We're calling it now. Conor McGregor is going to put a fierce amount of strain on numerous marriages throughout the country before he finishes up his UFC career. 

We can only assume that there are plenty of women throughout the country that are getting increasingly fed up with their husbands' bi-annual trips to Vegas to follow McGregor's UFC exploits. One such woman, Maria Barnes, has decided enough is enough and has put her foot down over husband John's desire to go to McGregor's Lightweight Championship Title fight against Rafael dos Anjos in March.

But John is not going to give up without a fight. He's set up a Facebook page in order to drum up support for his cause and has so far gotten videos from the likes of Jason Byrne, Owen Roddy and Al Foran to plead his case.

John has also set up a GoFundMe Page to help him get over there. He's promising to find a sponsor that will match the amount raised and donate the sum to Temple Street Children's Hospital. 

Well John we can't fault your creativity, but we're not sure how well this whole campaign is going to go down with Maria. A suitable compromise is surely the way forward?


If John gets to Vegas Maria will get to Harry Potter studios. It's all about negotiations. What do you all think?
