagon and pleads with White to give him his belt: “Put my belt on me.” White refuses, fearing an even greater safety issue. He explained that angry fans would pelt him with anything they could get their hands on. Khabib continues to protest:

“I don’t care. I’m ready for this. If I have to be arrested, then I have to be arrested. But I want my belt put on me.

Post-fight chaos: Nurmagomedov brawls in crowd, McGregor attacked in octagon

Fight

The biggest fight in UFC history ends in chaotic scenes in Las Vegas.

After defeating Mcgregor with a submission, Nurmagomedov leaps over the cage to attack McGregor’s team-mate Danis, sparking a fight. One of the Russian’s entourage then stormed the octagon to punch the prone McGregor in the back of the head in front of 18,000 frenzied spectators, including Hollywood stars such as Mel Gibson.

Both fighters were led away and there was no belt presentation but the ring announcer declared Nurmaomedov the winner, prompting a chorus of boos from the crowd. The Nevada State Athletic commission have withheld Khabib’s $2million pay-check after reviewing footage but decided to award McGregor’s $3million. Three of Nurmagomedov’s team were initially arrested, but McGregor didn’t want to press charges so they were later released.

Finger injury ahead of fight

Personal Injury/Fall

McGregor reveals he got a tooth embedded in his finger during training for his fight with Nurmagomedov at UFC 229.

I was sparring a 90kg fighter, Ion Pascu, they call him the bomber. Like me, he sometimes spars with no gumshield…I smacked him with a clean shot, and his tooth embedded into my knuckle. Welcome to the fight game, the real fight game. You’ve got to get in and do it, it is what it is.

Talks Mayweather rematch – boxing or MMA

Makes Statement

McGregor tells ESPN’s Ariel Helwani he will win this weekend by a “devastating KO” and then assess who he faces next from a long list of possible opponents, including a rematch with Mayweather, in either boxing or MMA.

If [Mayweather] has the bottle to come over and deal with this, like he said he has, let’s see what happens. I would also like to box him again. Everything is being discussed. Every rule set. If it’s not an MMA bout, then I don’t want to know. It’s either a straight MMA bout or a straight boxing bout. If they come looking for modified rules, I would rather just box the kid again. If you don’t want to deal with it, then don’t deal with it and stop going on like you’re doing.

Secretly donates €10,000 to help sick child

Donation

McGregor makes an anonymous €10,000 donation to help Irish boy, Bryan Buckley, 5, in his battle with sepsis. McGregor donated the money to Grainne McCullough for the care of her son Bryan, nicknamed Bru.

Grainne set up a Gofundme page in the hope of raising €10,000 for her son’s care. She says:

Conor has made our dreams come true in so many ways, and I can verify it wasn’t for a publicity stunt, he privately donated to us, I just had to let him know how much we appreciate it.

White: McGregor better at mental warfare than Muhammad Ali

Makes Statement

The UFC 229 press conference for McGregor vs Nurmagomedov was McGregor’s first appearance in front of the press for some time. White says he is very impressed by McGregor’s verbal sparring skills:

Conor McGregor is the master of mental warfare. I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, I think he’s better than anybody, even Muhammad Ali. You don’t ever want to say anybody’s better than Ali, but I think when it comes to mental war game in this sport, or any other sport, Conor McGregor is the best ever.

McGregor is working on his own whiskey distillery

Makes Statement

McGregor reveals he is working on his own whiskey distillery in tribute to his late grandfather.

Working hard at my Whiskey distillery. It is in my opinion, the finest distillery we have on this great island…I know my granda is looking down on me now, proud of my creation…He was an avid, avid whiskey man…One day Granda ?❤?

Working hard at my Whiskey distillery. It is in my opinion, the finest distillery we have on this great island. We have the purest soil, with the freshest Irish spring water, and our golden Irish grain and malt is so golden, sun glasses are required to look directly at them I respect Jameson, the current number 1. But I am coming in strong. I am coming in passionate. I am coming to take over! 77 acres of un-matched Irish soil. Creating an un-matched Irish whiskey. We are producing nothing but liquid gold here. Proper liquid gold. I know my granda is looking down on me now, proud of my creation. I would love for him to be here to get his feedback. He was an avid, avid whiskey man. He was also one of the main campaigners for “early house pubs” before they were made legal across the country. He loved his whiskey more than he loved his breakfast and I KNOW that he would love this! One day Granda 🙏❤🥃

Malignaggi: McGregor will ‘look for a way out’ of Khabib fight, like he did with Diaz

Makes Statement

Malignaggi gives his own pre-fight assessment on the upcoming UFC lightweight title bout between Nurmagomedov and McGregor:

Now, Khabib is not a guy that’s known as a submission guy. Khabib is more of a ground-and-pound guy, which means you don’t have the option to be submitted really because Khabib will just keep you on the ground and punish you and beat you…Conor has some skills standing up a little bit and maybe Khabib will have a hard time getting it to the ground, but if the fight ends up on the ground, it’s only a beating for Conor…The fact is he’s gonna look for a way out of that fight too. Look at round five of the Diaz rematch, he’s literally running for his life…With the fight hanging in the balance, who runs for the entire final round? He was given the decision in a close decision that could have went either way, but who takes that chance though?…These are all character flaws of a man with no balls.

Nurmagomedv manager: We want to beat McGregor’s ass

Makes Statement

Abdelaziz, Nurmagomedov’s manager, says he has not yet heard from McGregor’s team.

Conor’s boss has not called me, has not talked to me, has not asked me anything. Conor’s number one b**** for Dana White. He writes his paycheck…Dana White wants to make this fight, he understands it’s the biggest fight in UFC history. But one of the things we’re not gonna do, everybody begs to fight this clown, and we’re not gonna beg to fight this clown. We wanna beat his ass, he doesn’t set a good example for the sport, he doesn’t set a good example for kids, if we have to fight him, we’re gonna have to fight him. If we don’t fight him we don’t give a f***.

Kavanagh hoping for year-end McGregor fight

Makes Statement

Kavanagh says McGregor could fight two or three times in 2019.

If he so wished, if he was driven to do it and said, ‘I’ve got the other side of things on lockdown, I’m confident with that’…Let’s do another three-year stretch of fighting three times a year,’ he could easily do that from a physical point of view, as long as he found the motivation. You best believe I’d be behind it. I’d love it. It’s so much fun. The experience of training him and coming out [to Las Vegas] for a couple weeks. The lead-up and buildup, the fight. There’s just a different feel to a Conor McGregor fight.

McGregor given sculpture for 30th birthday

Donation

McGregor is gifted a hyper-realistic sculpture of himself, valued at £50,000, by Lithuanian-born sculptor Aspencrow, who spent five months handcrafting the 100kg sculpture from photographs alone. The artist, who has not met McGregor in person, says he knows the fighter has accepted the gift through a mutual friend. The sculpture, entitled Atlas, will be unveiled at London’s JD Malat Gallery on 14 July, McGregor’s 30th birthday.

It is an honour Conor has accepted this as a gift from me. He is a phenomenon of our time – not just a smart athlete, but also a visionary…It’s up to you what you see in it. You can see him as a prisoner, or a God, or just as a person…I like Conor McGregor – he’s a great guy…I feel he’s my soulmate. Some of the decisions he makes might not be correct, but none of us are ideal.

White: ‘We’re not talking about a McGregor fight right now’

Makes Statement

At a post-UFC 226 press conference at T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, White says any talk of McGregor’s return to The Octagon must wait until the fighter clears his legal issues.

I’m not even thinking about Conor until – I’m serious. I know they’re saying there are talks, but we’re not talking about a fight right now. Conor has to get through July. Whatever’s going to happen to him in July, we’ll figure that out. I don’t know what’s going to happen…Is he going to get fined? Is he going to be on probation? Is he going to get this, that? When that’s over with, then we’ll start talking about him fighting.

Chiesa: McGregor bus attack cost UFC title shot

Makes Statement

Chiesa says McGregor’s bus attack cost him a shot to fight Khabib Nurmagomedov after Max Holloway had pulled out. Chiesa feels had he been healthy, he would have been the clear replacement.

I don’t really got a lot to say to the guy. I lost a title shot. I have proof. I was the highest-ranked guy on the card. I would have stepped in to fight Khabib at the drop of a dime. I’ve always loved the fight with Khabib. Bless his heart, he’s a cool ass guy. But this is a sport and I’ve always liked the way I matched up against him and I got f*cked out of that opportunity. I don’t really have too many kind things to say to [McGregor]. You work your whole life for those kinds of opportunities. Do I want mine on short order? No, I’d love a training camp. Like I said, if they walk in the door now and say, ‘Hey, do you want to fight for the title in the next 10 minutes?’ I’m out the door, I’m warming up, I’m ready to go…To lose the opportunity, that’s tough. You know how this sport works, guys. Opportunities like that don’t come along. I could strike along 15 wins in a row and still not get a title shot and I lost my opportunity and my dream. I hope that I’m gonna fight my ass off to earn it back starting on July 7 against Anthony Pettis. But yeah, tough pill to swallow.

Nurmagomedov says he is ready to sign a contract to fight McGregor.

Namajunas dismisses McGregor apology

Makes Statement

Namajunas, who said she was traumatised by McGregor’s ‘bus attack’ says his apology wasn’t up to scratch.

I did get an Instagram message from him, but I don’t really know if that was really him. To me, that doesn’t seem like the type of, it just didn’t seem like a sincere apology from an actual person. To me, I didn’t really, I guess, consider it a real apology…It said, ‘I’m sorry for what happened,’ and then it was like, but then he immediately went on to like justifying what he did and stuff like that and the reasons why he did it…That to me was like, it really doesn’t matter. I don’t care what beef he’s got with who. That’s none of my business, I don’t need to know that information. Do you know what I mean? That doesn’t do anything for me. So there was an apology and I’m a pretty cool person and I always accept apologies, but to me, I’m like a personal person, I like face to face. That’s how I like to handle things. I feel like anything can be worked out, you just gotta talk through it as adults.

Asked if she had gotten over the incident:

No, man. When we got back home, we stayed upstairs, locked in our room because we were just paranoid about how crazy the week was. It was really tough…I’m still paranoid about everything. I have a therapist that I go see.

Makes Statement

McGregor team’s head coach, Kavanagh, lends further weight to fellow coach Roddy’s statement last week, that the negotiations for the title fight between Nurmagomedov and McGregor are “brewing up nicely”. Kavanagh expects the matchup to take place before the end of 2018.

It’s the obvious fight, as his coach and as a fan. As a fan of MMA, it’s the fight I want to see as well. I would almost bet anything — almost bet anything — that fight happens before the end of the year. I can’t imagine it not happening.

Nurmagomedov manager: McGregor ‘running out of money’

Makes Statement

Aziz says McGregor only wants to fight Nurmagomedov because he is running out of money.

The last time I talked to Dana, he seemed this is the fight he wants to do. This is the biggest fight in UFC history, the biggest money maker. Conor is running out of money; this is why he agreed to fight Khabib. It’s OK — we are going to contribute to him making some money, but at the end of the day, we owe him an ass whooping. We need to get this ass whooping for Khabib and get it out of the way…[Nurmagomedov] doesn’t like the guy. We don’t like the guy. We don’t like his team. We don’t like what they represent. We don’t like what Conor represents. I like some of the stuff he does, to be honest, but he thinks he’s a gangster — I don’t think he is. Gangsters, they end in jail or get beat up.
