    A tweet was sent out saying that Jordan Burroughs was flown over to Ireland to help Conor McGregor train to fight Khabib Nurmagomedov. The original tweet was posted by the same account that reported that Mayweather was KO'd during sparring leading up to the May Mac fight. The account has since been suspended.



    FloCombat then posted 2 follow up posts to deny these rumors.




    As of now, Burroughs seems focus on his own tournaments. It seems to be unlikely that he joins McGregor's camp to assist in his preparations.

    Similar posts were made in 2016 by Ali Abdelaziz through Frankie Edgar's account. These claims were also shown to be false by Burroughs' wife.

    Jordan got a taste of Conor's power double and went back to 'Murica.

    It doesn't matter one way or the other if Khabib gets his hands on Mcnugget he's cooked.

    Hahaha Conor dweebs got their hopes up.


    It’s wrestlefuck ave for Conor. Don’t get your hopes up too high. Khabib has more momentum going in this. Nobody has been able to figure him out yet in mma and give him his first loss. Conor has been figured out multiple times.

    Damn thats a let down. I felt like that couldve made the fight more interesting. Having one on one private sessions with jordan burroughs several days a week for a couple months would improve any ones wrestling game a lot.

    Yeah but Conor has been pretty clear about being "loyal to his own camp" and not outsourcing all that much. He may still find someone to bring in but chances are he sticks with Danis and saves the money.

    One cool thing is that Khabib has trained with Ed Ruth. I'm not sure if he is being brought in for this camp as well but that would be a big help for Khabib's open mat TDs.

    Why does this same fake rumor get brought up every few years?

    A whole lot of outrage at the fake news of UFC paying for Conor's training partners, as if they have to. Use some common sense next time Sherbros. The Twitter account was obviously a troll.

    As if Conor needs Jordan. lmao Jordan needs Conor.

    Plenty of other wrestlers have offered their services. Even the better Jordan, Jordan Oliver is begging Conor!

    To give people context in a clear and understandable way. I like to make stuff like this common knowledge so fake rumors don't get spread. I didn't see anyone posting these, so I went ahead and provided the update.

    Why does every post I make bother you? I provided info about a rumor and you still found something stupid to complain about. Would you also like to complain about the color of my text?

    Also, *you're
