Conor McGregor is headed for the biggest fight of his career when he meets Eddie Alvarez in the main event of November 12’s UFC 205 from Madison Square Garden, but apparently there’s he’s going through some “personal stuff” which will be revealed after his bid to become the first concordant two-class weight class champ.
And apparently it’s going to be something quite surprising, as UFC President Dana White recently revealed on MMA Podcast (via Champions.co) that he wrestled with McGregor to vacate his featherweight belt, but other factors played into the decision:
“Listen, I battled this thing forever. [Holding onto both belts] is not fair to Jose Aldo, it’s not fair to Khabib and Max Holloway. So, believe me, I battled with this thing but there are … how can I say this? There are other circumstances involved in this that will be played out after the fight.”
“It’s something completely out of left field but it’s Conor’s business, it’s not mine, and I’ll let Conor announce it when he’s ready to.”
Just what that news may be is already being fervently thrown about the rumor mill as expected, with possibilities ranging from his long-rumored fight with Floyd Mayweather to him breaking up with longtime girlfriend Dee Devlin – and of course the other side of the coin involves a rumor that Devlin is pregnant.
It all’s nothing but rumor at this point, however, and it will supposedly be revealed right after what should be the biggest MMA event of all time in New York.
