Just 6 hours ago, ‘The Notorious’ Conor McGregor announced his retirement from MMA and the UFC. The news came as a shock to near enough everyone seeing as how often he talked about fighting again since his Khabib loss. However, hours before announcing this he was talking about fighting again…
As we waited with bated breath for Conor McGregor to finish his six-month ban from the infamous UFC 229 post-fight brawl. Making him able to fight in April of 2019.
There has been so much talk on who McGregor will fight next and when he’s going to fight next. He gave us the answers in an interview on the Jimmy Fallon Show…
“I’m Eager To Fight”
Conor Was on the Jimmy Fallon show last night and of course, there were questions about fighting asked. He gave us a reply that in hindsight does not make much sense seeing he then retired hours later.
Before any of this happened McGregor was in talks to fight Donald Cerrone, Nate Diaz, even the winner of Poirier and Holloway that takes place at UFC 236. He had so many options for his next fight and he knew this too.
Watch the video from The Jimmy Fallon Show…
“My next fight, we’re in talks for July,”
“We’re in talks for July so we’ll see what happens. A lot of politics going on. The fight game is a mad game but as I said again, to my fans I am in shape and I am ready.
“There are many opponents. In reality, I can pick who I please.”
“I’ve done a lot, I’ve fought a lot, I never pull out of contests, I’ve gone through some crazy injuries and crazy external situations that many a man would sprint for the hills if it happened to them,” McGregor said. “I stood firm and done my piece for the company so I am in a position now like this whiskey is my baby, I’ve got a lot of great entities.
“I don’t necessarily need to fight. I am set for life, my family is set for life, we are good. But I am eager to fight so we’ll see what happens. I’m just staying ready as I like to say.”
