McGregor had some harsh words for Woods in the past. ‘The Notorious One’ had mocked Woods for his DUI arrest. In 2017, Tiger Woods was arrested after he fell asleep at the wheel of a running Mercedes car in Jupiter, Florida. According to police reports, the golf legend was speaking in a slurry manner and did not know his whereabouts.
A toxicology report had revealed that Woods took three different pain-killers and a sleep drug. Traces of THC were also found in his system, which implies marijuana usage. The golfer pleaded guilty to the charge of reckless driving. He also agreed to undergo a 12-month probation diversionary program for first-time offenders and pay a $250 fine.
Conor McGregor has been away from action after he suffered a horrendous injury against Dustin Poirier last year. He is training heavily as he is gearing up for his UFC comeback. He is eyeing for a UFC welterweight title fight against champion Kamaru Usman. In an interview with The Mac Life, ‘Notorious’ spoke on his current muscle frame, weight, and potential return as a welterweight. He said:
“I feel confident against Usman. [He’s] a jab-happy, sloppy orthodox wrestler with no submissions whatsoever. What’s he gonna do? Where’s the danger here?”
