UFC featherweight champion Conor McGregor shocked the world on Tuesday when he announced that he has “decided to retire young.” Things got even more chaotic after the UFC announced that they had pulled McGregor from his headlining bout against Nate Diaz at UFC 200.

UFC President Dana White addressed the situation and said that it was because McGregor refused to take part in media obligations for UFC 200 with one, in particular, taking place this week in Las Vegas.

“Conor did not want to come to Las Vegas and film the commercial or be a part of any of the marketing that we have,” White said on SportsCenter on Wednesday. “He’s in Iceland training and it’s not possible.”

Well, here is some new video footage of McGregor’s training that was uploaded by Mjolnir MMA.

White believes McGregor will fight again later this year, but McGregor has reiterated his status of being retired after training on Tuesday.
