Journalist describes horror of six-hour period without Conor McGregor news


Saying that he just feels lucky to have come out the other side with only minor psychological damage, a sports journalist has today described the horror he was subjected to during a six-hour spell without any fresh news on Conor McGregor.

Just hours after the UFC announced a rematch between McGregor and American fighter Nate Diaz at UFC 200, journalist Harry Davies expressed his relief at the end of the torturous 360-minute period without news, pictures or videos of the Irishman.

“They say everyone goes through one truly traumatic experience in their life and after these last few hours, I can only assume this is mine,” said the 24-year-old multimedia journalist and social media manager, adding that at one point the website for which he works had little more than 200 live McGregor pieces. “It was terrifying.”

“I kept looking and even did my usual thing of copying other people’s McGregor stories. But, to my horror, I had already copied those very stories last week. I’d never felt greater fear.”

At press time, a delighted Davies had produced more than 32 articles based on a series of three quotes by the mixed martial artist.
