• UFC Star Conor McGregor Arrested, Nate Diaz Comments

In Dublin, Ireland, former two-division UFC World Champion Conor McGregor was arrested for “alleged road traffic violations”.

Karen Kessler (Conor’s spokesperson) issued the following statement to ESPN:

“Mr. McGregor was driving to the gym when he was stopped by [Irish police] for alleged road traffic violations. He passed the drug and alcohol tests taken at the station.”

Sgt. Margaret Flanagan revealed that this was an incident of dangerous driving. Conor was taken to Lucan Garda Station, where he was later charged and released.

He will appear at Blanchardstown District Court at a later date.

This isn’t the first time Conor is facing legal trouble.

Apart from the several driving offenses, he was arrested in 2018 for throwing a dolly through a bus window while trying to attack Khabib Nurmagomedov.

In 2019, he pleaded guilty to assault for punching an old man at a bar. He was fined 1,000 Euros.

Conor’s former opponent Nate Diaz made the following tweets about this situation:

“I’ll fight Conor’s dumb a$$ right now.

But he ain’t capable now or this year.

Incapable a$$.”

Nate has one more fight left on his UFC contract and he wants to retire after that. Nate & Conor are 1-1 against each other. Their fights took place in 2016.

On the other hand, McGregor wants to fight UFC #1 Men’s Pound-For-Pound Fighter, Kamaru Usman, for the UFC Welterweight Championship.

Below is what he said on his YouTube channel:

“Myself versus Usman for the 170-pound title in my comeback fight is the one I’m eyeballing at the minute.

Why cut the weight? I’ve already won the 155-pound title. I got myself to a lightweight frame, but you know, I’m big now. I feel big. I feel strong. I feel healthy. I’ve got good energy. I’m coming back from a gruesome injury. I don’t want to be depleting myself. There should be no need to deplete myself.

And I feel confident against Usman – a jab-happy, sloppy, orthodox wrestler with no submissions whatsoever. What’s he going to do? Where’s the danger here? I don’t see danger.

No one has ever obtained three titles in three divisions like I will do if we make this fight.”

Conor then said the following about his return date:

“Late summer I could [return], but I want to be true to myself and bring out the best in myself. I want to do this for my fans and the people supporting me. I want to show the best I can possibly be. I’m very excited.

There is history to be made. This game needs to be shook up. Again. The triple crown has never been done.”

Below is how Usman tweeted after Conor’s comments:
