“McGregor is not hurt.” Are old problems catching up with Conor?

It seems that the Irish must literally be saved from addiction.

On the night of June 29-30, the most interesting UFC 303 tournament will take place. Initially, its main event was supposed to be the showdown between Conor McGregor and Michael Chandler. But fans finally have to accept the fact that the opponents are not ready to enter the cage yet. The fight failed because the Irishman was wounded and forced to retreat. It is true that this is the official version that the fighter’s team, as well as the organization, adheres to. But experts express disbelief, as Conor promised to return for a long time, but the event was constantly postponed. And now there is plenty of evidence that the old problems have gotten the better of McGregor.

McGregor once again rode the UFC and showed his two-faced nature:

Conor won’t be back. The Irishman lost everything in search of hype

A very interesting position was expressed by former UFC fighter and now analyst Chael Sonnen. He noted that the Irishman did not retire due to injury: “McGregor has no injury. I don’t know if we’re putting on a show or if we should play along. Conor McGregor is not injured and it is a very difficult situation because the people who speak for him do not want to hide anything, but the truth always comes to light. This is a bit of a complicated situation. I’m disappointed. I don’t want to make life difficult for Conor and my priority is to put health first, but he has known this for over a year. They were supposed to fight last June. What an incredible irony that both parties have a huge interest in alcohol and one is in rehab.”

Everyone remembers that Conor really abused alcohol for a long time. And many directly attribute Conor’s terrible crisis to his addictions. Therefore, Sonnen’s words may well be true. The coincidences that again start to occur just before a possible return seem too strange. First, the cancellation of the press conference, after which Conor continued to state that he would definitely enter the cage and fight. Then the definitive admission of the injury and the refusal to fight. McGregor’s words are increasingly difficult to believe.

It is curious that now even the head of the UFC, Dana White, who previously constantly said that this was inevitable, has stopped believing in the possible return of Notorious. But the constant antics of the Irishman, apparently, even made it clear to him that it was no longer worth waiting for Conor in the cage. Maybe McGregor will try his luck in boxing again to make a lot of money and become rich once again. But Notorius is unlikely to perform at a high level in mixed martial arts.

Dana Blanco

President of the UFC

“Conor will be 36 years old in July. He’s got a lot of money and guys like him and Jon Jones, who knows what’s going to happen? Maybe Jon Jones will fight again, maybe not. Maybe Conor McGregor will fight again, maybe not. “With guys who reach a certain level, you never know if you’ll see them again.”

It seems like the old problems are really weighing down Conor. He became a standard fighter, but his loss to Khabib began to completely ruin his career. The second key moment was Nurmagomedov’s departure from the sport. After this, the Irishman completely lost motivation. And, apparently, he could only find solace in alcohol. That’s why all the subsequent fights were so controversial. It’s a shame Conor’s career ended like this. But Sonnen and White’s words so far hint that McGregor will no longer appear in the octagon.
