Smells like roids to me unless he asked for more cash and is playing hardball with Dana and thr UFC and isnt playing around. All in.

If it was injury why wouldnt they just say he tore up his knee bad?

Mean to tell me he said all this i will be back. I hold head high in defeat. I want it at 170. Enjoy your moment nate........just to decide to retire.

Actualky everyone should apologize to old fan. I thought he was getting goofy but mcnugget is perfect for the little lad.

They turn into panic wtestlers......you did in the funniest way possible.

They are brittle and back out.....so did you kn the biggest card ever.

Good fighter and businessman but a goofball to the fullest.

Marcus Davis is the real Irish hero!

Also rumours he was hardballing over his image rights. Maybe he wasnt lying and he wants to go it alone amd promote himself.

Could be anything at this point but it sure as sh*t isnt cos he wasn't going to attend a presser.

This is craziness.

He's going to try to make a union, yup... that must be what he's doing. With the guy that died, Conor figures he coulda lived if he was treated better. That and his friends were injured before he even fought in the UFC. Conor's going to push healthcare for all the fighters and saying f you to Dana, big middle finger.

Told Dana to get the whole thing fixed or he's out. That's why he pulled from all the pressers, it's obviously a relationship fracture. They passive aggressively stripped him of his title implicating it's not an injury. It's the eye of the hurricane, there's a shitstorm coming.

Where does it say they took his belt?

You're always wrong!

Meh, I don't even care. I'll worry about fights I actually want to see.

-This fight was ridiculous anyways.
-He should have already been stripped of the title before this news.

Nothing lost in my book, in fact I gain an extra fight for UFC 200 & will likely buy the PPV now.

Someone retires a day after Tax Day, I don't think he's running from a steroid test, he's running from the IRS.

Source: Conor McGregor wants approx $10M for #UFC200--more than anyone else in past for single fight. #UFC said no, so he retired.

So really Conor can still be at 200 if UFC shows him the money. It looks to be a power struggle with zero, 1, or 2 bluffs in play.

Not sure im buying the pay shtick either. If that was the case UFC would wait a few days until tickets go on sale before pulling him. That would make sense.

Jonnyg liked your comment. He likes this because you agreed that not attending a press conference equals steroids.


Now, off the top...which MMA fighter got reprimanded for not attending a press conference before?

Nah this whole situation is just bonkers. No legit sources to anything other than McGregor is legit intending to retire and is out of 200. No clue what to even think about this. When I wake up tomorrow I expect some insanity.
