Conor McGregor fights again by the end of the year. This is nothing more than a reminder to the #UFC of his worth to the company.
And given their respective actions on social media in recent days, I think we get McGregor vs Diaz III in July.

Say what you like about Conor McGregor but giving up the sport you love to do full time community service is a big move

Text from Dana White: ""He has the money to retire and his whiskey is KILLIN it. It totally makes sense. If I was him, I would retire too. He's retiring from fighting, not from working. The Whiksey will keep him busy and I'm sure he has other things he's working on."
