Conor McGregor is on damage control duty a month removed from his rampage in Brooklyn, New York in which he attacked a bus full of UFC fighters trying to get at Khabib Nurmagomedov.
As result of his meltdown, several fighters and UFC employees were injured, including Ray Borg and Michael Chiesa, who were both bounced from their respective fights against Brandon Moreno and Anthony Pettis as a result.
The first person to receive a personal apology from Conor was Rose Namajunas, who was on the bus at the time Conor threw a dolly through has window. Though, she was not injured, she was admittedly rattled from the ordeal ahead of her title fight against Joanna Jedrzejczyk.
“Thug Rose,” however, didn’t want any part of Conor’s remorse.
Now, Karolina Kowalkiewicz -- who defeated Felice Herrig at UFC 223 and was also on the bus -- reveals to MMA Flashback that she also received an apology from McGregor, and from the sound of it she appeared to be a bit more receptive than her fellow Strawweight.
“I saw Conor McGregor hitting the windows, then saw Rose Namajuans crying while Pat was protecting her face. Cheisa’s face was blood stained. My coaches told me to hide, but I wanted to see what was going on, but they kept me under the seats. And that’s all, in my opinion Conor bent a little, he probably realized what happened afterward and he wrote an apology letter to me. I have no intention of suing anyone. Growing up in LODZ I saw worse things.”
McGregor will head back to the scene of the crime later this year to answer for his transgressions in court. Once that matter is resolved, we will have a better understanding at what the future holds for Conor, as far as his combat career goes.
If things don’t go his way and UFC opts to drop the hammer, one of these two talented Lightweights will definitely be getting the first crack at dethroning “The Eagle.”
