On Tuesday 19 April, a tweet by UFC Champ Conor Mcgregor has broken the internet. Leaving fans wondering if this is a hoax. Rumours are running wild, from his twitter account being hacked to a ploy by the fighters to get better pay checks at UFC 200. Some even suggesting he wanted $10m for UFC200 which the UFC could not agree to. One thing Conor has always said is get in, make money and get out…
The official report form Dana White and the UFC is that he didn’t want to come to Las Vegas and be part of any promotional training, White told ESPN. “He’s in Iceland training. He felt leaving right now would hurt his training. But every other fighter on the card is coming. It doesn’t make you exempt. We spend a lot of money on this stuff”
Safe to say Dana and the UFC are pissed.
