Michael Bisping gives his opinion on Conor McGregor’s latest criminal accusations.
‘The Notorious’ has been associated with various allegations and convicted crimes throughout his life, but a new accusation is arguably the worst yet. A former neighbor of McGregor’s was at a party on his yacht when the former UFC champion allegedly started harassing her and ultimately physically abused her, leading to the woman jumping off the boat for safety.

Bisping posted a reaction to the news on YouTube and had this to say:
“The reality is, it’s innocent until proven guilty. That is the world that we live in. Anybody can say anything, it doesn’t make it true. I am not defending Conor McGregor at all. I’m not in the business of doing that…”
‘The Count’ continued by saying:
“However, he’s very rich, he’s very famous, and there is ambulance chasers. There is people that go after money. McGregor, wherever he goes, much like Mike Tyson back in the day, there’s a lot of assholes. I’m not saying she is one. I’m not saying she’s an ambulance chaser. I’m not saying she’s making it all up, but I’m also not saying it’s true.”
Although McGregor is innocent until proven guilty, his long list of prior accusations and convictions seems to paint a different picture. Either the former UFC two-division champion needs to be humbled through the justice system, or he’s innocent and needs to surround himself with better people.

Michael Bisping wants to wait for a police investigation before jumping to conclusions
Michael Bisping made it very clear he’s not defending Conor McGregor or calling the woman a liar. With that said, Bisping believes he shouldn’t jump to conclusions about ‘The Notorious’ because of people who try to lie and get money. He had this to say during the same YouTube video:
“Either way, it’s not a good look. Certainly not a good look, but we’re gonna let justice run its course. Let the police do the investigation before we cast any judgment. The reality is, when you’re worth, god knows what he’s worth, people try to come after it.”’
McGregor last fought in July 2021, losing his second consecutive fight against Dustin Poirier. Since then, the 34-year-old has been recovering from a gruesome leg injury suffered against Poirier. The former two-division UFC champion is expected to make his Octagon return in 2023.
