Recently Conor McGregor’s team released a video of him sparring former boxing champ Chris van Heerden, and the latter wasn’t happy with how the footage was cut. But, after the South African fighter criticized McGregor’s camp of editing the vid to only show the Irish star’s best moments, van Heerden has apologized.
According to a follow up report from MMA Fighting.com, van Heerden tweeted out “When you have to cut & edit a video clip to look good, it shows me you real character #isleeppeaceful #DoYou?”
The tweet, however, was subsequently deleted, and van Heerden posted the following apology:
After a Good Sleep you all made me think!! I Apologize for my Tweets should have kept it to myself Conor .M did me a Fav in the End #Sorry

It will be interesting to see what comes out of this, if anything. After initial footage of the two sparring was posted several weeks ago, van Heerden claimed he had video which “would probably shock” fans. He also said that the footage showed “who is the professional boxer” and who isn’t.
