Conor McGregor wanted to fight at UFC 300
Conor McGregor’s next bout has been the topic of conversation in the mixed martial arts (MMA) community for quite some time now. Many people believed that “The Notorious” would be a part of the UFC 300 event, despite the fact that he has already seemingly confirmed his return for the month of June.
According to the findings of MMA journalist Ariel Helwani, Conor McGregor even attempted to convince the Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) to include him on the historic card of the company. However, they agreed to fight at the International Fight Week instead of a competition. Regarding X, Helwani wrote:
In point of fact, the date of June 29 in Las Vegas is set for the International Fight Week. In June, IFW will be held for the very first time. In most cases, it is the first or second Saturday of the month of July. At the age of 300, McGregor proposed a fight. He exerted a great deal of effort to achieve it. I was assured that he was prepared. However, following a discussion with the upper management the previous week, they decided to settle on June 29.
