McGregor's social media post was met with controversy from the left who accused him of not knowing "the definition of the world leader." The Twitter user replied to McGregor's post saying, "You may be my favorite fighter of all time but no, man, Putin is not a great leader. Unless you consider leading by fear and murder is considered great. Then yeah I guess he's great at murder."
