Yesterday afternoon, Irish Mirror reported that a woman in Liverpool named Terri Murray is claiming that former UFC lightweight and featherweight champion Conor McGregor is the father of her one-year-old daughter Clodagh, and requesting he take a DNA test to clear the air one way or the other.
“I don’t want his money. I just want to prove he is Clodagh’s dad and I’m not lying,” Murray told Irish Mirror. “I’m still thinking I shouldn’t do this, it is wrong, It has got to the point, I’m living with my mum, on my own, with no job, with a baby, I’m struggling, it is harder than I thought it was.
“I really didn’t want to do this, I wish we could have sorted it out privately. I don’t know why he let it come to this.”
“I want my kid to have the best life and I know his money can help with that. If he gets that DNA test, I’ve said ‘You never have to speak to me again, you can walk away’.
“It is not fair and it can’t be left like this any longer.”
At present, these Conor McGregor reports are unconfirmed. Whatever the case, he doesn’t seem too stressed about it. In fact — unless his phrasing is completely coincidental — he even seems to be cracking jokes about the requested paternity test.
“The results are in,” he wrote on Facebook on Saturday morning. “It turns out we are actually horses. Giddy up.”
