In this day and age when most UFC fighters (and the UFC itself) seem more interested in making the biggest “money fight” possible for every single event instead of focusing on the rankings and cage merits. So it’s very refreshing when a current champion comes forward to say that he’s tired of all that and states he doesn’t plan on begging for money.
When it comes to ‘money fights’ everyone knows there isn’t a bigger one than Conor McGregor. Bantamweights like champion Cody ‘No Love’ Garbrandt, basically every featherweight in the rankings as well as most lightweights, and even some welterweights like champion Tyron Woodley or Donald ‘Cowboy’ Cerrone have tried to call out Conor McGregor.
On a recent interview for Submission Radio. The champion had this to say on the matter:
“It’s crazy. I thought we were all men here, but they’re trying to chase Conor McGregor around, trying to get this and that. It is what it is. If it’s meant to be, it’s meant to be. I ain’t chasing nobody. I’m gonna make my damn self my own money fight.”
