The Notorious tries to console Lobov after the Russian lost a featherweight clash against Andre Fili out in Poland

But things didn’t pan out as McGregor wanted, as Lobov fell to a unanimous points defeat to Fili.

As McGregor consoled Lobov backstage, he appears to use the vile term ‘f****t’ three times.

McGregor, speaking to the defeated Polish fighter says in a grainy footage: “He was f****t, everyone knew he was a f****t.”

He then uses the slur one more time before the two UFC stars disappear behind a curtain.

The Sun has contacted UFC for comment. It is unclear who McGregor was directing the comments towards.

McGregor was his usual animated self during the fight, even having to be warned by the referee to calm down.

Sadly, his coaching from outside the cage didn’t end up helping his mate Lobov.

And it’s not the first time that McGregor has been caught up in a homophobic storm – although the last time he was on the end of it.

Floyd Mayweather, in the lead-up to the pair’s boxing scrap, labelled McGregor “a f****t” and then accused the UFC star of calling black people “monkeys”.

UFC star McGregor appeared to use the term “dancing monkeys” in relation to an all-black gym from a scene in 1982 movie Rocky III.

Then the Mayweather fired the vile term at McGregor during their X-rated London press conference.

The Irishman denied making racial slurs but Mayweather insisted: “He totally disrespected black women. He called black people monkeys.

“He disrespected the mother of my daughter. I’m not gonna stoop that low.

“Some levels you just don’t cross.”

McGregor’s comments came on the New York leg of the worldwide tour to promote their £1BILLION Las Vegas super-fight on August 27.

Mayweather won by a 10th-round stoppage to move to 50 wins and no defeats as a professional. He then retired from the sport.
