Former UFC two-division champion Conor McGregor has been making headlines as of late for an incident that took place inside the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York. Now former UFC interim welterweight title challenger Kevin Lee has come forward with his thoughts on the matter.
On Thursday, April 5, a bus filled with fighters set to compete at UFC 223 was allegedly attacked by Conor McGregor and a large group of the fighter’s entourage. Multiple fighters were injured in the fracas, including Michael Chiesa and Ray Borg.
After turning himself in to local police, “Notorious” is now facing misdemeanor charges of assault and a felony charge of criminal mischief. Speaking to MMA Weekly, Kevin Lee offered his thoughts on the matter.
Explaining that he believes McGregor has potentially not felt like a champion in a while, the fighter explained that McGregor may be “acting out.” Lee then said, “I ain’t going to give that cokehead too much press.”
