It's nice to see that kind of camaraderie in the dog-eat-dog world of combat sports and it's nice to see that McGregor can train with somebody and resist the urge to bury their career on social media with heavily edited videos (see: Paulie Malignaggi, Chris van Heerden).
McGregor was consoling his beaten team-mate and close friend Lobov, who lost a unanimous decision to Fili.
Yesterday (Oct. 21), Held took on Nasrat Haqparast inside the Ergo Arena in Gdansk, Poland.
"The reason I interjected is because Artem gets a fourth cornerman cage side giving instruction". Imagine had Conor talked him through a fight-ending sequence.
"Conor was basically acting like a fourth cornerman", Goddard stated. Walking around the cage side wherever and whenever he wanted. That's simply not fair and not allowed. He can't do as he pleases. There was Khabib, there was Tony and then Kevin Lee stood up. That's what he's supposed to do. "All I'm saying, he's a faggot". That's unfair and unjust. How this makes someone feel better, I don't know.
McGregor also bragged to Brazilian former Featherweight champion Jose Aldo of how he would "raid his favela on horseback" ahead of their UFC 194 clash in December, 2015 while previously calling Russian born German fighter Dennis Siver a "Nazi" in another ugly tweet, that Notorious then issued a half-arsed apology for. My integrity is not wavered and neither is the rules. "I simply had to act".
