After a video came to light showing McGregor throwing a punch at an older man in a bar spat, the former two-division UFC champ made it clear that he wants to change his ways and stop being such a magnet for unwanted attention.
When asked about it by TMZ, Tyson sung McGregor’s praises and says he believes that he deserves the chance to prove he can change:
“Absolutely (he scan bounce back from this), he’s a wonderful person. He’s a really kind man. He’s going to get good karma for that. He earned it.”
McGregor hopes to return to the UFC Octagon before the end of the year.
