Conor McGregor is a 'sorry excuse for a human', says Georges St-Pierre's head coach

Conor McGregor's actions from four months ago continue to cause a storm in not only the MMA world, but in the worldwide media.

Since it was made public that McGregor assaulted an elderly man in a pub back in his native Ireland, the 'Notorious' has become just that, and is clearly now public enemy number one.

McGregor conducted an interview with MMA journalist Ariel Helwani this week on ESPN, where he expressed complete regret for the incident and accepted full responsibility and will accept whatever punishments come his way.

We haven't seen McGregor inside the Octagon since his infamous battle in October 2018 with Khabib Nurmagomedov, and despite announcing his 'retirement' earlier this year, the Irishman told Helwani that he will 'never retire'.

Until he returns to the sport though, his actions will continue to be talked about, and the coach of multi-time world champion Canadian Georges St-Pierre has fired shots at McGregor this week - and he's not the only one.

Firas Zahabi, the head coach of the Tristar gym that GSP trains at, lambasted McGregor in a video uploaded to YouTube for his reprehensible actions.

“I don’t care what anybody says, it is indefensible," said Zahabi, per MMA Mania.

“There is no defense to this except that this guy is a pathetic, sorry excuse for a human being. What a disgusting display.

I don’t care how much money you have. I don’t care how famous you are in the world. If this is the type of person you are, your value is zero. Your value is zero.

“This is an embarrassment to MMA, an embarrassment to us all.

“When the media or people from other sports say MMA people are animals, they’re savage, they’re violent, they’re the barbarians of sports, it’s going to be harder for us to defend.”

“I’m sure 99% of all Irish people who saw that are disgusted. He probably thought nobody was filming. We know that when nobody’s looking, McGregor will do the most disgusting acts. Those are his true colors. It’s just purely disgusting. I could not be more disappointed.”

It will be interesting to see if McGregor responds to these comments considering he's already had a spat with Zahabi in 2019.

After Zahabi picked Max Holloway as the winner in a potential fight between the Hawaiian and McGregor, Conor responded by calling Zahabi a 'twerp' and to shut his pie as he only 'rents dorms and hits clocks for a living'.

Zahabi's main man GSP announced his retirement in February, but who wouldn't love to see McGregor and St-Pierre go at it?
