Conor McGregor is remaining unrepentant after his shattering defeat against Dustin Poirier at UFC 264.
The Irishman was branded classless after following a week of taunting Poirier about his wife and telling his opponent he was going to murder him with another angry outburst as he sat slumped against the cage with a broken leg.
Many believed it was a bad look and it appears the UFC fanbase is turning against the biggest star the sport has ever known.
But McGregor has a message for those who are casting him as a villain: “You need people like me.”
That was the soon to be 33-year-old’s message for the world after he was unable to appear at a post-fight press conference because he needed to go to hospital to have surgery on his leg.
