Conor McGregor appears to mock Billy Joe Saunders after posting gruesome bloody Nate Diaz shot after horror eye injury

May 9, 2021

CONOR McGREGOR appears to have mocked Billy Joe Saunders after the British boxer's corner threw in the towel at the end of the eighth round of his fight against Saul 'Canelo' Alvarez.

The former WBO super-middleweight champion suffered a fractured orbital socket following an uppercut from Canelo, an injury which saw his right eye completely close up.

And Saunders' trainer Mark Tibbs decided to pull him out of the fight as a result, much to the disappointment of many boxing fans who had seen a thrilling fight up to that point.

UFC star McGregor had little sympathy – seemingly mocking Saunders with a picture of fellow MMA rival Nate Diaz.

The image was a bloodied shot of Diaz from UFC 202 when he and McGregor went to war for a second time.

Diaz's right eye was almost entirely closed but he fought on for the five rounds, only to lose to the Irishman on the scorecards.

Saunders has been criticised by many after what he said about Daniel Dubois in December re-emerged in haunting fashion.

The Brit had been vocal in slamming Dubois when the heavyweight took a knee and was stopped by Joe Joyce after suffering a broken orbital bone towards the end of last year.

Speaking about Dubois, Saunders told DAZN: “Fighters get in that ring and we know what’s on the line.

“Every fighter needs to understand and the fans need to understand that. In the past, we’ve seen a lot of tragedies in boxing, deaths in the ring.

“Before I go on one knee I’d like to go out on my back with my pulse stopped.

“Everyone has their own thought process in the ring and what went on in the ring I don’t know. He obviously felt he could not continue.

“You look at the greats, the eyes, the face, we get through that. That’s the path in life we choose for a living. We punch people in the face and get punched in the face.

“If my two eye sockets were broken, my jaw was broken, my teeth were out, my nose was smashed, my brain was beaten, I was not stopping until I was knocked out or worse.

“I don’t agree with a man taking the knee and letting the ref count him out.”
