Michael Bisping Says Conor McGregor Needs To ‘Get His Sh-t Together’ Following Recent Accusation
Former UFC middleweight champion Michael Bisping says that Conor McGregor needs some help.
Bisping’s concerns comes after McGregor was accused of breaking the nose and neck vertebrae of Francesco Facchinetti, an Italian DJ and television personality, just hours after McGregor attended his son, Rian’s, baptism at St. Peter’s Basilica in Italy with his fiancé and family.
“At some point, Conor’s got to get his sh-t together,” Bisping said on his YouTube channel. “Because this is going to end badly one day. You need people around you that are going to tell you no. You need people around you that are going to hold you accountable. You need people that are going to say, ‘listen Conor, what the f-ck man?’
McGregor is a former UFC lightweight and featherweight champion. He is the first man who won two different weight categories belts simultaneously.
He suffered losses in his rematch and trilogy bout against Dustin Poirier. In their trilogy fight, he suffered a broken tibia, but said as soon as he recovers fully, they will fight for the fourth time.
He has archived almost everything in MMA, but his social life looks chaotic.
Last month, McGregor attempted to throw punches at rapper Machine Gun Kelly at the VMAs, but security swarmed in and avoided his punches from connecting. He denies getting into a public scuffle with the rapper.
Aside from bold public statements and callouts on social media, McGregor has had some run in with authorities before.
Two years ago, he was fined for assaulting an elderly man in an Irish pub who “had refused his offer of a drink.” He pleaded guilty by a Dublin court, but was spared prison time.
In 2018, the Irish fighter was charged with three counts of assault and one count of criminal mischief after authorities said he attacked a charter bus in New York that had UFC fighters. He pleaded guilty to a reduced disorderly conduct charge.
He was also arrested in Florida and Corsica and, in March 2019, was accused of sexual assault.
“… The guy needs some help…,” Bisping added. “What happens if he punches Francesco Facchinetti and he goes down and cracks his f–cking headie? And he dies and then Conor’s locked up? Or someone gets seriously hurt? … That’s where this sh–t can go.”
