With tasting defeat for the first time in the UFC against UFC veteran Nate Diaz at UFC 196, the two are set for an immediate rematch once again in a non-title welterweight bout that will headline UFC 200. However, McGregor tweeted on Tuesday out of nowhere that he is looking to close the curtains on his MMA career.

I'd retire if I were him. He's got nothing but losing fights left in the UFC.

It'll be 2 in a row when he loses to Diaz again. Simply put Connor can't make 145 and can't compete with the elite at 155, retirement is better than a string of losses.

He either wants more money, more attention, or got bored.

This isn't new.

I like to think he heard how much GSP was offered and got mad about it and wants more

And the plot thickens. I am digging the soap opera this could be turning into

My initial thoughts as well. We know how desperate he is for money, the most money. I imagine he has entered into a position of holding his participation in UFC 200 hostage until his newest demands are met.

A lot of people are saying that Joao Carvalho's death (which he was ringside at) has weighed heavily on him. But i personally think he's not happy with whatever the UFC is offering him money-wise for 200, and is probably doing this to get more.

Conor is most likely doing this for a bigger pay from Dana, so if he loses at 200, then he won't be a complete loser cus he just milked Dana for as much as he could get so who gives a flying fuck if he loses to Nate..but Nate would get the biggest prop in his life, being the guy who retired Conor..i rather be the Nate then Conor walking away with boats of cash

I don't know why that failed to occur to me. Makes sense.

Interesting...I think he can still make FW at least 1 more time for Frankie, I think he could do pretty well at LW too (champ is a major question but doing well really isn't for me). There is also the whole death thing, the more money thing, the legacy thing (which we recently argued about ourselves). Who knows but I want to see where this lands.

He probably knows it is only a matter of time until he becomes the next Darrell Horcher.



And now this.


LOL
