CONOR MCGREGOR’s head coach John Kavanagh was ‘miffed’ by the post-fight interview The Notorious gave after breaking his leg at UFC 264.
The Irishman snapped his left leg with just seconds remaining of the first round of his trilogy fight with Dustin Poirier, which was ruled a first-round TKO loss.
UFC commentator Joe Rogan interviewed the promotion’s poster boy as he laid against the cage with his leg in a splint, much to the frustration of SBG Ireland chief Kavanagh.
He told Laura Sanko: “I have my opinions on that. Like his foot is literally hanging down.”
“It’s a clean fracture of the fibula and tibia. It went straight through. His foot is hanging down.
“You can only imagine the rush of hormones and the pain, it was on fire.
“And then someone sits down and sticks a microphone under your face like, ‘How are you feeling right now?’…It’s like, ‘Guys, come on! Come on. Let’s get backstage and let’s get a proper assessment by a doctor, let’s get an X-ray.'”
“Let’s say I was pretty miffed at that idea of shoving a microphone in someone’s face at that stage. Let’s gather ourselves and let’s.
It’s like, ‘Guys, come on!’
John Kavanagh on Joe Rogan interviewing Conor McGregor after his leg break
“Anyways look, what’s happened has happened.”
McGregor, 33, was released from hospital last Wednesday after undergoing surgery three days earlier.
And a few days removed from the horrific break, he revealed he went into the Sin City series decider with a number of ‘stress fractures’.
In a six-minute-long Instagram video, he said: “The leg is better than ever.
“I was injured going into the fight. People are asking me, ‘When was the leg broke?
“At what point did the leg break?’ Ask Dana White, ask the UFC, ask Dr. Davidson, the head doctor of the UFC.

“They knew, I had stress fractures in my leg going into that cage.
“There was debate about pulling the thing out because I was sparring without shin pads and I would kick the knee a few times.
“So I had multiple stress fractures in the shin bone above the ankle and then I have trouble with the ankle anyway throughout the years of f***ing fighting all the time.”
