McGregor Off UFC 200 Card; Retirement Status Still Unknown
Social media went into a frenzy when UFC featherweight champion Conor McGregor made an impromptu “retirement” announcement on twitter Tuesday morning.
Whether or not the retirement announcement is true remains to be seen but what is certain is McGregor won’t be fighting at UFC 200. Appearing on ESPN’s SportsCenter, UFC president Dana White said McGregor had been pulled from the card after refusing to travel to Las Vegas to appear at the press conference and film commercials and marketing spots.
McGregor is reportedly in Iceland training, presumably for the Diaz rematch, and didn’t want to break camp to travel to the Sin City.
