The video has not sat well with a lot of people, with many criticising the former champion's actions.

Former UFC fighter, Chael Sonnen, also commented on the video, saying that it was weird that McGregor was mixing sport with substance abuse, BloodyElbow reported.

“If you’re gonna be drunk Conor, you shouldn’t be drunk Conor in a mentor position over at the TUF house.
"They don’t need to see you that way. It doesn’t matter who the guy is, if he’s coaching you, he’s not one of you," he said.

Conor has yet to comment on the video and neither have the UFC released a statement about his actions.

Shaq believes in Conor

Conor McGregor has some big backup in his corner as he prepares for his return to the UFC, Sports Brief reported.

The Irish MMA star will make his highly anticipated return later this year as he takes on Michael Chandler.

While The Notorious already has a huge fan base eager to see him step foot in the Octagon once again, it doesn't get as big as the 7 ft 1 inch Shaquille O'Neal.

Chandler predicts knockout win

The mind games have already begun between Michael Chandler and Conor McGregor.

The two lightweights will square off in the Octagon later this year, and Chandler is already making predictions about the fight.

Chandler, referring to himself as Mystic Mike, predicted that he would finish the Irishman in round two, Sports Brief reported.
