Denies claim he fathered woman’s daughter

Makes Statement

McGregor denies woman’s claims that he fathered her daughter. Terri Murray, 26, says one-year-old Clodagh was born nine months after she allegedly slept with McGregor. Terri 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. In photos of McGregor and Terri, allegedly taken in the bathroom of his hotel suite, his hand appears to be sliding under her black leather mini-skirt. McGregor posted a cryptic message denying he is the father, and claims she slept with one of his friends:

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

Cleared

McGregor is cleared of his latest motoring charge at a court in Dublin. He appeared on a charge for not producing his license and insurance when asked to earlier this year, for which he was issued with a summons. Garda Keith Dolan told the court that he was making an application to the judge to strike out all charges as the documents had been produced by McGregor when he arrived. Judge Geraldine Carthy granted the application and McGregor left the court room flanked by his three security guards, saying:

Thank you, Judge.

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.

Driving ban

Judgement

McGregor is banned from driving for six months after pleading guilty to speeding. He admitted to driving his Range Rover at 154kph (96mph) in a 100kph (62mph) zone near Kill, County Kildare, in October 2017. He also apologised to the judge after he was also fined 1,000 euros (£883) at Naas district court near Dublin. McGregor has 12 previous traffic offences dating back to his teens. Judge Desmond Zaidan said:

The speed here is in the higher end…When speeding goes wrong the consequences are catastrophic and life-changing.

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?

Fails to appear in court over speeding charges

Court No-Show

McGregor fails to appear before a court over speeding charges. He had been accused of four offences — one of speeding and three relating to the failure to produce a driving licence. He was allegedly recorded driving at 154kph in a 100kph zone. McGregor was summoned to appear at Naas District Court in Co Kildare but he did not appear when his case was called. His solicitor appeared on his behalf, but the judge said McGregor needed to appear in person:

There is no question of Mr McGregor not knowing about this…I won’t ask why he is not here . . . but the onus was on the defence solicitor to notify his client to turn up for the hearing…If it is contested I won’t hear the case in absentia (in the absence of McGregor).

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.

On The TV single release

Single Release

The band releases On The TV, from Build A Tower, as a single. Aaron:

On The TV is a song about feeling a sense of discomfort, disassociation and extreme anxiety at the state of the modern world. It’s a scream against everything from caged kids at the Mexican border to the rise of nationalism in the UK and US. In the verses I seek solace in family and ask my parents for guidance. It also has a great riff.

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.

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.

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.

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.
