No way. They don't want to deal with all those people pissed off because they paid for Conor and the find out the UFC knew they were pulling him.

Think. It Ain't Illegal Yet

These are all power moves imo. Whether it is as simple as Conor not wanting to do the press is anyones guess.

Pretty cool to see somebody stand up to them even if it is for the wrong reasons. Used to love the diaz bros. when they did it too. Rampage randy etc etc were all not as big as Conor. Would love to see him go to bellator and take ppl with him so these fighters can finally get the sponsorship money they deserve for their head trauma

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.
90% of your posts you seem to refer3nce me.

Im not flattered be it coming from you.

All one big promotional stunt. I bet he still fights on the card or at the very least one right after.

If Conor retires he'll be the only MMA fighter in history to go out while they held a belt & were in their prime.

I hope he has bigger and better things lined up. That would be cool.

Conor was supposed to be in the new Vin Diesel Triple X movie but I think he turned it down and they casted Michael Bisping to play a role. Maybe Conor can have a future doing movies?

I think Conor's just burned out. The way he's lived his life over the past few years is like working 7 day weeks for 2 years. He never takes days off, as far as I know. A person can only do that for so long.


Hard work is the only real PED.

It only took 6 pages but here we are with the conor excuses.

Poor conor. Riding around in private jets. Getting fit with 10000 suits. Jigging mobs of hot women.

Poor Conor....he must have worked himself silly.

That Nate Diaz tho. Hes only been at it for like 13 years straight, training every day like an athlete just about. He should be fresh and ready for 5 more years!

Retire from not wanting to fight their asses off with mo push from the ufc for peanuts compared to what Conor makes.

Vs.

You suggested retire because 2 years of interviews and riding in jets is just too much.


My new theory is they hust knew he would lose to Nate again and yanked it. Waiting for edgar or aldo at MSG and time to allow Conor to get into 145lb size.

Jonnyg is acting like a 14 year old boy who just hit his first fingerbang.

Pace yourself, son, there's more to life.

Would be a shame not to see Conor fight again but he has the money he wanted so why not?

If you are trying to say im excited over the news then younare delusional.

There is no one on this forum who wanted to see Nate stop Conor again at UFC 200 than me.
