• WWE Hall Of Famer Defends Conor McGregor’s Bad Behaviour
Conor McGregor broke his leg during his trilogy fight against Dustin Poirier at UFC 264, which was followed by his recent controversial actions and bad behaviour, including badmouthing Poirier’s wife and Khabib Nurmagomedov’s late father.
After Conor’s loss at UFC 264, Khabib tweeted the following:
“Good always defeats evil. Very happy for @DustinPoirier I hope you will get the belt end of the year.”
Conor tweeted the following in response to the above tweet:
“Covid is good and father is evil?”
Conor later deleted his tweet.
For those who don’t know, Khabib’s father died last year due to COVID-19.
Attitude Era Celebrity & 2012 WWE Hall of Famer ‘Iron’ Mike Tyson defended Conor’s recent behaviour on his own podcast by saying the following:
“Listen, I just know, in this business everything goes. Everything goes. Promote the fight, everything goes.”
Conor McGregor is scheduled be out of action with his injury until at least early 2022, but it’s fair to say that we have not seen the last of him inside the octagon.
He has already begun training in the gym.
