McGregor McRetires? No. But let's talk about him anyway.

Recommended Posts

Yeah, i've had literally 8 posts about this appear on my newsfeed on social media from ESPN MMA in less than 24 hours. It's as though no other MMA is actually happening.

Interesting that the fight is at welterweight. Maybe testing the waters for a summer fight with Masvidal? 

I could see McGregor getting the better of Cerrone, but I don't see anything but bad things if he ever fought Masvidal. That won't end well for him.

McGregor vs Masvidal would be a monster. The UFC would no doubt resurrect the BMF belt, bring in the likes of Sly Stallone and Mike Tyson as further window dressing, and have McGregor and Masvidal trade barbs at pressers. 

It would also potentially solidify Masvidal as the promotion's biggest star. The UFC are already embracing him as such. He's currently featured in a TV advert for a betting company that the UFC has a business relationship with. The commercial ends with him mugging for the camera. A win over McGregor would only enhance his status further.

I think Ariel Helwani is in love with Conor McGregor. For months he’s been mostly ignoring all the bad stories coming out about him and just speculating and reporting on possible returns and opponents. Fell over himself to let the world know that Conor was NOT the father of that little girl, like he was a Jewish Jeremy Kyle or something. Now Conor vs Cowboy gets announced, a few people have complained that it should’ve been Justin Gaethje (I’d have preferred that but at this point, I think the Cowboy fight is fine) and Ariel appears to be having somewhat of a meltdown jumping to his defence again. Look at the wally...

Looking like a malnourished Drake and sounding like a teenage girl defending her first boyfriend to her parents who hate him. Get to your room Ariel, you’re grounded.

What a strange video. I'm not saying that McGregor has ducked opponents, but Helwani' argument is flawed. 

McGregor not having a win since 2016 isn't proof that he hasn't ducked anyone.. He's only fought in the UFC once since then. A fighter's inactivity in such circumstances could easily be brought about by ducking opponents and choosing not to fight.

Well, if said teenage girl was famous, there is every chance that the boyfriend is Drake as well.
