Conor McGregor guilty of ‘cheapest shot’ during charity boxing match, opponent claims

CONOR MCGREGOR has been accused of dirty tactics during a recent appearance at a charity boxing match at his old gym.

The former two-time UFC champion made a surprise return to Crumlin Boxing Club in Dublin last weekend for an exhibition boxing match.

Held to raise money for the club as part of the annual “Good Friday Boxing Show”, McGregor’s appearance caught everyone off-guard – especially his opponent.

Facing off against amateur boxer Michael McGrane, the Notorious was put through his paces ahead of a potential UFC return – provided he comes out of retirement, of course.

But what was supposed to be an enjoyable occasion for all and one that raised important funds for a local boxing club ended on a sour note for McGrane.

According to the amateur star, McGregor not only began their fight not only with a “cheap shot” but the “cheapest shot” he’d ever caught in his life.

McGrane revealed all in an interview with TMZ.

"We touch gloves at the start of the fight, and you're meant to go back to your corner, but Conor never went back to his corner," McGrane said.

"Conor leaped at me with a left hook, the clinical left hooks, and he caught me flush in the eye with his clinical left hook."

"Yeah, it was a cheap shot. It was the cheapest shot I've ever caught in my life. Conor McGregor hit me with a cheap shot in his own hometown."
