I heard he was going ahead with the rematch against nate diaz, but then this? he was also scrapped from the rematch because he did not come to las vegas to promote his rematch.

i don't know all of the details but if conor is basically protesting having to do a million pressers all over the place, that's kind of cool.

employee vs boss, round 414283932923859, fight.

I am just trying to do my job and fight here.
I am paid to fight. I am not yet paid to promote.
I have become lost in the game of promotion and forgot about the art of fighting.
There comes a time when you need to stop handing out flyers and get back to the damn shop.
50 world tours, 200 press conferences, 1 million interviews, 2 million photo shoots, and at the end of it all I'm left looking down the barrel of a lens, staring defeat in the face, thinking of nothing but my incorrect fight preparation. And the many distractions that led to this.
Nothing else was going through my mind.
It is time to go back and live the life that got me this life.
Sitting in a car on the way to some dump in Conneticut or somewhere, to speak to Tim and Suzie on the nobody gives a fuck morning show did not get me this life.
Talking to some lady that deep down doesn't give a fuck about what I'm doing, but just wants some sound bites so she can maybe get her little tight ass a nice raise, and I'm cool with that too, I've been giving you all raises. But I need to focus on me now.
I'm coming for my revenge here.
I flew an entire team to Portugal and to Iceland to make my adjustments in preparation and fix my errors I made with the weight and the cardio prep.
With the right adjustments and the right focus, I will finish what I started in that last fight.
I will not do this if I am back on the road handing out flyers again.
I will always play the game and play it better than anybody, but just for this one, where I am coming off a loss, I asked for some leeway where I can just train and focus. I did not shut down all media requests. I simply wanted a slight adjustment.
But it was denied.
There had been 10 million dollars allocated for the promotion of this event is what they told me.
So as a gesture of good will, I went and not only saved that 10 million dollars in promotion money, I then went and tripled it for them.
And all with one tweet.
Keep that 10 mill to promote the other bums that need it. My shows are good.
I must isolate myself now.
I am facing a taller, longer and heavier man. I need to prepare correctly this time.
I can not dance for you this time.
It is time for the other monkeys to dance. I've danced us all the way here.
Nate's little mush head looks good up on that stage these days. Stuff him in front of the camera for it.
He came in with no shit to do that last one. I'd already done press conferences, interviews and shot the ads before RDA pulled out.
Maybe I'll hit Cabo this time and skull some shots pre-fight with no obligation.
I'm doing what I need for me now.
It is time to be selfish with my training again. It is the only way.
I feel the $400million I have generated for the company in my last three events, all inside 8 months, is enough to get me this slight leeway.
I am still ready to go for UFC 200.
I will offer, like I already did, to fly to New York for the big press conference that was scheduled, and then I will go back into training. With no distractions.
If this is not enough or they feel I have not deserved to sit this promotion run out this one time, well then I don't know what to say.
For the record also -
For USADA and for the UFC and my contract stipulations -
I AM NOT RETIRED.

daamn.

The question is whether or not he'll fight on the 200 card. I say he will.

Wouldn't be surprised if it was a marketing stunt to get more attention for the fight anyway.

cool if true. I want to see the rematch. That was a huge step up in weight for Conor.

Lol @ "Ultimate Fight Club".

It seems that mcgregor allready had his rematch in ufc 202 against diaz and it was a bloody fight to the end.

<a href="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bOc2ZE-g7y0" target="_blank">http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bOc2ZE-g7y0</a>

If he got his revenge, will that bring him back to where he was before he lost to diaz or not.

not sure.. mma is a different animal so, one loss doesn't ruin your "GOAT STATUS" .. not saying he's goat status, but he was trying to get there by moving up several divisions etc.

for him to go up from competing at 145 to 170 is just insane.. so i think that his rematch win should make people forget about his first loss @ 170.

dno though.. i imagine he's going back down to 145 HEH!! unless they make a big money third match.

i heard he gassed out of nowhere? didn't see the entire fight.

Same, I didnt see the entire fight too. But it looks like it from the highlight I watched. he also mentioned in the post presser that during the fight he had kicked diaz's knees alot of times, it took an effect on his shin, he came to the post presser limping lol.

he should be careful else he could 'anderson silva' his shin, meaning like anderson broke his shin kicking the knee of his opponents.  :P

I was actually surprised by how low Alvarez went with this comment.. Conor didn't seem to handle it very well. Never seen Conor shut down so hard during trash talk.
