There has been much speculation as to what Conor McGregor’s big announcement that he will reveal sometime after his main event fight against UFC lightweight champion Eddie Alvarez at UFC 205 on November 12.
During the UFC 205 conference call, “The Notorious” asked if the rumor of him walking away from the UFC in 2017 was valid and if it was a negotiation tactic to get the UFC to compensate him more for future bouts.
McGregor replied with a bit of disgust and said to not believe everything you read in the media. “They don’t know shit about me,” McGregor stated.
McGregor: The Irish Mirror – they don't know shit about me. Don't be listening to people like that. I will reveal my plans in time.
