CONOR MCGREGOR’S sparring partner has hit back at Rita Ora after she stirred speculation that she and the Irish fighter were getting up close and personal.
The singer posted a picture on social media of the pair at the Fashion Awards alongside the caption “date night.”
Conor McGregor has a long-term partner in Dee Devlin and a young son. It sent fans into a frenzy with both Ora and McGregor in relationships.
But fellow MMA fighter and McGregor’s sparring partner Artem Lobov has appeared to put the record straight in a brutal twitter post.
Replying to Ora’s tweet, he wrote: “Sorry Rita, Burgers are nice but not when a man has steak at home.”
McGregor, 29, has been dating girlfriend Dee Devlin for more than eight years and recently had a baby together, Conor Jack McGregor.
Unsurprisingly, Lobov’s response has attracted praise with many applauding the Russian for backing up McGregor.
One fan said: “Artem you savage hero” as another simply wrote: “Take a bow mate. Take a bow.”
Others replied with hilarious gifs to suggest that Lobov had settled the debate including actor Bryan Cranston dropping a mic.
McGregor fans were quick to label Ora “disrespectful” for uploading the images of the pair.

One wrote: “major disrespect to his girlfriend”, while another added: “A little too cosy Ms Ora.”
A third agreed, tweeting: “Seriously disrespectful to his partner and mother of his child.”
One fan was also on the same wavelength at Lobov when they wrote: “You’ve got a fine Irish steal at home mate. No need to ruin it with McDonald’s.”

He then stayed at the venue until 6am before heading back to his hotel with 10 friends and a mystery women.

NATE DIAZ could be nearing towards completing the trilogy against Conor McGregor after being spotted in an MMA gym.
The 32-year-old hasn’t fought inside the Octagon since losing to the Irishman back in August 2016, but was training at his brother’s studio in Stockton.
And the former winner of the Ultimate Fighter could be back inside the steel cage next month to face UFC welterweight champion Tyron Woodley.
According to Woodley, a match-up between the pair is in line to take place at UFC 219 at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas on December 30.
All that needs to happen is for the southpaw star to sign his end of his contract, but so far the challenger has been quiet… until now.
Diaz is currently struggling with a reported shoulder injury, but his presence at the Nick Diaz Academy has left people believing he is edging towards a title shot.
Speaking on TMZ’s ‘The Hollywood Beatdown,’ Woodley said: “I’m fired up about people who tell you don’t be scared homie, and then they scared homie.
“It’s not a possible fight, it’s a 50 percent completed fight.
“You’ve got one half of the party that’s been offered, that accepted, and then you’ve got the other side (Diaz) that’s got a whole bunch of excuses. That’s kinda what I’m fired up about.”
A win for Diaz could potentially set up a huge third clash against ‘The Notorious’ with both fighters winning one bout each.
