I bet they fucked him on some sort of payment if he's really retiring.

Or he got shook by Joao Carvalho dying.

I doubt with the lifestyle he leads that he actually has that much saved up. Not buying it.

I think he's trolling, will probably say he's going to retire at 35 which is still young when most retire at 65, etc. Or some shit like that.

I kinda hope he does retire though, to stick it to the UFC and create another avenue for fighters as a promoter.

Nah, he ain't no GOAT. He's a dude who talked a ton of shit and got mentally broken by a real legend on 10 days notice. Never defended his belt either.

As soon as people stopped talking about him, he throws this out there for attention when the real P4P GOAT is returning this weekend. He's an attention whore.

So true though. He ain't retiring unless he blew out his knee or got popped by USADA. It's all part of the mental warfare.

So, Dana was just on SportsCenter and said Conor has been pulled from UFC 200. Just watched it myself. So, yeah man.

This is also definitely over pay, some stuff is starting to trickle out about how Conor didn't want to go to a press conference and they pulled him themselves, there's also talk about him asking for more money and them telling him no, etc.

Awesome.

Lots of salt in this thread. The Diaz Bros are fuckin' legends. I don't think people appreciate how tough it is to be consistently relevant for over a decade like these dudes were. Conor didn't do it yet.

Nick tapped Gomi at 160 when he was the consensus best lightweight in the world. He KO'd Robbie at 170, which is impressive since that was the only time it's happened in over 35 fuckin' fights, many of which were wars against some heavy hitters at 170/185. Nate beat most of the guys they put in front of him, and they put a lot of good-really good fighters in front of him.

But while McGOAT has a padded record, he still KO'd Aldo and Mendes at the end of it all. You can't take that away from him. If he's smart enough to demand a lot of money and if he doesn't get it then to promote his own show, I'd support that 100%. I like that Mayweather is promoting a show too, bring some competition into this arena. That will increase fighter pay.

Someone said Dana pulled him from the card because Conor pulled a Nick Diaz and didn't want to the presser/promotional stuff.

Quote
“You can’t decide to not show up to the [promotional] events,” White said. “You have to do it.”

White said he had several conversations with McGregor over the past several days and reported that the fighter would not leave a training camp in Iceland for the press conference. After hours of haggling, White said, he told McGregor that the UFC had booked a seat for him on a 2pm flight. If he wasn’t on that plane he would be yanked from UFC 200. Not long after, McGregor tweeted his retirement.

“Is Conor retiring? Only Conor can answer that question,” White said. “But he’s not fighting in UFC 200.”

If anybody believes that the UFC is pulling their biggest draw from the biggest rematch in promotional history on their biggest card of all time over failing to attend a press conference then I've got some bridges for sale you might be interested in.

No way that Conor being off the card doesn't significantly impact the buyrate so I take Dana saying "If Conor called me today he could be on the card" as his very personal way of begging.

What I find interesting is that apparently Conor didn't deal with Dana, only Lorenzo. Wonder what changed?

Gerweck: One of UFC’s biggest box office fighters, Conor McGregor, announced his retirement in a simple tweet less than 140 characters. “I have decided to retire young. Thanks for the cheese. Catch ya’s later,” McGregor wrote. The big wrestling fan is now following Triple H, Shane McMahon, Stephanie McMahon, and fellow Irish Becky Lynch on Twitter, fueling speculations that he might be choosing to move to professional wrestling. The current UFC Featherweight champion was removed from UFC 200 after UFC President Dana White admitted that McGregor refused to attend press conferences, face the media, and participate in a commercial to promote UFC 200, UFC’s biggest pay-per-view. This could obviously be just a ploy from McGregor to get more money from the UFC or just a way to hype up his eventual return to the Octagon down the line, resulting in a bigger payout. Former WWE champion CM Punk who is now with the UFC decided to have some fun with the situation. “Well f*ck it, I have decided to retire old. Thanks for the shoes @Reebok,” he wrote.

Conor responds with a Facebook post

--------

I am just trying to do my job and fight here.
I am paid to fight. I am not yet paid to promote.
I have become lost in the game of promotion and forgot about the art of fighting.
There comes a time when you need to stop handing out flyers and get back to the damn shop.
50 world tours, 200 press conferences, 1 million interviews, 2 million photo shoots, and at the end of it all I'm left looking down the barrel of a lens, staring defeat in the face, thinking of nothing but my incorrect fight preparation. And the many distractions that led to this.
Nothing else was going through my mind.
It is time to go back and live the life that got me this life.
Sitting in a car on the way to some dump in Conneticut or somewhere, to speak to Tim and Suzie on the nobody gives a fuck morning show did not get me this life.
Talking to some lady that deep down doesn't give a fuck about what I'm doing, but just wants some sound bites so she can maybe get her little tight ass a nice raise, and I'm cool with that too, I've been giving you all raises. But I need to focus on me now.
I'm coming for my revenge here.
I flew an entire team to Portugal and to Iceland to make my adjustments in preparation and fix my errors I made with the weight and the cardio prep.
With the right adjustments and the right focus, I will finish what I started in that last fight.
I will not do this if I am back on the road handing out flyers again.
I will always play the game and play it better than anybody, but just for this one, where I am coming off a loss, I asked for some leeway where I can just train and focus. I did not shut down all media requests. I simply wanted a slight adjustment.
But it was denied.
There had been 10 million dollars allocated for the promotion of this event is what they told me.
So as a gesture of good will, I went and not only saved that 10 million dollars in promotion money, I then went and tripled it for them.
And all with one tweet.
Keep that 10 mill to promote the other bums that need it. My shows are good.
I must isolate myself now.
I am facing a taller, longer and heavier man. I need to prepare correctly this time.
I can not dance for you this time.
It is time for the other monkeys to dance. I've danced us all the way here.
Nate's little mush head looks good up on that stage these days. Stuff him in front of the camera for it.
He came in with no shit to do that last one. I'd already done press conferences, interviews and shot the ads before RDA pulled out.
Maybe I'll hit Cabo this time and skull some shots pre-fight with no obligation.
I'm doing what I need for me now.
It is time to be selfish with my training again. It is the only way.
I feel the $400million I have generated for the company in my last three events, all inside 8 months, is enough to get me this slight leeway.
I am still ready to go for UFC 200.
I will offer, like I already did, to fly to New York for the big press conference that was scheduled, and then I will go back into training. With no distractions.
If this is not enough or they feel I have not deserved to sit this promotion run out this one time, well then I don't know what to say.
For the record also -
For USADA and for the UFC and my contract stipulations -
I AM NOT RETIRED.

--------


We can change this from a retirement thread to just a Conor thread now.
