BeltEdit

How can one have a BJJ black belt and then be mentioned later having a brown belt only... so which is it? 108.168.108.221 (talk) 03:49, 4 January 2015 (UTC)

British?Edit

According to the BBC McGregor is British, from the "United Kingdom and Republic of Ireland" (http://media.balls.ie/uploads/2015/07/12200708/bbc1a.jpg). Will we change it now that we have a "reliable source"? We can change it back to Irish when he loses a fight as I'm sure the BBC will give us a reference for that then. 188.141.10.11 (talk) 18:35, 13 July 2015 (UTC)

_________________

This article should include a segment on McGregor's critics regarding two points of contention:

1. Critics contend that Conor McGregor is/was protected from facing higher caliber fighters in the run up to the title fight with Aldo. [1]This criticism was amplified after McGregor was booked to face Dennis Siver, but it has been somewhat tempered by his match with Chad Mendes, who was the most recent title contender, and has a reputation as a fighter of respectable skill. [2]

2. Critics, most notably Wanderlei Silva, contend that Conor McGregor's fights show evidence of match fixing. [3][4]Critics point to his opponents' seemingly inexplicable errors and lapses in judgment, coupled with quick referee stoppages and circumstantial evidence of the UFC's financial interest in the outcomes of McGregor's fights. Critics point to three of McGregor's fights in particular: Brandao, Poirier, and Mendes.

Replays of the Brandao fight show Brandao abruptly refusing to engage offensively, backing up with his hands down, then falling down in a prone position. In the finishing sequence, Brandao can be seen blocking nearly all of McGregor's punches with his exposed palms, but not attempting to stand or otherwise defend himself.[5]

Replays of the Poirier fight show Poirier falling to his knees after McGregor missed with a punch. As in the Brandao fight, Poirier seemed to abruptly cease meaningful offense and defense. After Poirier fell to his knees, all but two of McGregor's follow up punches can be seen to clearly miss the face of Poirier.[6]

In his fight with Chad Mendes, a clearly slower McGregor was on the receiving end of striking exchanges for a majority of the fight, and was taken down on multiple occasions. In several instances, Mendes appeared to have a fight-ending position (e.g. McGregor's arms pinned and face exposed), only to relinquish the positions voluntarily. Despite not having cardiovascular issues in previous fights, Mendes appeared to feign exhaustion after the first round. In the final sequence, Mendes relinquished a guillotine submission attempt and let McGregor stand up, and thereafter stood with his hands down until McGregor landed a combination of punches. referee Herb Dean, who has also faced criticism for his officiating of the fight, stopped the fight almost immediately.[7][8]

The UFC has not addressed these critics specifically, but has previously denied all allegations of match fixing.[9]

If you're serious (and you typed enough to make me think you are), most of that is unusable synthesis. You'd need reputable critics to analyze these fights and come to the same conclusions, not just point to fight coverage and then to a bunch of nuts on Twitter. Even if they aren't as nutty as the Bleacher Report article makes them out to be, they're still just riff-raff. Everyone has opinions.
In my opinion, what happened to those poor boys was what happens to many fighters who realize they're outmatched while also getting hit very hard and mocked: they crumble. Break. Give up. Whatever you want to call it. McGregor just says that's what'll happen, loudly, before he does it, so it gets more attention than when the polite, quiet sort do it. You ever really look at a Demian Maia opponent's eyes after 12 minutes of helplessness? Same deal, just slower.
Wanderlei's complaint might be notable, though. He's something of an expert. InedibleHulk (talk) 08:11, July 29, 2015 (UTC)
I dont think Wand is what Wikipedia would consider a reliable source :D There would be POV issues due to his ban by Nevada Comission and his legal action against them and the UFC Dimspace (talk) 21:57, 28 November 2015 (UTC)


I find it hard to believe you are serious. Unfortunately wikipedia is not a source for Reddit-esq debate, it is for encyclopedic, factual information, not gossip. Also, you reference all of your outlandish claims, but not a single source has even an iota of reference to what you are talking about.

LeinsterLad (talk) 21:45, 05 December 2015 (UTC)

The fact of the matter is McGregor has crumbled the uncrumblable and Demian Maia's opponent's eyes showed emotion for the first time. It sure wasn't joy. And it sure wasn't predetermined. By bookers, anyway. InedibleHulk (talk) 06:37, December 13, 2015 (UTC)

Style shouldn't include BJJEdit

Per the norm with MMA fighters, style should indicate his general preference, not just disciplines he has learned. Otherwise, Royce Gracie should have Muay Thai listed as well, for example. --140.32.16.52 (talk) 04:44, 2 September 2015 (UTC)

Aldo Fight KOEdit

The McGregor Aldo fight at UFC 196 was called via knockout not TKO. It's listed as a KO (Punch) at sherdog.com [1] and Bruce Buffer called it as being a knockout on the night. It should be changed. Marz8ar (talk) 16:23, 3 March 2016 (UTC)

As source was added at the bottom of the table, two actually, one for Aldo and Mendes. Aldos from the "STATE OF NEVADA DEPARTMENT OF BUSINESS AND INDUSTRY ATHLETIC COMMISSION" as is on the pdf, by TKO. There is a difference in the sources, I would personally call it a KO, the State Commission call it a TKO, I dont know why. Murry1975 (talk) 16:51, 3 March 2016 (UTC)
The source given, claiming that it was a TKO, also erroneously lists Anderson vs Weidman 1 as a TKO, to give one example. http://boxing.nv.gov/uploadedFiles/boxingnvgov/content/results/MMA/2013/07-06-13MMA.pdf Whoever is changing the result to TKO, please stop removing factual content. Let's not be emotional about this. NerdNinja9 (talk) 00:56, 5 March 2016 (UTC)
Cites moved inline. , "erroneously"? It is the actual fight regulator. Murry1975 (talk) 16:36, 7 March 2016 (UTC)
But it's not infallible, and not an independent, secondary source. That's what Wikipedia prefers. And of course, the video is quite clear. InedibleHulk (talk) 02:08, March 8, 2016 (UTC)
They are the sanctioning committee. What they declare is the official record. Any disputes with the record need to be taken to the athletic commission. Anybody else's opinion is ultimately irrelevant. It's akin to changing a fighters record because you don't like a judges decision. The sanctioning commission is the only relevant record. Frankie edgar 32 (talk) 21:54, 18 March 2016 (UTC)
They're a sanctioning committee, responsible for fighters and promoters in Nevada. Wikipedia is a global encyclopedia, with its own rules and regulations. In our world, they're just a primary source making an exceptional claim, contrary to global mainstream sources and all of our own eyes. So we either find exceptional sources for the claim, or we disregard it. InedibleHulk (talk) 08:34, April 21, 2016 (UTC)

Nate Diaz fightEdit

"he was taken down several times"? Diaz never took him down and never attempted to. McGregor tried to take himm down after getting rocked,but Diaz sprawled and went on top. Please correct that.--93.57.255.136 (talk) 20:17, 6 March 2016 (UTC) 7

Retirement rumoursEdit

A single tweet that its fairly vague is not a verifiable source as far as "McGregor has retired" goes. If something official comes from the camp or the UFC then yes, but random tweets are not wikipedia sources. If we use that logic, CM Punk, Nate Diaz, and various others have also confirmed their retirements on twitter today Dimspace (talk) 20:46, 19 April 2016 (UTC)

"I have decided to retire young", is not "I have retired", agree until something concert comes out we should be, well, encyclopedic. Just sayin'.... Murry1975 (talk) 20:57, 19 April 2016 (UTC)
Agree. I have added a line saying that he sparked rumours of retirement but nothing confirmed. Hopefully seeing that will dissuade people from repeated editing Dimspace (talk) 21:02, 19 April 2016 (UTC)
This is definitely still too much up in the air. We're in no hurry as we are not a news source. We can wait for something definitive from him or as the stories begin piling up on the news sites and there still isn't official word from him then I guess we can mention it. But for now it feels too much like original research to assume anything from that text. SQGibbon (talk) 00:24, 20 April 2016 (UTC)
I think the way we have it at the moment is fine, at the very least we want to be careful not to convey inaccurate information by stating that he's going fight Diaz in July. Mark Arsten (talk) 00:41, 20 April 2016 (UTC)
We mentioned that the fight has been cancelled as that announcement was an official. The retirement one still feels way too much like speculation and giving too much credence to a vague tweet. It doesn't feel encylcopedic to even mention it at this stage. But I'm not going to press the point. The whole thing will probably be clarified in a day or two. SQGibbon (talk) 00:51, 20 April 2016 (UTC)
As it stands is perfect. States the fight with Diaz is off, which has been officially announced, but anything beyond that is speculative. Looks good as it is until something actually happens officially Dimspace (talk) 16:53, 20 April 2016 (UTC)

Well since there has been many speculation about this I've decided to share what I've gathered

Conor McGregor refused to promote UFC 200 this weekend in Las Vegas, according to Dana White, which caused Dana to cancel the McGregor/Diaz fight at 200. I'm assuming that's what triggered McGregor's retirement. Seems to be him being frustrated at the UFC and Dana White, especially, and decided to retire because he knows what a big blow that'd be. -Zach(MMA Fighter) Jose13Noh (talk) 23:08, 20 April 2016 (UTC)

Connor McGregor's Opinions on Free Trade, Global Warming, Gay Marriage and Deficit SpendingEdit

There is a clear consensus that the content should be removed per WP:UNDUE and rationale put forward by FactsAndHonesty & SQGibbon. The relevant action was taken by Meters. ★☆ DUCKISJAMMMY☆★ 23:35, 19 December 2016 (UTC)
The following discussion is closed. Please do not modify it. Subsequent comments should be made on the appropriate discussion page. No further edits should be made to this discussion.

Bottom line, the inclusion of McGregor's opinions on gay marriage are irrelevant. Whether or not it has a credible source doesn't change the fact that it utterly fails to live up to the guidelines set out on wp:trivia. If McGregor was a longstanding and proactive LGBT advocate and it was actually a relevant component to his life, then maybe it might be a worthwhile addition but making a passing comment on a social issue is absolutely not worthy of inclusion. The problem with allowing this sort of thing to persist (and has been argued in detail on other articles) is that biographies of living persons then devolve into issue-signaling devices, where ideologues who fall on either side of some social or political issue are quick to enrich articles with agenda driven 'content' that is otherwise irrelevant to the individual in question but serves to further their desire to prove that someone famous agrees with them. This doesn't even begin to withstand wp:trivia, it has been reverted and I'd encourage mediation. If the standard is that this sort of thing *IS* acceptable, then beware; you're opening a huge can of worms. FactsAndHonesty (talk) 17:46, 10 December 2016 (UTC)

It seems to be reliably sourced and it has been in the article for many months. There is no question of a BLP issue with the content, so repeatedly removing this without consensus on the talk page to do so is edit warring. Per WP:BRD this should have been discussed on the talk page before removing it the second time. let alone the third time, and the content should remain n the article while consensus is being reached. I will restore it pending the outcome of this discussion.
The edit summary with FactsAndHonesty's initial removal [4] mentioned WP:NOTABILITY and minor trivia as reasons for deleting it. WP:NOTABILITY only deals with whether topics are notable enough to warrant an article, and explicitly states that it does not apply to article content. See WP:NOTEWORTHY.
As for the suggestion that WP:TRIVIA requires that this material be removed, the guideline deals with lists of miscellaneous trivia, which is not what we are dealing with. It is a public statement by a notable person on a contentious issue. I don't believe the information is trivia at all, but it certainly is not the "list of miscellaneous information" that the guideline applies to. As with WP:NOTABILITY, this guideline seems to have been misunderstood. It explicitly states that it does not apply to article content: This guideline does not suggest the inclusion or exclusion of any information; it only gives style recommendations. Issues of inclusion are addressed by content policies.
The suggestion that Mediation be used to resolve this is extremely premature. There has been no talk page discussion (let alone the "extensive talk page discussion" required before any formal dispute resolution. Meters (talk) 21:53, 10 December 2016 (UTC)
My initially citing WP:Notability was in error- I was thinking WP:Undue- but lets not go down the turgid road of arguing semantics and punctuation over actual substance. The brave, new standard you're proposing we accept for this article is not realistic, lest any comment anyone ever makes via any reliable source be considered magically worthy of inclusion into their article. So pick WP:Undue or WP:Trivia, plain reading of their intent, a passing comment Connor McGregor made on gay marriage is absolutely not noteworthy enough for inclusion. You can make whatever tortured interpretations and narratives you wish but I rest my case on the blindingly obvious, plain reading of WP:Trivia and WP:Undue, which speak directly to adding things like passing quotes on social issues for which the party in question is otherwise not a relevant player. I really don't see how we escape mediation on this, as there is no 'middle ground' on the inclusion of trivia or giving undue weight to a passing quote OTHER than to delete it, which is what you're trying to rationalize against doing. FactsAndHonesty (talk) 02:49, 11 December 2016 (UTC)
@FactsAndHonesty: it seems you have misinterpreted BRD. You were bold in removing the content, and yes bold includes removal of content not just additions or alterations (see how to proceed), then @AffeL: reverted. You correctly started this discussion, but only after you removed the content again & then a third time incorrectly accusing @Meters: of violating policy when it was in fact you who violated policy. Therefore the content should remain until a consensus is reached. As for the permanent inclusion of the content, I'm unfortunately somewhat on the fence. However, I've notified the relevant WikiProjects so hopefully there will be a little more input & a clear consensus can be reached. If edit warring persists, I will request full page protection, then warn & ultimately report flouting users. ★☆ DUCKISJAMMMY☆★ 00:11, 11 December 2016 (UTC)
It's WP:UNDUE, whether it's sourced or not. As you say, if he were really known for being an activist for an issue the way Ronda is known for body image stuff I might think there's reason for inclusion. That's not the case, so it doesn't belong. Chris Troutman (talk) 00:17, 11 December 2016 (UTC)
I personally don't care whether this is in the article or not, but I still have not seen a valid justification for removing it. WP:Notability and WP:Trivia explicitly state that they do not apply to article content. User:FactsAndHonesty can insist all he or she likes that wp:trivia applies, but as the quote above shows, it clearly does not. It is simply not a content policy.
I'm not convinced that WP:UNDUE rules out the inclusion of this information either. How does it apply? Most of wp:undue is concerned with not giving undue weight to minority views in articles, but that is not what we are considering here. We are simply reporting a sourced, public statement made by a notable person. It's not an extraordinary claim or a minority view. It does not "give undue weight to the view of a significant minority, or [to] include that of a tiny minority".it's simply what an article's subject said about a particular topic. We could consider the WP:PROPORTION portion of Undue, but I don't see it as a problem. His country had a referendum on a controversial subject. He made a statement on the subject, and we simply mention what he said. It would be difficult to report this with any less detail or weight than we have done. Is the argument that it should not be included at all because he is a fighter and we should not mention his public opinion about anything that is not fighting related? That line of reasoning would rule out an extraordinary amount of material in other articles about notable people... political affiliations of non-politicians and statements about humanitarian issues by actors, for example. Meters (talk) 03:50, 11 December 2016 (UTC)
The operative point is that it doesn't warrant inclusion at all because it violates WP:Trivia and WP:Undue on its face (irrespective of whatever tortured narratives you wish to create about how otherwise plain policies somehow don't apply in this case). The fact that it is appropriately sourced is not in dispute, you keep reflexively citing that as though it's somehow relevant. It is not. It is indeed credibly sourced but it is trivia at best and absolutely wp:undue by any rational measure. Ultimately, though, since you personally don't care whether it's left in or not, that makes you one neutral vote, one other neutral vote and two against, so far. Lets stay focused on the facts FactsAndHonesty (talk) 03:59, 11 December 2016 (UTC)
I'm not a neutral vote (I have no personal stake in whether it is in the article, but I think it should remain), and this is not a vote in any case. This is a discussion of whether Wikipedia policies and guidelines justify the removal of the material. Refusing to accept that wp:trivia does not apply does help your position. Please provide reasons supported by policy and guidelines why this material should be removed. This is looking like a case of I WP:IDONTLIKEIT. Meters (talk) 04:08, 11 December 2016 (UTC)
I've struck the mention of Free Trade, Global Warming, and Deficit Spending from this thread's header. There is no mention of these topics in the material being discussed. Meters (talk) 05:18, 11 December 2016 (UTC)
  • Remove, per WP:UNDUE. The statement is not a significant part of McGregor's personal life. FactsAndHonesty's original post sums up the situation perfectly, and dismissing the argument as IDONTLIKEIT because he fails to cite chapter and verse on policy is tendentious. Scolaire (talk) 12:30, 11 December 2016 (UTC)
  • Remove as per WP:UNDUE. This was one comment. We do not include every single thing we can possibly include in articles just because there's a reliable source backing them up. If he were notable as an LGBTQ activist or if his comments created some kind of media stir that itself became notable then inclusion would make sense. But as of now it was a statement that doesn't seem to have any real significance toward an encyclopedic understanding of the subject. We are not Wikia where we want every single little possible nugget of information included on a subject. We want our readers to get a general understanding of the subject. Had he received death threats or major newspaper wrote op-eds about him because of this then that might be different. As it stands it does not warrant inclusion as argued convincingly above. SQGibbon (talk) 14:57, 11 December 2016 (UTC)
  • Remove I think the strongest point is what SQGibbon pointed out, that this was just a one-off comment. My thoughts were the same: if the comment were relevant to something that is a large part of his life, and therefore served as some kind of summation or reasoning for a component of the subject's life that was worthy of its own section in the article—that would be one thing. Or if the statement ended up becoming notable itself for some reason (e.g. he received professional reprimand, or someone filed a lawsuit against him, and he ended up making a public statement, etc.)...that would be another reason such a thing might be included. But at this point, Conor McGregor's views on gay marriage are no more relevant to a biographical encyclopedia article on him than are his opinions on a particular sports team. He could have easily been quoted in Time Magazine as saying he was a huge Boston Red Sox fan. If that doesn't qualify as unencyclopedic trivia, I don't know what does. The fact that such a comment is printed in a major publication is not a reason it should be included in Wikipedia. --Wikisian (talk) 23:55, 17 December 2016 (UTC)
I've removed it again. Thanks for the discussion. Meters (talk) 00:11, 18 December 2016 (UTC)

Fluent in IrishEdit

He was taught it at school, like many schoolchildren are taught French. But he struggled with it in interviews.

Semi-protected edit request on 14 November 2017Edit

MMA hiatus and boxing endeavours After winning the lightweight championship at UFC 205, McGregor announced he would take time off from the UFC to wait for the birth of his first child due in 2017.[148] McGregor would spend the majority of his public appearances in early-2017 campaigning for a boxing match with Floyd Mayweather.[149] After months of negotiations, the two finally came to terms on 14 June 2017 and announced the match to take place on 26 August.[150] The match ultimately ended in the 10th round with a victory by TKO for Mayweather.[16] On 10 November, McGregor appeared at Bellator 187, where he congratulated victorious SBG Ireland teammate Charlie Ward and confronted referee Marc Goddard.[151] McGregor's next scheduled fight against Tony Ferguson at Bellator 219 was reportedly pulled due to McGregor's unacceptable behaviour at Bellator 187.[152]

Conor's fight was pulled from UFC 219 not Bellator 219. Conor is signed to the UFC, so cannot fight for Bellator. Also, it was not certain that he was on this card, so it is best to say 'allegedly' he was set to fight. 81.104.73.140 (talk) 20:25, 14 November 2017 (UTC)

  Done I corrected Bellator 219 → UFC 219 and tried to reword the statement about the rumored Ferguson fight in line with the source already provided. Thanks, —KuyaBriBriTalk 21:07, 14 November 2017 (UTC)

McGregor racially-charged remarksEdit

Edit: these changes have been approved.

https://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Conor_McGregor&oldid=815141409#Controversies

I made some additions to the "Controversies" section that were removed for not being constructive. However, McGregor's racially-charged remarks are discussed widely among fans, media, and MMA community at large. They are more widely known and probably more controversial than his incident at Bellator 187, but that remains on the page. These remarks are a large part of his story and his trash-talking persona. They are a huge factor in why he is so polarizing among MMA die-hards and casual fans. I have followed MMA and McGregor for many years so I have context to these remarks, and my edits were neutral and relevant. I'd like to discuss why they should be included on his page- thanks.

Here are the full changes- the above link doesn't capture everything, as it was reverted before I was finished. — Preceding unsigned comment added by X2o (talkcontribs) 03:28, 14 December 2017 (UTC)

Yes, should allegations of racist be added to the article? See here. Anna Frodesiak (talk) 04:51, 28 February 2018 (UTC)

  • I have added it myself. I find it shocking that since the editor raised the concern last year - 2018, their edits were removed in an attempt to keep it off the page. Terrible! I've added a section for his racial antics over the years. That section can be expanded as per our policies..Tamsier (talk) 03:57, 16 January 2019 (UTC)

Further ControversiesEdit

McGregor has being involved in several controversies since returning to Ireland,here are a couple that seem to have not gotten much international media attention.

Alleged fight with a man associated with the Kinahan cartel.[1] Speeding charge.[2]

There have been other instances involving cheating on his wife but they seem a lot less credible. I feel the wiki page does not reflect his current character very well.

Silence about Scottish heritage?Edit

Shouldn't this article have some mention of Conor's Scottish heritage? The article has very little about his background and, after all, people will surely wonder why he has a Scottish name. He has in the past expressed his personal pride about his Scottish and Clan MacGregor ancestry.[5] [6] Also, surely the [[Category:Irish people of Scottish descent]] should be added to the bottom of the article, as in analogous articles? 89.241.187.26 (talk) 11:58, 24 June 2018 (UTC)

McGregor TUF stint inaccuracyEdit

McGregor then took part in UFC's reality television series The Ultimate Fighter where he would coach against Urijah Faber. This "U.S. vs. Europe" installment of the show was the first time that the coaches would not fight against each other at the show's conclusion.[88] Faber's team member Ryan Hall ended up winning the competition.

The text in bold is incorrect. The Ultimate Fighter season 2 had two coaches (Matt Hughes and Rich Franklin) that were not expected to fight each other at the season's conclusion, as both coaches competed in different weight classes. I know it isn't a huge deal, but it should be corrected in order to be accurate. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Woodsgrady (talkcontribs) 06:29, 5 October 2018 (UTC)

Paulie MalignaggiEdit

Conor has pretty much engulfed Paulie Malignaggi, I have not seen and interview with Paulie where he doesn't refer to Conor and how bitter he is about the sparring session that took place for the Mayweather fight - I feel this should be referred to in the main article.

The upcoming Lobov vs Malignaggi has basically come to fruition on the back of the ill-feeling from the Mayweather sparring session.
