In one of the most highly-anticipated interviews of the year, Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) Featherweight champion Conor McGregor sat down with Kenny Mayne for ESPN’s “Sunday Conversation” to talk all things mixed martial arts (MMA).
Of course, the elephant in the room was Conor’s recent squabbles with his employer that got him pulled from his much-anticipated rematch against Nate Diaz, which was all set for UFC 200 on July 9, 2016 in Las Vegas, Nevada.
To hear Conor tell it, it all began as a fun back-and-forth, but when he was axed from the biggest card of the year, things blew up in a hurry.
In the videos embedded below, check out Conor’s entire conversation with Mayne as he outlines what led to his UFC 200 fallout, his “fun” war with UFC higher-ups, why he blew up, his endless media obligations, Floyd Mayweather needing him and much more.
More importantly though, listen to “Notorious” describe his current status with the promotion, which seems all is good at the moment.
