As Conor McGregor returns to the octagon this Saturday for UFC 246, all eyes will be on the former champion who has been embroiled in out-of-the-ring issues. Since losing in an upset to Khabib Nurmagomedov in October 2018, McGregor has smashed a fan’s phone, beat up an older man in a bar and attacked the bus carrying Nurmagomedov. He retired in March last year, but that lasted only a few months before setting up the return to the ring against Donald ‘Cowboy’ Cerrone.
