Conor McGregor competed in an exhibition boxing match last week in Dublin and is being accused of hitting his opponent with a cheap shot.
McGregor’s opponent, Michael McGrane, told TMZ that ‘Mystic Mac’ struck him with the “cheapest shot” he’s ever seen in his life.
“It was the cheapest shot I ever caught in me life, man.”
When the bell rang to signal the start of the match, McGrane says he expected Conor to touch gloves, but instead was struck by a left hook from the former two-division UFC champion.
“You’re meant to go back to your corner, but Conor never went back to his corner,” McGrane says … “Conor leaped at me with a left hook.”
In addition to receiving a cheap shot, Michael McGrane claims that officials had the fight rigged for Conor McGregor.
“The ref was on his side. There’s no way I would have won that fight unless I knocked him out.”
Conor McGregor is still lobbying for a rematch with current UFC lightweight champion Khabib Nurmagomedov.
McGregor and lost to the undefeated Russian via fourth round submission at UFC 229 this past October.
