Conor McGregor uses homophobic slur while consoling Artem Lobov after UFC-Gdansk loss


UFC lightweight champion Conor McGregor once again finds himself in hot water after making some controversial and offensive remarks – this time of the homophobic variety.

McGregor (21-3 MMA, 9-1 UFC) was in attendance at today’s UFC Fight Night 118 event in Gdansk, Poland, to support SBG Ireland teammate Artem Lobov (13-14-1 MMA, 2-4 UFC). “The Notorious” entered the venue just before Lobov’s fight, carrying a drink in hand. He was filled with energy, enthusiastically coaching Lobov during the unanimous- decision loss to Andre Fili.

The UFC lightweight champion was colorful throughout his appearance, to the point where he was ordered to restrain himself by referee Marc Goddard. McGregor consoled Lobov as they walked backstage following the loss, and that’s where he was caught on camera repeating a commonly used homophobic slur multiple times.

“I thought you were going to sleep him,” McGregor told Lobov. “All I’m saying, he’s a (expletive). I never knew he was a (expletive).”

McGregor, No. 1 in the latest USA TODAY Sports/MMAjunkie MMA lightweight rankings, has a history of finding himself on the wrong end of controversial situations over specific comments. Prior to his TKO loss to Floyd Mayweather in an August boxing match, McGregor was forced to defend himself from heavy accusations of racism.
