Conor McGregor is still broken up over the death of Portuguese MMA fighter Joao Carvalho, who died from injuries he sustained during a fight in Dublin back in April.  McGregor helped trained Carvalho’s opponent Charlie Ward, and was cageside during the fight.

“Damn, I still can’t believe that kid is dead,” said Conor McGregor.

Conor and Charlie had been working out together at the Straight Blast Gym in Ireland.

“It’s f****d up,” Conor said to Men’s Health magazine.  “I wasn’t just watching that fight. I helped train a guy to kill someone, and then someone wound up dying.”

“This is a f*****g dangerous game. People call it a sport, but it’s fighting. I’m just making sure it ain’t me. And that’s f****d up.”

McGregor says he hopes MMA officials and referees all over the world can learn from Joao’s death, to make sure something like this doesn’t happen to anyone else.
