Michael Bisping has a theory on Conor McGregor’s bizarre behaviour!
Michael Bisping has a theory on why Conor McGregor has been lashing out in bizarre ways lately.
“The Notorious” McGregor is without a shadow of a doubt the greatest star MMA has ever produced. However, recently he’s had somewhat of a fall from grace in the eyes of fans. His previous quick wit and light-hearted charm has been replaced by a surprising bitterness, despite his financial success.
The Irishman broke his leg in the trilogy against bitter rival Dustin Poirier last year. As he sat with his back against the octagon, cradling his broken leg, he was interviewed by Joe Rogan, and proceeded to hurl abuse and threats at both Poirier and his wife and daughter. Since then, he’s been busy recovering; however, that hasn’t stopped McGregor from challenging both fighters and non-fighters on social media.
Lately, he’s honed in on TikTok star Hasbulla Magomedov, good friend of McGregor’s most hated enemy Khabib Nurmagomedov. In a series of bizarre messages McGregor has also threatened former UFC middle weight champion and current commentator Bisping, after the latter’s warning to the Irishman that he shouldn’t “talk shit” about him.
“Bisping you’ll do fuck all you little sprinter, I’ll cave your head in,” McGregor told Bisping on Twitter. “S*** fighter, s*** actor.”
“Ya’s’ll see when ya’s see me. … Who’ll do what and who’ll need what. We will see.”
“Do you want to go to war, man, yeah? Do you want to go to fucking war? We’ll go to war with you, yeah?” McGregor whispered in a threatening voice note. “Security… You little sausage of a thing. I’ll have security set you up … when you’re in Vegas again, pal. … Keep my name out of your fucking mouth again or any type of threatening behavior, or I’ll walk through your front door. … You little dope. (Go) back where you belong you little clown, you little sprinter.”

Michael Bisping psychoanalyses “lonely” Conor McGregor!
During an episode of his podcast, “Believe You Me,” Bisping theorised on what he thought was the root cause of McGregor’s behaviour as of late. It must be lonely at the top, he believes.
“The level of fame that (Conor McGregor) reached is astronomical and it’s very, very rare,” Bisping said. “You’re talking about big-time A-listers. There’s a lot of people at that level, but to achieve it is fucking very rare… I know a few people like that. They do get lonely. They can’t go anywhere, they can’t trust people, so I don’t know if that’s the case with him or whatever… He doesn’t have a community, (but) he’s still got tons of fans – you can’t deny that.”
McGregor has hinted at a comeback for quite a while now, and hopes to compete for UFC gold once he finally graces the octagon again. At the moment, it seems likely that he’ll return in welterweight, despite lightweight and featherweight being the divisions where he’s had most success throughout his career.
Whether he makes a comeback at all remains to be seen. Currently, the UFC star has his hands full with his upcoming Hollywood debut. McGregor has landed a leading role in Amazon Studios’s remake of the iconic movie “Road House,” alongside Hollywood superstar Jake Gyllenhaal.
