Former two-division UFC champion Conor McGregor allegedly attacked a UFC bus on April 5. Within the bus, among many other fighters set to compete at UFC 223, was UFC women’s strawweight champion Rose Namajunas.
Speaking on ESPN’s Ariel Helwani’s MMA Show, Namajunas has come forward to reveal that she is taking therapy following the attack that left multiple individuals injured.
“No, man. When we got back home, we stayed upstairs, locked in our room because we were just paranoid about how crazy the week was. It was really tough.”
“I’m still trying not to leave the house too much or there will be times when I’m just like, ‘Yeah we should just go home,’ like I just have a weird feeling. I live in a very nice neighborhood, there’s nothing that really goes on around here. So, for me to be like sketch. … I’m still paranoid about everything. I have a therapist that I go see,”
“It said, ‘I’m sorry for what happened,’ and then it was like, but then he immediately went on to like justifying what he did and stuff like that and the reasons why he did it. That to me was like, it really doesn’t matter. I don’t care what beef he’s got with who. That’s none of my business, I don’t need to know that information. Do you know what I mean? That doesn’t do anything for me.”
“So there was an apology and I’m a pretty cool person and I always accept apologies, but to me, I’m like a personal person, I like face to face. That’s how I like to handle things. I feel like anything can be worked out, you just gotta talk through it as adults.”
“Yeah, I said ‘f— that,’ I said call Pat [Barry]. I just put Pat’s phone number and said, ‘f— that’ to whatever your message is and call him.”
