The Irish Reaction After Conor McGregor's UFC Comeback Bedlam

The Irish Reaction After Conor McGregor's UFC Comeback Bedlam
By Maurice Brosnan Updated

After two years out of the Octogan, Conor McGregor's comeback proved unsuccessful as the Irish MMA star struggled throughout a tense affair versus Khabib Nurmagomedov. That event was overshadowed by what came after, as a mass brawl broke out in and outside the Octogan.

The chaotic scenes occurred after Nurmagomedov jumped into the crowd and attacked McGregor's training partner, Dillon Danis. UFC President Dana White refused to award Nurmagomedov his belt after the fight and confirmed that the Nevada State Commission were withholding his purse.

For Irish fans and media, the events will once again thrust the nation into debate with the controversial celebrity at the heart of it. Tonight, McGregor was not the instigator but his ethic and religious jibes have resulted in some uncomfortable questions.

McGregor did not speak at the press conference, although reports suggest he will return tonight and do so. His future is uncertain, although there may be scope for a re-match.
