Connor McGregor claims that his next fight will be a boxing match against Middle East legend Manny Pacquiao.
Dubliner announced his retirement this summer, leaving Bombell to explain the rationale behind the announcement.
McGregor battled boxing legend Floyd Mayweather in August 2017, but lost to TKO in the 10th round in Las Vegas.
McGregor took to Twitter to explain how he lost patience with the UFC while trying to organize a fight during the Kovid-19 Pandemic.
In a series of tweets, he said: “I’ve been working hard for this season. Multiple rivals, multiple dates are offered throughout. Everything will go backwards.
“Then when Covid hit, I walked away from this situation when there was a speech that I would have to wait for the crowd again.
“Anyway all the water under the bridge gives a weird giveaway. I’m boxing Manny Pacquiao next in the Middle East.”
After McGregor shared screenshots of his messages with UFC President Dana White, he shows that he wants to fight Diego Sanchez in Dublin this year.
The former two-weight champion retired this summer after failing to sign a contract with the company’s leading rival during the Kovid – 19 pandemic.
When McGregor shared several texts he and White sent in February, it was clear that McGregor wanted to have a ‘season’ fight in May and August this year.
Lessons show that Covid-19 offered White McGregor a shot at Justin Geith in July before capturing the pandemic world, but the infamous man wanted to fight back in May.
It also makes clear that McGregor is interested in facing veteran Diego Sanchez in Dublin this year, as the 32-year-old responded to the challenge with his last fight.
In a tweet, McGregor shared messages: “To Diego Sanchez … I saw your recent comments about your last match, and I am!
“After you fought Pereira, I requested that you and I compete in Dublin. I was pre-Kovid when I worked for my season’s opposition in February. Good luck this weekend!”
