Former UFC champion Conor McGregor has shed light on his sudden decision to end his career. As it turned out, the Irishman was offended by the promotion due to the fact that he was not allowed to fight for the title of interim lightweight champion.
“I’m a little tired of this game. I watched the previous show, which led the Woodley-Burns match. I watched today’s tournament. It just doesn’t cause me any more emotions.
The game no longer delights me, that’s all. All these expectations, nothing happens. I choose an opponent, but at the moment there is nothing serious. There is nothing to excite me.
The UFC just had to move on. Why postpone the battle of Khabib Nurmagomedov against Justin Gatji to September? You know what should happen in September, but it will not.
I presented them with a plan and method of correct action. But they always want to abandon it, not allow it to happen, or simply to delay time. No matter what I say, they go against the clock to show their influence. They just had to arrange a fight between me and Gage for the interim champion title and move on, “said McGregor.
