Conor McGregor On Lockdown At Moscow Hotel Amid Security Concerns

Conor McGregor’s hotel was briefly on lockdown earlier today due to security concerns.

The controversial boxer Conor McGregor is in Russia this week promoting whiskey and his upcoming comeback tour, but as usual he was plagued by politics that go beyond the ring. McGregor’s Moscow Hotel was briefly put on lockdown after hundreds of angry men swarmed the outside and downstairs lobby. The cause is thought to be controversial remarks McGregor recently made about Dagestan, a region of Russia that is home to his UFC lightweight competitor Khabib Nurmagomedov.

McGregor had previously said he “wouldn’t go to Dagestan to take a sh*t” and criticized Nurmagomedov for leaving as he flew in, adding it was “in the nature of a Dagestani man to run.” If that wasn’t enough, McGregor further taunted to crowd by naming the exact location of his hotel in Moscow and encouraged any brave enough to show up there themselves. Which is exactly what happened. Although someone recently threw a bottle at McGregor over this offensive remarks, McGregor has clearly not learned from the experience and continues to incite conflict and violence wherever he goes.

McGregor’s popular in the UFC has been in the decline for several years now, due in large part to his controversial personal life. It remains to be seen if his return match, scheduled in January against an unknown opponent, will be enough to win back the hearts of the many millions of fans he has lost. Signs point to no: Paul Felder recently claimed that Irish fans are “turning on McGregor.”

  1. I will never understand why people that make alot of money think they are unstopable, we are all one, Gods people, lets all get along and start taking care of each other !!!!

  2. Connor, get a grip. Can you not see peoplr do not like you no more. Thats all down to your persona. We all thought very highly of you one time but boy did it all go to your head. Youre now walking round like a dickhead lad.

  3. he was a smart ass before he boxing then made all that money and now look at him he’s worse than ever, I do not think Dana White should have let him go box while he was under contract with UFC . Now the UFC could’ve made a lot more money off the guy but now they’re not making a dime because he’s not fighting in the octagon he’s fighting in bars beating up a little old men !

  4. Conor McGregor would be sucking a Dagastani dick as I’m writing this if it wasn’t for his security team and the hotels. He is a coward who takes offence to fans saying hello wanting a picture and hits old men who refuse his whiskey. What happened to the days of the UFC releasing losers who create nothing but bad headlines. Guess Dana likes riding the Irish dick.

  5. There is a direct correlation between talent and trouble, we’ve seen it in several sports, Alex Higgins, George Best , Gazza and a myriad of other footballers, TV stars and so on, people put up with a certain amount of bad behaviour because their talent in their chosen field is so dazzling ,however when the amount of trouble begins to eclipse everything else they are let go, fired or no longer hired because it’s no longer worth it.

    Sadly Connor is hurtling towards this point.
