Conor Mcgregor’s Coach John Kavanagh Tells Ufc ‘all is Forgiven’ After Being Thrown Out of Arena
John Kavanagh is taking a calm approach to the slightly shambolic organization surrounding UFC 279.
Following Walker’s first-round victory over Ion Cutelaba, the Straight Blast Gym coach and the rest of their team were told to leave the backstage area immediately.
The problem appeared to be caused by a lack of space at Las Vegas’s T-Mobile Arena, where the event was held on Saturday night/Sunday morning.
But, while he understandably vented about the shoddy treatment in the aftermath, the Dubliner doesn’t appear to be holding any grudges over the bizarre incident.
This is largely due to Walker receiving the $50,000 performance of the night bonus.
John Kavanagh and Johnny Walker ‘kicked Out’ of Arena at Ufc 279, Dana White Responds
Johnny Walker, a light heavyweight contender, had a spectacular night at UFC 279. The 30-year-old Brazilian ended a two-fight losing streak with a first-round submission victory over Ion Cutelaba to kick off the main card.
But his night took a slightly unpleasant turn, at least according to his coach, John Kavanagh, who tweeted that they were forced out of the arena.
“So @ufc just came in and kicked us out. We were denied tickets and were not permitted to remain backstage to watch. “Pulled out the back door, kicked out, no shoes on,” Kavanagh wrote.
UFC president Dana White was later asked about it during the post-fight press conference and denied kicking Walker and his team out.
