Conor McGregor became the center of issues after expressing his desire to retire in the UFC. But many people don’t believe that the featherweight champion will leave the MMA world for good and they feel that McGregor will still fight Nate Diaz at UFC 200.
Though White admitted that he did not believe McGregor’s retirement, he was already making a plan B for the upcoming UFC 200.
“That’s the thing. Conor needs to clear up this whole retirement thing and clear it up fast because if he’s retired, then at UFC 200 Jose Aldo and Frankie Edgar are fighting for the vacant title.”
There must be something behind McGregor’s tweet since Nate Diaz also tweeted that he would retire too. It is possible that the two fighters and the UFC management are planning something that could shock the MMA world in the main event of UFC 200.
McGregor had been reportedly training in preparation for his rematch with Diaz so there’s no way that he would let that chance of taking revenge slip away and let his featherweight belt wrapped to another fighters’ waist that easily.
On a report at Sky Sports, Conor McGregor vowed to build the UFC into a billion-dollar business wherein he said in a press conference that he was very confident that he would be the man to break the billion-dollar barrier for the UFC.
“One hundred per cent. I am that man. I am THE man,” he told reporters.
“If you look at the analytics, the evidence, the numbers are all going up. All the channels, all the platforms, the numbers continue to rise.”
So, how could such a man who threw such words, retiring from his highly beloved sports? There might be something that would shock the MMA world on the upcoming UFC 200.
Also, in a report at Yahoo Sports, UFC President Dana White also expressed his opinion saying that even him does not think that the featherweight champion is retiring.
One thing is sure, the MMA world will be in tremble on the upcoming UFC 200 and there is a high possibility that Conor McGregor will show up to prove himself once again.
