McGregor’s word and scandal
“There was a debate about getting the thing out because I was sparring without shin guards and kicking my knee a couple of times.

What’s more; He added that “I also hit my ankle in every training session.”
The Dublin-born gave some more details about his workouts before the injury: “I even did a lot of training sessions when my ankle hurt, I still hadn’t stopped training. I used to train on my back and that’s how I developed those ground shots and back shots. Finally he closed by saying that “Dustin got away from me when he was on top of me and he was landing upward kicks and elbows.”
