I held him down and beat the s**t out of him... Conor McGregor's coach John Kavanagh recalls rage after UFC star floored Aisling Daly in first session
Conor McGregor is a man unaccustomed to being humbled but in a startling anecdote told by his coach John Kavanagh, the fighter was for once on the receiving end.
To set the scene, a young McGregor who has previously received boxing training, entered Kavanagh's gym for the first time.
He wanted to test himself and started by flooring Owen Roddy, one of Kavanagh's best prospects, before going onto spar with female fighter Aisling Daly, now in the UFC herself.
