“Absolute scruff this thing is,” McGregor wrote in an Instagram story. “That’s full on staph infection all over his f—ing face. A full f—ing hole omg and it’s his second time to attempt to enter competition like this.
“WTF! Clean your mats,” McGregor concluded. “Wash yourself. F—ing go to the doctor! Scruff.”
McGregor claimed that Gastelum has a staph infection due to the hole on the side of his face. These infections are caused by bacteria gathering on your skin, it is very common amongst fighters due to the perspiration leftover on the mats.
This is why gyms undergo such a thorough cleaning routine in between sessions. Staph infections can also be contagious which is why McGregor scolded Gastelum for attempting to enter a competition with it.
