Conor McGregor’s Teammate Deletes Savage Tweet To Rita Ora About ‘Date Night’


Rita Ora unintentionally created quite the uproar when she posted photos of her ‘date night’ with Conor McGregor at the British Fashion Awards on Monday.

Thousands of people on social media made their opinions clear and Conor McGregor‘s SBG teammate and sparring partner Artem Lobov also went and got himself involved on Twitter.

And then deleted it.

Lobov tweeted:

Sorry Rita, Burgers are nice but not when a man has steak at home.

Rita’s tweet got fans hot under the collar due to the nature of the caption, ‘date night’.

They were quick off the mark to comment on the fact McGregor has been with his childhood sweetheart Dee Devlin for nine years and suggested Rita should have ‘more respect’.

Because I forgot, women aren’t allowed to sit at the same table as men in a purely platonic fashion, right?

Ally Rock wrote: ‘Wow, so much dislike for Rita! If my boyfriend got that close and personal with an excuse of a woman like Rita Ora after 9 years together and just after having his baby recently, I’d leave him at it! So much disrespect in one picture from both people!’

And @DricoMonster wondered whether Conor realised what he was doing at the British Fashion Awards last night.

Thanks for the concern, maybe he wanted to have some kind of social life, but that’s none of my business.

This is the sort of abuse Rita faced on Twitter:

Of course some people were able to see it for what it clearly was and defended the two stars:

Rita went on to perform a rendition of George Michael’s Freedom at the event while wearing a Versace designed printed catsuit.

Conor also shared his excitement to be wearing Versace clobber on social media, alongside Ora and Lewis Hamilton.

Rita and Conor continued partying until the early hours at the fashion event’s after party, sharing a story with her Instagram followers, and tagging McGregor, claiming they were the last ones standing.

Considering his antics after the Mayweather fight – and that Liverpool bender – this isn’t hard to imagine. He does know how to party.


Given Conor’s known devotion to his girlfriend, Dee Devlin, who he has been with since 2008, it’d be fairly out of the blue for him to be doing anything else elsewhere.

Conor and Dee, the 30-year-old Irishwoman who has been with Conor since before he stepped into an MMA ring, recently welcomed a bouncing baby boy, aptly named Conor Jack McGregor Junior.

To imply infidelity based on two Instagram stories is an insult to their close knit family, who are currently more concerned with showing baby Conor a good time for his first Christmas.

Rita also uploaded a photo of her sat with fashion legend Donatella Versace with the caption: ‘Last night with my real date.’

Ora and McGregor are yet to comment on the made-up scandal, and why should they?

Chill. Out.
