Former two-division UFC champion and Ireland native Conor McGregor has taken the world of mixed martial arts by storm. That being said, veteran voice of the octagon Bruce Buffer believes “Notorious” may be causing a schism among Irish fight fans.
Speaking in a recent interview, as seen within the video below, Bruce Buffer revealed that he believes Conor McGregor’s attack on the UFC charter bus in Brooklyn, New York back on April 5 played a large role in the matter.
“I think a lot of that may be stemming from the way Conor handled himself at the Mayweather press conferences, which started that feeling. I was hearing it from Irish fans. Then, it culminated into the horrific incident at Barclays. He’s paying his penance, shall we say.”
