Conor McGregor: Ég er ekki hættur!

Conor McGregor sendi frá sér langa yfirlýsingu rétt í þessu. Í yfirlýsingunni segist hann ekki vera hættur.

„Ég hef týnst í kynningarleiknum og hef gleymt bardagalistinni,“ segir Conor McGregor m.a. í yfirlýsingunni sinni á opinberri Facebook síðu sinni.

„Ég fæ borgað fyrir að berjast. Ég fæ ekki enn borgað fyrir að kynna bardaga. Það kemur sá tími þar sem þú þarft að hætta að dreifa auglýsingum og koma þér aftur í helvítis sjoppuna.“

Miðað við yfirlýsinguna er Conor McGregor augljóslega þreyttur á þeim kröfum sem UFC setur á hann þegar kemur að kynningu á bardögunum. UFC vildi fá McGregor til Las Vegas til að taka þátt í litlum kynningartúr en McGregor neitaði að mæta líkt og Dana White hefur sagt.

UFC ætlaði að kynna UFC 200 í Las Vegas, Stockton (heimaborg Nate Diaz) og New York með þá McGregor og Nate Diaz í broddi fylkingar. McGregor var ekki tilbúinn til þess þar sem hann þarf að einbeita sér meira af æfingum.

„Ég sit eftir, starandi í linsuna, sé ósigurinn og get ekki hugsað um neitt annað en slæma undirbúninginn og allt ónæðið sem leiddi til tapsins. Það er ekkert annað sem fer um huga minn.“

„Núna þarf ég að einbeita mér. Ég ætla að ná fram hefndinni minni. Ég flaug heilu liði til Portúgals og Íslands til að aðlaga undirbúninginn minn og laga það sem fór úrskeiðis með þyngdina mína og þolþjálfun. Með réttum æfingum og undirbúningi mun ég klára það sem ég byrjaði á. Það mun ekki gerast ef ég er að dreifa auglýsingum aftur.“

McGregor segist alls ekki hafna öllum óskum fjölmiðla en óski eftir smá svigrúmi í þetta sinn þar sem hann er að berjast eftir tap. Þeirri beiðni hafi hins vegar verið hafnað.

McGregor lauk yfirlýsingunni svo á þessum orðum:

„Til að hafa allt á hreinu –
UFC og USADA –
ÉG ER EKKI HÆTTUR.“

Yfirlýsingin er afar áhugaverð en hana má sjá í heild sinni hér að neðan:

„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.“
