UFC fighter Conor McGregor has been making headlines for the wrong reasons, turning himself over to the authorities after he caused a brawl that damaged UFC property and injured one fighter. McGregor hasn't stepped into the Octagon in a year and a half. If he's going to be this out of control, he doesn't deserve the privilege of fighting in the league. Still, everyone deserves a second chance and if Jon Jones can fight in the UFC, so can McGregor. What do you think? 👊

McGregor was stripped of the lightweight title after failing to defend it in a year and a half. He did not take it well. Soon after, Khabib Nurmagomedov, who was scheduled to fight at UFC 223, got into a heated confrontation with McGregor's training partner and good friend Artem Lobov. This may have been the catalyst that caused McGregor to go on a rampage at the UFC 223 press conference by throwing objects at a UFC bus transporting Nurmagomedov and other fighters. 

When the dust finally settled, UFC fighter Michael Chiesa was hospitalized with lacerations from the broken glass, and three fights were canceled. Should McGregor get a lifetime ban or given a second chance?

Talk about being hostile in the workplace. There is no excuse for McGregor. He is out of control and deserves to be locked away. Heck, McGregor doesn't even want to be in the UFC if he sat on his lightweight title belt for a year and a half without defending it. 

If McGregor doesn't want to take part in the sport anymore, the UFC should just do him a favor and make the choice for him. McGregor needs to be banned for life.

Everyone makes mistakes. McGregor is neither the first nor last person to ever go a little crazy with violence. He probably did the UFC a favor and hyped up a great fight between him and Khabib Nurmagomedov in the future. 

UFC president Dana White won't be so mad when he's lining his pockets with the cash McGregor made him. If Jon Jones got a second chance to redeem himself, there is no way McGregor doesn't get one. Fine him and suspend him, just don't ban him for life.
