Conor McGregor’s Jiu-Jitsu coach, Dillon Danis, has explained where the Irishman really was on the day the knock out rumours broke.
Last week, rumours swept across the internet claiming that the ‘Notorious’ Conor McGregor had been knocked out cold in sparring. As it transpired, the rumours were completely false and had been generated by an MMA Insider on Twitter being fed bad information.
Although the stories have essentially been wiped from existence at this point, the Irishman’s Jiu-Jitsu coach, Dillon Danis, has today explained just how ludicrous the rumour was on the exact day that it broke.
Speaking in an interview with Submission Radio, the Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu black belt explained how he actually found the knock out story to be humourous as McGregor wasn’t even in the gym that day.
“It was funny because that day was actually his rest day. He wasn’t even in the gym.
“It was a stupid rumour and it came out of nowhere and it really didn’t happen at all. Not even anything close to that happened. I don’t even know where that came from. It’s crazy; that was completely fake.”
Looks like McGregor’s coach John Kavanagh was right from the get go, you really shouldn’t believe everything you read on the internet.
Free tip – Just because its on the Internet doesn't mean its true 😂
