The former UFC Double Champion Conor McGregor was in attendance when Ireland’s Sinead Kavanagh picked up a unanimous decision win over Leah McCourt at Bellator 275 on Friday in Dublin. Her Straight Blast Gym (SBG) Ireland teammate and UFC star McGregor joined in for the celebrations with her after the fight. ‘The Notorious One’ also made sure Sinead Kavanagh’s mother was by her side to celebrate her latest win.
Conor McGregor argued with security
Kavanagh’s mother was also at the venue and ‘The Notorious’ did not want her to miss the special moment. Moments after ‘KO’ was declared the winner, McGregor argued with event security who appeared to be stopping him from escorting Kavanagh’s mother off the stands.

Sinead has long been a friend to both McGregor and SBG founder John Kavanagh. McGregor has been a mentor of Sinead throughout her professional MMA career. Before the McGregor fight, the former UFC two-division champion also supported her in her Bellator featherweight title clash against Cris Cyborg last year.
Conor McGregor could be returning with a different style
Speaking to Keelin McNamara of LowKickMMA at the Bellator 275 event in Dublin, Ireland, McGregor spoke about his ongoing recovery from the leg injury he suffered last July. ‘Notorious’ said in this regard that he intends to create a blend/hybrid of his old Karate style with boxing and a few new additions.:
“I feel nice and strong for sure…It’s getting there. Day by day, you know, day by day. I’m advised to take it easy, but I feel…I’m shadowboxing a lot, and I’m figuring out what way, you know, I’m developing a style.”
We will have to see what McGregor brings to the table upon his return.
While it’s Justin Gaethje who it’s expected to face UFC lightweight champion, Charles Oliveira, wants to jump the line. The former UFC double champion gave Oliveira the following advice in a recent conversation with SevereMMA. Credit to MMA Fighting for the below.
“If your man’s wise, he might give it another month or two,” McGregor said. “July seems OK for me. I can’t say too early, but July, if I’m sparring in April, May, June, July — I could slap the head off of most of these guys at the end of April.”
