Fans think Conor McGregor has gone a ‘step too far’ with new jumper

Conor McGregor is a man used to courting controversy, but fans think he has finally gone a 'step too far' – because of a new jumper.

Whether it's from calling out opponents or posting his opinion on social media, The Notorious is never far away from the limelight.

It's fair to say UFC fans have forgiven McGregor a lot over the years, but the star's new jumper has them siding against the Irishman.

McGregor, who is still on the comeback trail after his horror leg break against Dustin Poirier last July, posted the offending garment on Instagram for the world to see.

To the bemusement of his followers, McGregor uploaded a picture of himself in a mirror wearing a fluffy pink jumper, apparently from Prada.

Captioned: "Who’s that ? who’s gives a f***! @prada @theblackforgeinn," the picture went down like a lead balloon with the fighter's millions of fans.

One user commented: "That's a step too far that."

Another added: "Making my skin itch just looking at it."

While a third made reference to Pokemon and said: "All that money and you look like Jigglypuff!"

Someone else urged: "Bro delete this."

Others joked that the jumper must have been bought from Penneys – the Irish version of Primark.

McGregor's head coach, John Kavanagh expects a summer return for the fighter who is continuing with his recovery after that horror injury sustained against Poirier.

"We’re not back to MMA training yet, but he can do all the strength and conditioning, and he’s being sensible about the approach of it,” Kavanagh told MMA Junkie last month.

"I do a little bit of talks at local schools in Dublin and I will always use him as an example of what we can do in life when we get setbacks.

"There’s nobody that comes back better than him. There’s nobody that uses losses to fuel themselves to learn new things about their body, to learn new things about training, and come back and do very well."

McGregor recently demanded a fight with lightweight champion Charles Oliveira after the Brazilian successfully defended his title against Poirier in December.

Just days after the fight, McGregor posted on Twitter: "So what date am I fighting Oliveira?"
