This is what happens when a fighter retires and then starts tweeting either accepting fights or turning them down.
Khamzat Chimaev started the latest flurry of rumors by saying he wanted to fight Conor McGregor along with two others in the same night. Conor simply replied that he was good to go with it. Dana would later come out and say that the fight would never happen and that Conor was retired but still the rumors persisted.
McGregor recently posted in Filipino leading many to speculate that he was going to fight Manny Pacquiao but the rest of us assumed he was just calling Khamzat out again in a different language.
Ariel Helwani apparently spoke to the Irishman today and it was reportedly revealed that Khamzat wasn’t in his plans…yet. With McGregor it’s almost impossible to get a straight answer or to determine what it is he is getting at most of the time. Here is what Ariel posted on Instagram.
