Conor McGregor’s ‘love child’ mum mocks UFC fighter online

The alleged baby mother of Conor McGregor takes aim at the UFC fighter on Instagram. Terri Murray, a 26-year-old mom from Liverpool claims she slept with McGregor during a night out after the Grand National event in 2017.

Murray shared a video of her daughter, Clodagh, falling over on the trampoline with the caption:

‘”Oh god she’s like her dad, can’t stay on her feet.”

It seems Murray is making a dig towards Conor McGregor who lost his most recent fight to Khabib Nurmagomedov via submission. In the UFC lightweight championship fight at UFC 229, McGregor was finished during the fourth round after Nurmagomedov had delivered multiple takedowns and dominated Conor in all aspects of the contest. The video Murray posted accompanied by laughing emojis mocks McGregor’s fighting ability and implies he can’t stay on his feet.

She alleges that her daughter Clodagh was conceived in 2017 after Conor McGregor invited her back to his executive suite at the Hilton hotel. She told the Mirror newspaper:

“I’ve said to Conor ‘Hiya’ and he has gone ‘I’ve been waiting for you’, and I’ve gone ‘Conor, I never got an acceptable picture with you before, can I get a picture with you?”

She then goes on to say: “In the room was an ensuite bathroom and he’s gone ‘Baby, I’ll give you a home movie never mind a picture.”

‘We slept together. To be honest, there was no sleep, we were not sleeping, do you know what I mean?’

Conor McGregor denies claims that the child is his and says she slept with one of his friends instead. At the time, McGregor’s official partner Dee Devlin was pregnant with their child and Conor said he is willing to take a DNA test to prove the baby is not his. Currently, no father is named on the birth certificate.

Khabib Nurmagomedov coach ranks most dangerous opponents for lightweight champ

UFC lightweight champion Khabib Nurmagomedov looks more and more like an unbeatable fighter every time he steps into the cage. The Dagestani champion is 27-0 overall — the mark of a puzzle that has not yet been solved.

While it’s getting more and more difficult to imagine anybody beating Nurmagomedov, his head coach Javier Mendez believes there are fighters out there with the skills to test the champ — four lightweight fighters in particular.

Speaking to SportsDaily.ru recently, Mendez named four of the most compelling challenges for Khabib Nurmagomedov, ranking them from least to most dangerous.

He sees UFC featherweight champ Max Holloway as the least dangerous of the bunch. Next up is interim lightweight champion and Nurmagomedov’s next opponent Dustin Poirier. The second most dangerous opponent for Nurmagomedov, Mendez believes, is former interim champion Tony Ferguson and his slicing elbows. He believes the most dangerous opponent of all remains Conor McGregor, the slick boxer Nurmagomedov defeated by submission at UFC 229 in October.

“Talking about four potential rivals for Khabib I can give my assessment from the [least] dangerous to the most dangerous,” Mendez said of Nurmagomedov (via MMA News). “Max Holloway [would] be the easiest for Khabib. Max has good boxing but it lacks the power to the lightweight division. Next on the list is Dustin Poirier. He’s got stamina and versatility. Tony Ferguson is my second choice. His elbows are very dangerous. And finally [the] number one contender for me is still Conor. His boxing is special, that’s his chance.”

As aforementioned, Khabib Nurmagomedov is currently expected to defend his title against Dustin Poirier at UFC 242 in September. Tony Ferguson, meanwhile, is set to fight Donald Cerrone at UFC 238, while Max Holloway is set to defend the featherweight strap against Frankie Edgar at UFC 240. Conor McGregor, finally, does not currently have a fight booked.

Conor McGregor takes shot at Rafael dos Anjos after UFC Rochester

Last night, the UFC returned to our screens with the UFC Rochester card. In the main event of this card, former UFC lightweight champ Rafael dos Anjos defeated Kevin Lee by submission— and as is so often the case, long-absent star Conor McGregor had something to say about it on Twitter.

Conor McGregor was briefly scheduled to fight Rafael dos Anjos in 2016. At the time, the Irishman was the UFC featherweight champion, and dos Anjos still held the lightweight title. Unfortunately, dos Anjos was forced out of their planned contest with a foot injury at the last minute. McGregor then accepted a short-notice fight with Nate Diaz — and lost — kickstarting his wild rivalry with Stockton based fighter.

Evidently, McGregor still harbors a bit of disdain for dos Anjos for his part in derailing their planned fight.

Interacting with veteran MMA reporter Josh Gross on Twitter shortly after UFC Rochester, Conor McGregor took a shot at Rafael dos Anjos:

“RDA is a hell of a fighter,” Gross wrote. “He simply outperformed Kevin Lee. Can’t help but think back to that lost chance against Conor McGregor and what could have been.”

“I guess we’ll never know, cos he bottled it, with a broken toe,” McGregor responded.

When a fan then attempted to correct McGregor, clarifying that dos Anjos was dealing more than just a broke toe when he withdrew from the fight, the Irishman took it a step further.

“Lol my bad, I didn’t know it was actually just a bruise,” he wrote.

With his victory over Kevin Lee, Rafael dos Anjos rebounds from back-to-back losses to top welterweights Kamaru Usman and Colby Covington.

Conor McGregor, meanwhile, has not fought since October of 2018, when he was submitted by Khabib Nurmagomedov in a bid to capture the UFC lightweight title.

Conor McGregor Builds & Donates Homes for Homeless Families

Is This a new Conor or just a side that people outside Ireland don’t see?

For me, this is simply the side we do not see enough of, Over the last few years, Conor has always been one that will look after his own people, but those inside his circle are not the only ones to receive his help.   In the past, Conor has donated well over  €100,000 to homeless charities all over Ireland & Dublin. 

Just last year he donated  €50,000 to help the homeless problem in Ireland. Dublin homeless charity

“€25,000 will go to the hard-working Simon Community homeless charity. This €25,000 will fund the mobile health clinic for a full year so the people in need can get the treatment they need when they need it.”

“The other €25,000 I will donate to Focus Ireland which will go towards the Family Services Division which helps family’s (sic) in crisis move on from homelessness.”

Just this morning Conor announce on his social media that the development of 6 3 bedroom house was now nearing completion. Check his full post below:

Conor McGregor building homes for Irish families living in hotels

Of all the negative stories that can surround celebrities, there is still plenty of good and positivity to be spread and shared. And despite his status, Conor McGregor is showing that in full force back home in Ireland.

‘The Notorious’ former UFC featherweight and lightweight champion took to his Facebook page on Thursday to reveal the progress being made for his property development in Ireland that is going to help those in need.

“Back on the site today, it has been a while.
This is my first property development.
We have 8 homes here closing in on finish.
3 bedroom houses, designated for families that currently reside in hotels around the capital, without a home to call their own.
But not for long.
Through the storm comes the sun!
Walking around this land and these homes today, meeting all the neighbors, knowing that soon there will be families living here, creating their own memories, and building back their lives, gives me great pride!
Ireland forever!
Ireland first!
Ireland always!” McGregor’s post read.

For the only Irish UFC champion in promotional history, his last fight came in October 2018 when he challenged Khabib Nurmagomedov at UFC 229 for the lightweight title he once called his own.

Unfortunately for McGregor, he would come up short as Nurmagomedov outwrestled him over the course of three and a half rounds before finding the submission (neck crank) win in the fourth round.

Immediately after the fight, the two fighters’ corners got into a small brawl that led to suspensions for each competitor. With McGregor’s having expired this past month, he’s now eligible to return to action whenever he sees fit.

In the always exciting lightweight division, Conor McGregor has no shortages of fun match-ups awaiting him at all times. It just depends on who he finds the most interest in competing against.

Kevin Lee lists five opponents he wants to fight before career is over

Kevin Lee is moving up to welterweight to take on the former lightweight champion Rafael dos Anjos in the main event of UFC Rochester this Saturday. Although “The Motown Phenom” is moving up in weight he is not done for good in the lightweight division.

Instead, he has hopes of fighting a few lightweights in particular before his career is over.

“In no sense am I completely done with 155. There are still a lot of great fights to be had with Khabib (Nurmagomedov) being one of them,” Lee said to BJPENN.com. “That is still something I am looking forward to in the future. We are going to have a date. Me and Khabib, me and Conor (McGregor) it is just inevitable those fights happen. As competitors, we know that. But, I’m kind of shifting my focus to take out (Kamaru) Usman. I want that welterweight title. When I look at him stylistically he is a tougher match. He is bigger, more well-rounded, he doesn’t have that name recognition like someone like Khabib or Conor and all these guys have. This ain’t a bad consolation. Then you never know [those lightweights] may come up and challenge for the belt.”

While Nurmagomedov, McGregor and Usman are priorities for Kevin Lee, there are also two other welterweights he wants to fight: Colby Covington and Ben Askren.

Askren is still kind of hanging on that takedown he got against a 20-year-old me. He forgot about all the right hands I hit him with before that,” he explained. “There are some questions that can be answered in that. There are a lot of great fights at 170. You got Askren, Colby Covington who is still out there. Tons of others. A lot of great fights. Askren and Colby are guys I would want to fight.”

A Well-Rounded Kevin Lee

Against these five very different opponents, Kevin Lee knows he’d have to implement very different game plans.

“Each matchup is different, each style is different. My number one goal since starting this sport was to be the most well-rounded fighter. I’m still on that. I will show that on Saturday,” Lee said. “I will get back to what makes me me. I’m going to press forward and that is what I would do to any of those guys. If I show up to the fight against any of those guys I don’t think they could handle my pressure, my style. I can switch things up and we will see. Those will be interesting in the future.”

Ultimately, Kevin Lee is focused on Saturday when he takes on Rafael dos Anjos. Yet he is hoping he gets to meet the five opponents mentioned above over the coming years of his career.
