"I meant no disrespect to anybody in the LGBT community."

November 1st 2017

Conor McGregor has finally issued an apology after being caught on camera referring to another UFC fighter as a “f****t”.

The Dublin fighter appeared on RTE One’s The Late Late Show to promote his film with Universal Studios that launches next week, where he was asked about a clip that circulated after UFC Fight Night 118 last month.

Speaking on the video – which shows Conor referring to his teammate Artem Lobov’s opponent as a “f****t” – McGregor said he meant no offence to the LGBT community:

“I meant no disrespect to anybody in the LGBT community…I just have to say sorry for what I did and move on from it.”

McGregor also confirmed he’s in talks with UFC about a return to the Octagon.
