Former UFC two-division champion Conor McGregor is making headlines for a fracas that took place April 5 in Brooklyn, New York. Now Bruce Buffer has come forward with his thoughts on the matter.
Newly crowned UFC lightweight champion Khabib Nurmagomedov had a confrontation with McGregor’s teammate and friend Artem Lobov in a hotel leading up to UFC 223. Looking to retaliate, “Notorious” and a large entourage made their way backstage of the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York on Thursday, April 5.
Nurmagomedov was in a bus within the center’s loading dock along with a series of other red corner fighters for UFC 223. McGregor and the large group of individuals allegedly attacked the bus, leading to the injury of several people.
As seen within the video above, “veteran voice of the octagon” Bruce Buffer has decided to come forward with his thoughts on the matter. Buff condemned McGregor for doing something some may consider “gangster.”
“You step out of the octagon and try to be a ‘G’ or a gangster as people term it, that was not gangster activity.” Buffer said. “Gangster activity is more like the way Khabib was handling it.”
