Conor McGregor lost his fight at UFC 264 by TKO doctor’s stoppage. Dustin Poirier now has two wins over Notorious and the Irishman was furious about it. Even while he was sitting on the mat with a broken leg, McGregor fired shots at Poirier’s wife.
Many saw McGregor’s actions as crossing the line. Bringing a fighter’s wife into things is something that most wouldn’t do, but Notorious has a mind of his own. This has caused one vocal celebrity fan to call for McGregor’s ban from MMA.
Actor Louis Gregory, better known as “Uncle Louie,” tweeted out a scathing message to UFC that they should issue a lifetime ban on Notorious following his actions associated with UFC 264.
Lifetime @UFC ban for @TheNotoriousMMA. Death threats to @DustinPoirier & @joliepoirier are unacceptable. @LVMPD must investigate & @ICEgov should issue a detainer & expedited removal. Death threats are a crime or moral turpitude @StateDept should remove ESTA eligibility and VISA
Dana White has already confirmed that Conor McGregor and Dustin Poirier will fight for a fourth time whenever Notorious is ready. That might take a bit of time, because his 3.5 hour surgery was just completed yesterday to fix that leg break. Conor McGregor now has screws and a plate in his leg, but the procedure went “very well” according to reports.
Odds are UFC won’t ban Conor McGregor, one of their biggest money makers; because he’s still around after chucking a dolly through that bus years ago. This might be an idea to consider as more people seem to be getting tired of Conor McGregor’s antics.
