Conor McGregor seriously has quite a great confidence in himself. Conor McGregor is one of the most popular faces of UFC after Ronda Rousey.
Clearly, the aura and popularity has gone to his head now. In what is seen as sending a strong message to UFC, Conor McGregor took to Twitter yesterday and boasted of his name and fame.
“My name will forever reign,” McGregor posted on Twitter.
The Irishman’s rant comes after UFC President Dana White announced that Conor is officially out of UFC 200. White also stated that Conor will fight this summer shortly after UFC 200.
And now it looks like the 27-year-old featherweight champion is not too happy with White’s statements. White’s statement comes after Conor sent out a tweet that he is fighting at UFC 200.
Conor McGregor was dropped from UFC 200 after he refused to promote his fight against Nate Diaz. In a lengthy Facebook statement, McGregor stated that he is paid to fight and not to promote.
Unfortunately now, McGregor is forced to watch from the sidelines as UFC 200 moves on without him. The center stage once reserved for him has now being given to Jon Jones and Daniel Cormier who will headline the July 9 event.
McGregor’s Twitter message clearly sends out the signal that UFC 200 will forever remain incomplete with him. The controversy related to McGregor and UFC 200 has reached to such levels that McGregor’s name even echoed during Wednesday’s UFC 200 press conference.
McGregor clearly is taking an aim at the UFC 200 promotion. Earlier he retweeted a message about the money UFC 200 will generate without him.
Although Dana White has been denying of any rifts with McGregor, clearly the recent activities of both of them give a different picture.
