The footage is from months ago. And I’m guessing he was pretty fucked up on something to punch an old man.

He took the path of contrition in the latest interview because he knew there was no other way to spin it. It was best for him to do a grovelling apology and so he did.

He’s not lost or desperate, it was just damage control.

Definite possibility. When a guy’s fucked-up as much as he has, I’m not sure you can really believe anything they say.

I don’t think you can disagree with anyone that thinks he’s full of shit at this point.

It also doesn’t help that he really hasn’t had to pay for his actions very much, if at all. 

We MIGHT be seeing a different situation if he was actually punished for the dolly incident.

CRE - That video went viral. 10M views on youtube alone. Sucks. That's the world we live in now, a video like that goes viral and everyone judges you forever for it.

This is Conor's toughest test. War with a public that will condemn and judge him in perpetuity. He was always well supported by the mainstream, but he burned that bridge in the eyes of many and now the majority of casuals will probably be cheering against him. Lots of fight fans love to see someone strong fall from grace and Conor gave them justification for their viewpoint. It is what it is. He's very accomplished and wealthy, just can no longer bathe in adoration. Soon his last win in a fight, against Alvarez will be over 3 years old, that fight took place a few months after Rory Macdonald last fought in the UFC against Stephen Thompson. Eras shift every few years at most.

Conor would be wise to battle Diaz next in the trilogy to reclaim some of this lost market share and respect. Win or lose a good showing and the excitement of such a historic bout would do lots to restore good faith from fans. But Nate is animal at 170 pounds now and his middle name is Don.

Sucks. That's the world we live in now, people find out when you do something terrible. It was better in the old days, when a celebrity could assault senior citizens and never even have a hint of a consequence.


The public punishment is worse than the crime. Battling a mob lynching endlessly.

This is far from the shitiest thing mcgregor has done cre and you know it. I’m glad it’s starting to soak in that he isn’t bulletproof and his shtick will only carry him so far.  The drugs, alcohol, whores, and physical altercations are breaking through to the wider world and his free pass is at its end. The fact that he hasn’t won a fight in 3 years doesn’t help him either. It’s so obvious what’s happening that even he can see something has to change. I just hope that it’s not too late for him to get back to his pre Mayweather windfall fighting abilities.

What consequence has he suffered aside from the fact that people now think he's the type of person to sucker punch an elderly man for no reason? Is that the "public punishment" you're slobbering about? Because that seems like a just consequence of sucker punching an elderly man for no reason.

I gathered from the Ariel interview that he has paid that man 

Ah, so we all think he's the kind of person that would sucker punch an elderly man and he may have paid money to an elderly man he sucker punched.

 

I see the dystopian nightmare poor Cre is distressed about.

 

 

Did you hear the interview?

Jesus, he was more panicked being interviewed by Ariel than he was when he shot a takedown on Nate. 

He sounds like he's in rehab. His word choice about slip ups kind of speaks to that. Why was he 'ready for battle' at his mother's 60th? 

He looks like he's 31 in Noguiera years. It sounded like he was handed a few talking points before the interview, got nervous, and flubbed it.

Hopefully he can turn his life around. He can do a lot of great things with his life and position. 

There's probably a reason that Kavanaugh asked him to retire after the Alvarez fight. I don't know what that reason is, but it probably makes sense.

Not a Conor hater. I Despise some of the shit he does but think he’s genius in other ways.

I just watched the ESPN interview and found it staggering...

It’s the first time I’ve seen Conor appear desperate and rattled. It looked like a former great - always used to being in control of his destiny - genuinely worried about his credibility and brand.

I don’t think I’ve ever seen Conor stumble or lost for words. His no-nonsense, face-it-all attitude - and unflinching confidence - evaporated when he was confronted with explaining why he punched a stranger for not drinking his whiskey. Looked like a lost little kid who was being scalded by his Dad.

This is a guy that prides himself on being a warrior. The way he used injury as an excuse for the Khabib loss was embarrassing. Going to great lengths to detail his dislocated toes and giant swollen foot like it was a legendary war-wound: the Conor of old would have sucked up the loss like a man, jumped back on the horse and done his talking in the cage.

The weak reverse-psychology tricks against Nate, throwing subtle taunts to a guy who wouldn’t even mutter his name in victory. Suddenly it looks like Nate - the ‘Mexican Cholo’ - is the one playing chess against Conor’s checkers. A 3 year lay-off and then steps back into the game and dismantles a former champ with no drama.

Before people start pointing to Conor’s bank balance as some kind of benchmark of success, ask yourself why a guy who has ‘fuck you’ money would even care about doing an interview like that. He obviously cares about how people perceive him and his fighting legacy. He can see his homeland beginning to turn on him - pouring his business down the drain - and I think the realisation has hit him that success can be lost just as quickly as it’s earned.

At this point, the man just needs to cut the bullshit; get out of the tabloids; back into the gym and onto the road to redemption.

Conor is done. His fighting, apparently, hasn't evolved and everyone has his number now; Get him to the ground and he's a turtle on his back. Hopefully he invested wisely and didn't blow it all like it was gonna last forever.To paraphrase an old saying; you can spend a lifetime building your reputation and lose it in a moment.

Of all the crap that guy done (throwing the dolly at the bus, slapping and taking that phone from the fan, hitting a ref, and the list goes on), he expects people to buy his apology?  Gimme a break. There’s no telling how much money he’s gonna lose in that whiskey business.

The one and only way he can make people forget about his stupidity is to win a bunch of fights and lose that cocky attitude.  I’m sure some turds will still support him but I can care less about him and his crap whiskey.

No worries. The way he spoke about already having made amends to the man and continuing to do so now and not wanting to discuss any details of the incident sounded, to me, like he had settled with the guy. Just my opinion.

Here's the thing - he only became apologetic when the video came out. He wasn't apologizing in April when it happened. Just think of all the equally heinous shit he's done that hasn't been caught on video.

I'm somebody who suffers greatly with anxiety. Conor does a lot of things I relate to. His erratic and go hard lifestyle likely isn't because he is a douche. I'd hedge my bets that he has a few issues he's needed to address.  when you're off on one it kind of moves your insecurities to the back of your mind.

 

The problem is, depending on your issue, it's easy to put a face on in public. Until you feel failure there. I expect his mind is all over the place.

 

That's just my feel. I'm normally pretty good at working people out

Interview timing was interesting.

Nate not mentioning him after his fight was absolute genius. Here’s a guy, sitting at home, watching the fight expecting his name to get dropped and the needle to start moving. I bet Conor had his Twitter app ready to refresh.

Nate wins in spectacular fashion and calls out someone else instead. Crowd goes wild and McGregor is yesterday’s news.

He must have been sat at home feeling like a post-wank tissue: 2 minutes away from being flushed down the toilet and completely forgotten about. Add the timing of the bar incident and it becomes the perfect - or in his case imperfect - storm.

His PR team probably dragged his ass to the TV studio ASAP.

Hey Cre, glad you're not ignoring my posts. I thought you were ignoring them after you refused to explain the injustice inflicted upon Conor in this sequence of events:

 

-fighter sucker punches old man

-world finds out about it, everyone thinks he's the kind of person who would sucker punch an old man

-suffers no consequences; claims to have paid the man and made it ok

 

Some people might say the real injustice is that Conor's getting away with assault, but not you: you're sure he's the victim. Can you explain why you're so worked up about this? I'm curious if you can explain your reasoning and not sound like an idiot.

You certainly cannot link these things to anxiety:

 

-the dolly attack on the bus

-hitting a ref

-sucker punching an old man

Has it been confirmed that he DID give the guy money? I'm not going to take Conor's word for it when it's part of his damage control strategy.

We need to learn from past history... the only thing to stop Conor from a complete meltdown is going to be Dana and the UFC laying the hammer down.  Just like NFL or NHL unsportsmanlike conduct is not tolerated off the field.
