Feed him to GSP or Khabib. It was fun while it lasted but the MMA gods need to take care of him.

Fan of Conor, and this was pretty ridiculous, even for him. It seemed like he wanted to be the center of attention the moment he jumped into the cage.

It'll be interesting to see how his PR team (Ariel and the mmafighting guys) handle this tomorrow during the show. They tried to sweep his homosexual slur under the rug until fans started asking about it.

Lmao! Well said, ariel is unbearable with anything Mcgregor related. When he conducts interviews and people have an opinion on Conor that he doesn’t agree with he does his best to sway them. I’ve done a big 180 on ariel this past year. He can be a complete tool.

Ariel is still a (fake) wrestling fan at heart.

One of the narratives coming out of last weekend is that all the **** talkers lost and the humble fighters won and now we have all quiet champions outside of Conor. Everytime his colleagues bring it up you can tell Ariel is a little salty about it.

That said, he still has all the scoops and the best/most content in the game.

This is worse the more I learn about it (I was out of town this weekend so maybe you guys already know all this), but the fight hadn't even technically been waved off yet when Conor entered? And also they weren't able to give the concussed fighter medical attention due to the fracas Conor started? Just ridiculous.

Okay, now he's apologizing to "Marc Gonard" and saying the reason he entered a cage was because he lost it and overreacted because the other fighter was about to die.

Truly a shameful episode from Conor that he keeps making worse.

Yeah, this just makes it worse. This is him taking a shot at Goddard and trying to pass the blame with a pretty blatant lie. Conor is a great fighter, but his antics are wearing thin.

My favorite part of his apology:

As a multiple weight champion, executive producer, role model and public figure, I must hold myself to a higher standard.

“The punch and action that followed naturally resulted in a surge of crowd noise, one that was so significant I had already made my determination that I could not audibly hear the bell sound for the end of the round, I had made my decision to step in with the belief that bell had indeed been sounded, when in actual fact it had not. This is a critical fact to the ensuing proceedings. At this point on my step in, and you will clearly see from the video replay that I only step across and do not wave the fight off. Charlie Ward, understandably so had reeled off in celebration thinking that I had indeed ended the contest and not as I had actually done, called time on what I believed to be the end of the round. Two distinctly different endings.”


On a side note, Conor has to be suspended. He threatened a red, slapped (!) a commish...its insanity. If they don't do anything they've set a precedent.

Conor had no official role at that event. Any other fan that did what he did probably would have been arrested. But apparently the commission can't suspend him because he's not licensed in their jurisdiction.

I can't see any disciplinary action being handed to Conor by any other AC's either. If they say, he's not going to be licensed for 6 months by any American AB's or if the UFC won't give him a fight for 6 months, he'll just sit at home continuing to cash cheques. The guy is above the sport.

At this point, it'll probably take a proven sexual assault or domestic case to stop the man.

Conor's agent came out and confirmed the obvious - he was never going to be on the end of year card. So no consequence of this at all as of yet.

Conor not fighting until April now?
I’m guessing it’s eithwr Nate or GSP
Probably the only two fights he will get up for
