Conor McGregor's Coach Calls Floyd Mayweather Jr. a 'Dirtbag' Who 'Beat Up His Girlfriends'

This comes after UFC President Dana White says the mega bout will happen.

Published April 12, 2017

This past weekend, UFC President Dana White said he sees the Floyd Mayweather Jr.-Conor McGregor mega bout happening. And that's all it seemingly took for McGregor's camp to pour gasoline on an already explosive possibility.

During a Q&A session with fans in Australia earlier this week, McGregor's coach, John Kavanagh, didn't pull any punches blasting Mayweather, calling the boxing legend a "dirtbag" and referencing his past history of domestic violence by saying he "beat up his girlfriends." 

"I do think Floyd Mayweather is pretty much a dirtbag," Kavanagh said, as reported by Metro. "He’s beat up his girlfriends. I’ve watched [clips from Mayweather’s boxing gym] The Dog House. He just strikes me as a real bully-type character. He makes these guys fight each other endless rounds until one is badly hurt. He’s just not a good individual."


This comes after White told reporters that "I see this fight happening" adding, "Conor wants it and Floyd wants it. I can't deny [McGregor] this fight."

If this boxing bout for the ages happens, it's a safe bet that its promotion will include Mayweather and McGregor trading a lot more insults back and forth. Kavanagh's insult is just the beginning.
