Conor McGregor is not only a talented sportsman but also a showman and a real moneymaker. The sportsman knows a secret that allows monetizing any scandal he takes part in. McGregor is recognizable and popular even among those who have never been interested in sports.
The sportsman has repeatedly told he had an army of loyal fans and friends in Ireland. However, taking into consideration the reaction of Irish media on the sportsman’s latest loss, his ‘loyal’ fans are always ready to smack McGregor’s fails.
Some Irish newspapers criticized the sport itself, questioning if MMA can ever become properly organized and controlled. Others concentrated on McGregor’s loss, calling the event ‘the biggest shame’ of the sportsman. Many journalists laughed at Conor’s wish to have a second chance and to organize a rematch right after his obvious loss.
In any case, the reaction of Irish press was unexpectedly aggressive. And surprisingly, authors of numerous articles turned their negativism against the sportsman from their homeland.
Some internet users tried to explain it with an irritation that was caused be often eccentric behavior of Conor McGregor. However, others try to connect such a wave of negativism with the failed direct Bellator translation that was interrupted with kids’ cartoon.
