McGregor’s agent releases statement
Conor McGregor wasn’t on the UFC 223 card in Brooklyn and wasn’t even in the United States as of early Wednesday.
However, he had an enormous impact on the event with his behavior at Barclays Arena on Thursday. Those actions landed him in jail on Thursday night and led to the cancellations of three fights.
He has legal matters to handle, including another court date on June 14. Plus, ‘The Notorious’ is undoubtedly going to be facing civil charges from a number of individuals and possibly Barclays.
McGregor’s agent, Audie Attar, released a statement on Saturday.
“So much rumor and misinformation about my client, Conor McGregor. The matter is in the hands of law enforcement and I cannot really say more. Conor is a great father, a fiercely loyal friend, and one of the best athletes in the world. He looks forward to getting back to fighting as soon as possible.”
There seems to be a lot of frustration from McGregor’s camp about accusations of cocaine use. A slew of fighters took to social media and made remarks on Thursday and Friday, many of those suggested McGregor may have been under the influence of cocaine during his Thursday rampage.
Who knows? Many fighters are bitter at McGregor for the amount of money he makes and special treatment he’s given.
