Conor Mcgregor’s name is buzzing in media with controversies from past several weeks. According to Irish crime reporter Paul Williams, McGregor’s life could be in danger after a brawl in the Black Forge Inn in south Dublin involving McGregor and a number of men connected to the Kinahan gang.
But Conor McGregor’s father Tony McGregor is not bothered by the reported threats on his son’s life. Other rumors have also circulated claiming Tony is currently meeting with the Kinahans, and that the cartel is asking for $1.4 million for the McGregor family’s safety. On Thursday, the elder McGregor gave his own reactions to the news when he spoke to The Irish Mirror outside his home in Lucan, Dublin.
“Thats all nonsense. Absolute nonsense. It’s an absolute nonsense story,” Tony said.
“Its grown legs and its getting that ridiculous – its become funny. We have nothing to fear here whatsoever. There’s no one after us for anything.
We’re a law-abiding family and we’ve stayed a law-abiding family.”
In light of the reported incident, Irish crime reporter Paul Williams stated that the UFC lightweight champion could be in danger and that Ireland’s police force Garda will be offering protection.
Tony McGregor, however, sees no point in doing so. He said:
“Guards have no reason to be in touch, why would they?”
“We’re all just settling down for Christmas now. I’ve just got the grandson’s presents in today, they just came in from America.
I’ll be wrapping them, putting them under the tree for the big day. That’s it.”
McGregor himself simply dismissed the rumors, while also daring those who are supposedly a threat to his life to:
“come and get him.”
