Attire is an important part of the wrestling industry. In fact, it’s an important part of the combat sports industry, both inside and outside the ring. To prove this, the industry has Don Callis and Conor McGregor. But, there can be only one OG!

According to Callis, it’s him. He believes he’s the one who has taken fashion in the industry one step up, and started wearing bright coloured suits, especially Pink. Therefore, when McGregor wore something of similar shade, Callis took it upon himself to appreciate McGregor but with a twist.

Don Callis’ narcissism reached peak when he claimed McGregor is a celebrity version of Callis, but a mini one! It’s a good thing that McGregor wasn’t present in front of Callis when he said that, otherwise things could have been rough, like it was for Machine Gun Kelly.

Conor McGregor had a confrontation with Machine Gun Kelly

At MTV’s Video Music Awards, Machine Gun Kelly reportedly denied a photograph with McGregor. As a result, the frustrated fight threw a drink at him.

Nevertheless, a team member has commented that nothing of this sort happened, and McGregor did not request a picture with Machine Gun Kelly at all. In fact, McGregor does not know MGK at all.

However, this isn’t the first time McGregor is involved in an incident which stemmed from his frustration or anger. There have been other incidents in the past as well.

Coming to the UFC side of McGregor, the last time he was in the ring, he faced Dustin Poirier at UFC 264. During the fight, McGregor suffered a major injury and broke his left fibula and tibia. The fight was stopped midway, and Poirier walked away with the victory.

Even during this time when doctors were checking on him, McGregor passed a comment on Poirier’s wife, claiming she was trying to message him. Now, some understand that he was in pain and with all the questions being asked, he snapped.

On the other hand, some refuse to excuse McGregor because commenting on an opponent’s partner is outside the realm of the sportsman spirit.

Currently, McGregor is on medical suspension by UFC until January 2022.
