Owen Roddy has been a part of SBG Ireland for over a decade now, but that time with the team has come to an end because Roddy has decided to start his own team.
The former SGB Ireland coach would reveal the news via Instagram:
End of an Era. After 15 years of fighting and coaching I'm officially finished working in @sbgireland. Just want to thank everyone for all the amazing memories. I have loved every minute of it . Thanks to all my students for the gifts and to my coach @coach_kavanagh for the lovely plaque. Time to focus on my guys @sbgcharlestown. #cheers #coachowenroddy #coachroddyvlog #sbgcharlestown #UFC #MMA #dublinmma #boxing #bjj #K1 #MuayThai #wrestling #fitness #selfdefence #gymshark #Gymsharktrain #onehitmanagement #shadowfightgoods
Roddy worked with many fighters during his time at SBG Ireland, but the biggest is easily former two division UFC champion Conor McGregor. Roddy served as McGregor’s striking coach for the majority of his career and most recently at UFC 229. Roddy went 11-4-0 as a professional MMA fighter, winning the Cage Contenders Bantamweight Title before retiring in 2012.
