UFC President Fires Back at McGregor

Details regarding Conor McGregor’s future in the Ultimate Fighting Championship have been revealed by Dana White. The UFC President clarified that the Irishman evoked minimal interest in competing after dominating over Donald “The Cowboy” Cerrone. This information was revealed on ESPN’s First Take, where Dana White announced that McGregor was provided with the opportunity to compete against Tony Ferguson at UFC 249. Conor declined the chance to amass the Interim Lightweight Championship Belt.

Tones of anger were heard from Dana White over media personnel falsely reporting the diagnostics of McGregor’s retirement. UFCs President clarified that McGregor informed executives he wouldn’t compete against Ferguson or Nurmagomedov, forcing the competition to offer Justin Gaethje this fight.

Online rumours suggested that Conor McGregor wasn’t prepared to compete against a large percentage of the UFC Roster. This follows after skillsets established by McGregor have been mastered by others & then enhanced over time. It’s been proven multiple times when Conor was overcome by Nate Diaz and Khabib Nurmagomedov. These rumours contest that Donald Cerrone was paid out $10 million to lose against Conor McGregor in January 2020, with it almost being statistically impossible for the Irishman to knock out an opponent in forty seconds. With these new details from Dana White coming to light, online rumours are appearing more realistic.

Dana White evoked that Conor McGregor informed the UFC immediately after his fight with Donald Cerrone that he’d retire. The UFC President hasn’t contacted McGregor since that conversation, with their business relationship has finally ended. It’s now suspected that Conor’s 3rd retirement from the Ultimate Fighting Championship will be permanent. One of the most notable MMA Competitors in UFC history has now hung his gloves for the final time.

New Blood

Conor McGregor’s retirement has been overshadowed by the popularity of Justin Gaethje. This young competitor has defeated the likes of Tony Ferguson, Donald Cerrone, and Michael Johnson. Supporters that once stood with the Irishman have moved towards Justin Gaethje, who is faster & more tactical. He’s also considerably more professional than Conor McGregor. Supporters can expect Dana White to focus on Justin “The Highlight” Gaethje more in the following years.
