Felder Talks McGregor Incident
While Paul Felder was not on the bus that was attacked by Conor McGregor and his entourage, he still witnessed the mayhem caused at UFC 223 media day.
“I couldn’t believe it. I was like, ‘What is this guy doing?’” Felder told Ariel Helwani on the latest episode of The MMA Hour.
“What is he on? What’s on his mind? You have everything going on in the world and this is how you act? I couldn’t believe it.”
Felder originally thought it was Khabib Nurmagomedov and his entourage who were charging at the bus last week.
“At first I thought it was some of Khabib’s guys, but then I thought, ‘Wait, that’s Khabib’s bus’. Then I realized it was all the Irish guys and I was like ‘Oh sh*t!’” Felder told Ariel Helwani.
“Then I saw Conor and I was like, ‘Oh my God!’ There’s Conor running around in the Barclays Center and I couldn’t believe it. I was waiting for someone to pull out a serious weapon. Depending on who you are messing with, you don’t know what these guys are bringing with them.”
Felder also claims to see UFC staff “tossed around” by McGregor’s crew.
“It was scary. I really felt for the UFC staff. I saw some of them getting tossed around and thrown around by some of Conor’s guys. They were in their 50’s too, they were not young guys that were out there. They weren’t fist fighting. They were just making a scene, throwing sh*t at a bus. It was just stupid.”
