Conor McGregor Will Soon Lose Fans, Michael Bisping Says
Former UFC middleweight champion Michael Bisping believes that Conor McGregor will soon face the repercussions of his actions outside the octagon.
Following McGregor being accused of breaking Italian DJ Francesco Facchinetti’s nose and neck vertebrae, the fighter hasn’t received good remarks from his peers either. Bisping particularly expressed his concern.
“I’m not a fan of this guy [McGregor], you know? I don’t think anyone is a fan of this guy, you know, and I think that soon he’s going to run out of steam,” he said. “
The train is going to run out of steam, you know what I mean? It can’t continue like this and one day he’s gonna pick on the wrong person.”
Bisping and McGregor have had an exchange of verbal volleys with one another.
Previously, McGregor lashed out at Bisping’s fellow UFC commentator, Daniel Cormier labelling him as a “fat drunk f-ck” to which Bisping jumped at the defense of DC, hurling one or few remarks of his own at the Irishman.
“Francesco Facchinetti looks like he couldn’t punch his way out of a wet paper bag,” Bisping continued. “Machine Gun Kelly looks like the biggest wimp you’ve ever seen in your life and the old guy in the bar is an old guy at the bar.”
“You’re a professional fighter. You are supposed to be looking for challenges, but what he is essentially turned into right now is a bully you know and no one likes a bully.”
Last month, McGregor attempted to throwdown with rapper Machine Gun Kelly at the VMAs, but he denies getting into a public scuffle with the rapper.
The UFC star has also had some run in with authorities before including 2018 and 2019 including a sexual assault allegation.
McGregor was visiting Rome to have his son, Rian, baptized at the Vatican in Italy. McGregor was partying with his fiancé, Facchinetti and his wife at a hotel before things went south.
