Hollywood star Liam Neeson claims fellow countryman Conor McGregor ‘gives Ireland a bad name’
Becoming famous is pretty easy, any random joe can take to the streets, cause some uproar and maybe be featured on TV or the news, it’s difficult to hold on to that fame. Irish superstar Conor McGregor is finding out this truth the hard way, as controversy after controversy has led the likes of Liam Neeson to hate him.
Conor’s rise within the UFC was a story for the ages. The foul-mouthed Irishman not only dissected his opponents in verbal warfare, but often delivered combat performances that did his trash-talk justice. His legendary KO of Jose Aldo to win the title came right after his championship win over Dan Anderson in another weight class.
Of course, going from humble beginnings to a two-division champion came with money, fame, women, and lots of illicit substances. Unfortunately for the “Mystic Mac,” he indulged in more and more vices and began to build up a negative reputation faster than he gained his initial fame.
In a recent interview, Liam Neeson was asked about the Irish celebrity, to which he replied: “That little goblin Conor McGregor, he gives Ireland a bad name. I know he’s fit and I admire him for that. But I can’t take it.”
Why is Liam Neeson so mad at Conor McGregor?
Where do we even start? The multiweight fighter was never known to watch his mouth when verbally attacking others. At one point, his friend Artem Lobov was beaten by UFC legend Khabib “The Eagle” Nurmagomedov. In retaliation, McGregor decided to attack a UFC bus with his fellow thugs.
The worst thing is that “Notorious” was humiliated in his fight against Khabib and recently his so-called “friend” decided to file a lawsuit against him. He is also currently in deep water for beating up a woman on his yacht.
