How Conor McGregor Show humanity to the MMA Fighter

The boots, worn by McGregor in the lead up to his bout with Floyd Mayweather in 2017, were put up for auction on Christmas Eve and will be available for bidding up until January 11.

The proceeds from the auction will be donated to Ian Coughlan, an MMA fighter who was left paralysed during the summer following a horrific accident during training.

He was considered one of the most exciting prospects in Ireland and was preparing for his return to the cage after making his Bellator debut when he was paralysed during a sparring session.

Coughlan spent three months in Galway University Hospital following the accident in July 2021 and was later transferred to the National Rehabilitation Hospital in Dun Laoghaire. He is still undergoing various forms of therapy here.

His “worst fears” came true when he was told that he may never walk again, and would be reliant on carers to assist him with his daily tasks.

While therapists are preparing him for life in a wheelchair, “Ian is not giving up without a fight”, a GoFundMe page set up for him says.

On December 28, an update was posted on the page which said: “We would like to extend our gratitude to all our donors, including Conor McGregor, for helping us reach our initial goal for Ian’s treatment.

“We have since learned that Ian’s treatment costs have increased due to COVID as the hospitals in Germany are no longer offering inpatient services; this means that Ian will need to find alternative accommodation and hire private healthcare assistants whilst in Germany.

“We are thankful that you have helped us reach our goal, but we would greatly appreciate further donations to help with Ian’s medical upkeep whilst in Germany.

“We thank you for all your kind support.”

McGregor’s boots are currently at £1000, with 12 days to go

Charles Leclerc’s anger with Ferrari while ‘Checo’ Pérez escaped him: “Stop talking to me

Charles Leclerc did not finish the race in Singapore in the best way. He started from pole and ‘Checo’ Pérez passed him at the start. After the safety car caused by Yuki Tsunoda, the Ferrari driver was very close to the Mexican, but could not overtake him on a circuit where it is difficult to do so. After several laps of pursuit, the Monegasque ended up moving away from Pérez, which caused a radio situation that caused him anger.

It was known that the Red Bull would be investigated after the race for not respecting the distance with the safety car. Faced with a possible five-second penalty, the team asked him to push:

“The distance with Pérez is 2.4 seconds. We need to be five seconds behind Pérez.” But Red Bull warned its driver to increase the pace and thus ensure victory in case of a penalty. When Ferrari notified Leclerc of this, the Monegasque replied to his engineer with a forceful “stop talking to me”.

Finally, the FIA ​​did penalize Pérez with five seconds and a reprimand, but the Mexican lengthened the distance with Leclerc by more than seven seconds, so he still won the race.

Fresh reports indicate Red Bull and Max Verstappen won’t be…

New reports have come to light that Red Bull may have committed a minor breach of the financial regulations last year, rather than a material one.

Formula 1’s first budget cap was introduced last year, and it stood at $145 million for the teams to spend on their cars.

There are three categories of breach of the financial regulations, one of which being procedural, whereby a team may fail to submit paperwork, or submits It late.

Williams were fined for this by the FIA earlier on in 2022, and reports came to light last week suggesting that Aston Martin and Red Bull might have overspent last year.

Overspending is split into two more categories – minor and material – and there were suggestions that the Austrian side may have gone over by as much as $10 million.

This would constitute a material breach, as the threshold is five percent, and such a contravention would leave them at risk of one of the harsher penalties.

Among those punishments is an exclusion from the world championship in question which, in this instance, is that of last year.

There was speculation during last weekend’s Singapore Grand Prix weekend that Max Verstappen was in danger of losing his world title to Sir Lewis Hamilton.

However, a report from Sportsmail now suggests that the Milton Keynes-based outfit did go over the limit, but not my more than five percent.

Red Bull boss, Christian Horner, was outraged by the accusations being aimed at his team, mainly by Ferrari and Mercedes, and he is thought to be considering legal action against what he feels are “defamatory” comments.

Red Bull insist that they did everything by the book.

Certificates of compliance will be handed out on Wednesday, at which point we will know who stayed within the budget cap in 2021.

Carlos Sainz aims subtle dig at those who ‘didn’t want him’ challenging Charles Leclerc

Carlos Sainz has aimed a subtle dig at doubters who criticised him for fighting Charles Leclerc at Ferrari. Sainz said there was a section of fans who “didn’t want him” fighting Leclerc after finding form in the middle of the campaign.

The Spaniard struggled over the opening races, crashing out of the Australia and Emilia Romagna Grand Prix. But, he turned things around in the middle of the campaign with P2 finishes in Monaco and Canada.

He also secured his first career win at an action-packed British Grand Prix at Silverstone. However, Sainz stresses it was “frustrating” to be moaned at despite giving his best in the opening part of the season and then criticised again when things went well.

He said: “I can understand that after the first few races, Charles (Leclerc) was clearly one step ahead in both qualifying and race pace. But in the middle of the season, I improved a lot. Yeah, I started getting into the fight more and it was kind of frustrating in a way, because when I got into the fight it seemed like some people didn’t want me there.

“I was criticised for not being there, and when I started being there, some wondered what I was doing up front, letting Charles win everything. It was frustrating, especially from the press. They criticise me, but just when I was there, fighting, they don’t want me in front of me anymore.

“You saw that I do not pay much attention to what is said out there.” Questions have been asked all season whether Ferrari would implement team orders to help Leclerc’s title bid.

Ferrari has never intervened in the pair’s on-track battle but this has led to Leclerc dropping some points. The Scuderia’s decision not to get involved ultimately cost Leclerc a potential race win at Silverstone.
