Dana White Pulls Conor McGregor From UFC 200 Fight With Nate Diaz For Not Showing Up At Press Conference
Earlier today, the MMA world went nuts when Conor McGregor abruptly announced his retirement from MMA.
Many thought that Conor was just trolling but it seems like there’s some beef between UFC president Dana White and the UFC champion after the Irishman was a no show at a prefight press conference in Las Vegas.
Here’s what White said on SportsCenter
Obviously we still have a good relationship with Conor,” “I respect Conor as a fighter and I like him as a person. But you can’t decide not to show up to these things. You have to do it.”
White said McGregor didn’t want to come to the press conference, because he was in Iceland training and didn’t want to ruin his preparation for the fight with Nate Diaz on July 9 in Las Vegas. White added that only McGregor knows for sure if he is really retired.
McGregor has always tested Dana White’s authority but it seems like UFC president has had enough of his shit for now.
