“I must say I was quite worried. I went into shock when I saw him getting tossed around the Octagon by Chad. We didn’t expect that at all. It was completely new to us and it was completely new to the fans as well. I was speaking to the fans after and they told me that they cried during that.

“I went into shock. My wife Margaret, she panicked and fled the arena, she ran into the back. Her two sisters were huddled into each other hysterical, and (Conor’s girlfriend) Dee (Devlin), I think Dee was rooted to the spot crying as well, and this was all in the first round.”

Tony McGregor, Conor McGregor’s father, talked on The MMA Hour and said that his entire family was going nuts when Chad Mendes started taking Conor down in the first round.
