    Something about him allegedly spending a couple of days getting fecked up down in the flats in Dolphins Barn. Pics are inconclusive though.

    He is off the rails for a good few years now imo and I don't he is capable of some great comeback. Feel sorry in a way (know many people don't) as I had a big familly problem involving cocaine and I thought the man was fun and genuine when he started his career.

    This now is a different person though. Well, cocaine (at least when you eat it for breakfast, lunch and dinner) does that to a man.

    I saw the videos doing the rounds today and also a screenshot of a what-must-be radio news bulletin transcript explicitly stating ‘NOT FOR PUBLICATION/BROADCAST’ on the banner and the information regarding said individual presenting himself for questioning to a local Garda station. Anyone else see that one?

    But but...I was told in the MMA thread that fighters peak around 30 so this must be him at his peak, regardless of him doing coke constantly?!?

    Some of the allegations emerging about this case are shocking to say the least.

    If there’s any truth in the latest rumors then all should be revealed in the next few days.

    I like that Khabib has dismissed this Gobshite as seemingly nothing more than an obstacle on his path to greatness.

    I read a great comment on Reddit after Khabib vs Conor. He basically said that Conor's image and notoriety thrived on being known as the crazy, unpredictable and wild guy, but Khabib completely shat on that image. Losing the fight is one thing, but the way he lost the fight was just incredible to see. Conor isn't the wildest or baddest dude in the game anymore. That perception is gone.

    I never perceived him as a pound for pound, greatest fighter in the world. Maybe for a tiny period, but when you've had the likes of GSP, Anderson Silva, John Jones etc there or there about and they all are far better fighters than he'll ever be.

    Yeah I don’t think he can compare to those. For me GSP is the GOAT

    Why is he being a cnut? That's a proud family history to have if he believes it to be true

    Edit Conor isn't even American? I don't see what this tweet is supposed to prove? Are all McGregors supposed to be related?

    That thread is the least historical sounding thread I’ve ever read. I don’t mean to comment on the veracity of what that guy is saying, I know nothing of the McGregor clan, might just be a shite writer but it reads as though it was entirely made up. I wouldn't even be sure the brits invaded Ireland based on that

    1. It keeps alive this shite idea that Irish people were slaves, which is completely false and used by far right white racists

    2.Check the Liam Hogan thread I posted. The guy McGregor is quoting is surprise surprise a far right white racist.

    Is this the first time his name was directly named in the press in relation to the rumors?

    Yep, media law less strict in the states. Irish press not allowed name unless he's been charged

    Can Irish media quote the Ny times article now?

    Edit: I seen few WhatsApp stories and alleged video of McGregor after a session. Don't really know what to believe, people like gossiping don't they..

    I wouldn't have thought so as they risk jeopardizing any future trial.

    Ironic that Conor wants an environment where fighters are respected for their value, skill and hard work. Respect is earned, not just given because youre a fighter. Self righteous wanker

    He'll be back as soon as his money runs out. I give it 6 months.

    I’m no fan of McGregors but you’re being fairly harsh on him there. Think thats a pretty standard statement to make.

    Just said this in the MMA thread but he throws a drink in his face there surely? Or at worse attempts to glass him. The glass is still in his hand when his goons drag him away.

    He’s a fecking disgrace to Ireland. How anybody condones this wanker and looks up to him is beyond me.

    Would love to see Khabib beat him up again, but he probably deserves some time in Mountjoy instead.

    Once a scumbag, always a scumbag. People don't really change as much as they appear to, no matter how rich they are.

    He’s gone right down in my estimations there

    I already thought he’s a wanker
