Dana White, president of the UFCyou don’t see that Conor McGregor Compete for some time, which takes away all hope from your fans. In turn, he has regretted the financial difficulties caused by the COVID-19 pandemic, which has paralyzed sport in half the world. “I very much doubt that McGregor lower your selling price to fight. I have guys who are pushing me for more money right now. Apparently they don’t see the news and they know we are in a pandemic. That is not his problem, “was what he started saying.
A future fight of the Irish is a mystery for now. On the one hand, he has agreed to fight Anderson Silva; on the other, he also has options at lightweight, as he is looking forward to avenging his loss to Khabib Nurmagomedov. There is also talk of Gaethje, but the truth is that White has ruled out that McGregor compete on the ‘Isle of Struggle’ in the coming months. “Unless there is an absolute miracle and the world turns around in the next three months, which I don’t think will happen, I don’t know if Conor He will fight, ”he told reporters through MMA Junkie.
The truth is that, if anyone had any hope of seeing Conor McGregor compete once again in this 2020, you can practically forget about it. Although at the beginning of the year the Irishman expressed his desire to climb the octagon three times, Dana White has come out to reiterate once again that the first simultaneous double champion in the history of the UFC is retired. In this way, it is clear that the president has no viable options to enter the cage in the remainder of the season.
We will have to wait to see it in the cage
“This year, he’s retired. He doesn’t have a fight this year and he won’t have a fight this year, ”the promotion’s president told Bartsool Sports podcast My Mom’s Basement (via MMA Junkie). “Conor McGregor He is not going to fight in 2020, ”he later said, leaving many with more sadness than before. The Irishman announced what was his fourth “retirement” from MMA in June, failing to make fights against Justin Gaethje and Anderson Silva. While it sounds like a lie, it has held up very well for now.
Even if White does not deny that there are no plans for the ex-champion next year, he noted that the only fight that McGregor will have played in this 2020 was his TKO in forty seconds over Donald Cerrone. Thus, the one that took place at UFC 246 will be the last in a while. “I’m not saying no to fight in 2021, but I’m telling you, we don’t have a fight planned for him in 2021. I guarantee he won’t fight in 2020. Conor McGregor he is retired ”, closed the president.
