MMA combatants turn strategically violent upon stepping into the Octagon to seize their prized belts. But this Conor McGregor put out his and allegedly attacked a UFC bus on April 5 where women’s strawweight champion Rose Namajunas boards.
The Conor McGregor Attack that Led Namajunas into the State of Paranoia
The former two-division UFC champion’s dumb and possible felonious act that injured several fighters inside the bus. Lightweight Michael Chiesa and flyweight Ray Borg were both forced to withdraw from their respective UFC 223 bouts for obtaining cuts.
Conor’s attack left a lot of people damaged, including Namajunas who still gets haunted by the frantic assault. Two days ago, the strawweight star revealed that she is taking therapy following what happened while she’s inside the bus.
On her interview with ESPN’s Ariel Helwani’s MMA Show, Namajunas explained how she felt about it.:
“No, man. When we got back home, we stayed upstairs, locked in our room because we were just paranoid about how crazy the week was. It was really tough.”
“I’m still trying not to leave the house too much or there will be times when I’m just like, ‘Yeah we should just go home,’ like I just have a weird feeling. I live in a very nice neighborhood, there’s nothing that really goes on around here. So, for me to be like sketch. … I’m still paranoid about everything. I have a therapist that I go see,”
“It said, ‘I’m sorry for what happened,’ and then it was like, but then he immediately went on to like justifying what he did and stuff like that and the reasons why he did it. That to me was like, it really doesn’t matter. I don’t care what beef he’s got with who. That’s none of my business, I don’t need to know that information. Do you know what I mean? That doesn’t do anything for me.”
“So there was an apology and I’m a pretty cool person and I always accept apologies, but to me, I’m like a personal person, I like face to face. That’s how I like to handle things. I feel like i can work anything out, you just gotta talk through it as adults.”
“Yeah, I said ‘f— that,’ I said call Pat [Barry]. I just put Pat’s phone number and said, ‘f— that’ to whatever your message is and call him.”
