Conor McGregor's Coach Blasts Reebok Over Controversial T-Shirt Hours After Agreeing Sponsorship

Conor McGregor's Coach Blasts Reebok Over Controversial T-Shirt Hours After Agreeing Sponsorship

Reebok have not exactly covered themselves in glory ahead of UFC Dublin on Saturday.

UFC's main sponsor released a promotional t-shirt for the event which stupidly had the North cut out leaving an odd looking severed Island left to complete the shirt.

The clothing prompted outrage from Irish fans who blasted the UFC and Reebok for being ignorant over the history of the Island.

Just as things couldn't get any worse for Reebok, Conor McGregor's coach at Straight Blast Gym has also stuck the knife in on Reebok.

The significance of this is huge as only recently was a major sponsorship deal announced between Reebok and Straight Blast Gym.

John Kavanagh has since taken to twitter to show where his allegiance lies, and it doesn't make good reading for Reebok.

The t-shirt has since been removed from Reebok.ie.

John Kavanagh later tweeted out a statement outlining his position regarding the situation.
