Top Fighting Championship (UFC) President Dana White likes to choose items at confront worth, so as far as he’s involved, each Henry Cejudo and Conor McGregor are retired from mixed martial arts (MMA) and will not be provided in future matchmaker conferences.
Cejudo claims he’s finished competing at the two flyweight and bantamweight, exactly where he captured (and defended) a pair of UFC titles, but not too long ago remaining the door open for a opportunity return if the marketing is prepared to guide him in opposition to featherweight kingpin Alexander Volkanovski.
“He’s retired,” White explained at the UFC on ESPN 11 push meeting. “I just did a further job interview where by folks are asking me about other retired men. These guys are retired. I’m not even contemplating about any of all those men. They’re retired. There are so many young children suitable now that are right here, that want to combat. All those are the people that I’m focused on.”
Whilst White may possibly be eager to component with “Triple C,” definitely he would be contemplating about McGregor, who like Cejudo held championship titles in two separate body weight lessons. Right after all, “Notorious” holds the document for UFC fork out-for every-perspective (PPV) buys and registers a just about $20 million stay gate.
“No,” White stated about calling the Irish slugger (by using ESPN). “Conor McGregor is retired. I do not chase men that really do not want to struggle. I really do not chase fellas. We offer guys 3 fights a calendar year. You get three fights a calendar year, if you really don’t want to fight, I have bought a roster entire of people who want to struggle.”
Cejudo, 33, walked away from overcome sports after finishing previous bantamweight champion Dominick Cruz at UFC 249. The 31 12 months-old McGregor, in the meantime, was final noticed at UFC 246 again in January, in which he smashed veteran “Cowboy” Donald Cerrone.
So I guess this means we must also say goodbye to Jon Jones?!?
