The ‘Notorious’ Conor McGregor is widely known for his flamboyant personality and his fights in and outside the octagon. Although, being out of action for more than a year since his heinous leg break in his fight against Dustin Poirier, hasn’t stopped him from voicing his opinions.
The Irish Supernova took to Twitter to address his opinions on ‘spitting’ and ‘snot rockets’ during fights in the octagon. McGregor stated that he was repulsed by how ‘disgusting’ of a habit it is for fighters to expectorate amidst the fights. Also further stating how these ‘habits’ must cost the fighters, a deduction of points for the match.
This tweet was in reference to the Luke Rockhold vs Paulo Costa fight which took place on August 20, 2022, and the Michael Chandler vs Dustin Poirier fight which went down on November 12th of that same year. During these fights, the fighters would go on to blow their noses and smear their blood on each other.
“It’s a ridiculous habit some people have,” said McGregor. “It should be abolished via threat of point deduction” referring to how the UFC must sanction the fighters for these ‘habits’. Conor also added, “There should be no spitting or snot rockets permitted in the octagon whatsoever“.
