How Conor McGregor won a bet on the next UFC title fight: Here’s how he did it
A UFC champion is a title contender.
The UFC has a very good track record of bringing a title fight to the United States.
And if Conor McGregor were to take a fight with Georges St-Pierre, he would likely be considered one of the greatest fighters to ever lace up his gloves.
But a couple weeks ago, McGregor announced he was skipping the UFC 200 pay-per-view event in Las Vegas because of a back injury.
McGregor said he was forced to withdraw due to a “coup” to make him appear healthy.
McGregor’s injury could keep him out of the UFC 202 card in Montreal, where the fight between St-Pens and St-Jacques is set to take place.
The UFC has not responded to a request for comment.
But the promotion has been criticized by the fans for not giving McGregor a fair chance to make the pay-goals he has requested.
McGregor was expected to make $150,000 per fight and earn $50,000 for each win, but his demands were not met, and the UFC is now looking to find a new champion.
McGregor, who made headlines with his controversial comments about being black and his disdain for white athletes, was scheduled to make his UFC debut in the UFC 206 main event on Saturday.
But he did not make it to the weigh-ins and did not fight at all.
In a statement to ESPN, McGregor said the decision was his and his only.
The fight was scheduled for Saturday’s pay-view, but McGregor was forced out of a planned event in Montreal due to “medical issues,” according to the UFC.
“It was my last UFC fight and I wanted to be there.
I’m disappointed that my fight was canceled and I will be back,” McGregor said.
“This is all I could think about.
I didn’t want to take it.
I did it for the fans.
It’s their show.
I wanted the fans to see me fight.
It was my fight and it was the only way I could.
It is my show and I can’t take it away from them.
I want them to see it.”
The UFC was not available for comment, and McGregor did not respond to messages seeking comment.
