2. ‘Your Wife is a Towel’

One of the world’s current truths is that the Internet is forever. If you post something it’s almost impossible to get rid of it. Especially if you’re a global superstar with the world’s media watching everything you post for a story. During the height of McGregor’s toxic rivalry with Khabib, things got very personal.

Usually when fighters trash talk, it’s an unofficial rule that you don’t talk about family members. McGregor went for the jugular and called the devout Muslim’s wife a ‘towel.’ He swiftly deleted the tweet but not before MMA publications had screengrabbed it. Fans lost even more respect for him after this.

1. Old Man Punch

By the far, the worst confirmed incident in the past few years was when McGregor punched a 50-year-old man in Dublin’s Marble Arch pub. To sum up, he tried to buy a round of his whiskey for everybody in the bar but the older man rejected it twice. McGregor reacted violently.

He lashed out with a sucker punch that bounced off of the man’s skull. Fans greeted his action with derision and contempt. This was a new low for McGregor and he swiftly broke a media silence to apologize because he realized he had gone too far. After facing assault charges, the Irish court fined him for his pathetic action.
