Focused Conor McGregor Refusing To Break Training For Even One Minute Of Pre-Fight Media

UFC superstar Conor McGregor is set to return to the octagon in just a matter of months. That being said, the Ireland native has yet to do any media for the upcoming match up.

“Notorious” is currently set to face off against undefeated UFC lightweight champion Khabib Nurmagomedov. The two talented mixed martial artists will throw down for the main event of UFC 229 on Oct. 6, live on pay-per-view.

Reported Dave Meltzer has since claimed that Conor McGregor is not currently agreeing to any media obligations for the upcoming match up.

“One of the reasons you haven’t seen much in the way of interviews and such is that McGregor has not agreed to do anything. There are no press conferences scheduled because McGregor at this point hasn’t agreed to them. There is a lot of frustration within the UFC about McGregor’s attitude, but in the end, he’s got the leverage and the ticket sales and secondary market results only give him more leverage.

“The feeling is that this may be the biggest non-boxing PPV of all-time, and the only reason it wouldn’t be is that McGregor hasn’t been pushing it hard. McGregor was able to get a larger piece of the action for this fight than any of his UFC fights to date, so there is a direct correlation more than ever between his work in promoting the fight and his pocket book, but this may also show that he knows he’s in a real fight and doesn’t want to break training.”
