Through the past year, McGregor has made way more headlines for things like million dollar sex watches and troubling allegations than fighting. It’s hard to stay at a championship level as a fighter when your focus isn’t 100 percent on the sport.
Will he learn his lesson and either invest in MMA the way he did earlier in his career? The answer to that question will determine how he ultimately bounces back from this embarrassing loss.
