Conor McGregor and his Ultimate Fighter opponent, Michael Chandler, were preparing for a fight a year in the making. However, just weeks before UFC 303, Conor pulled out of the fight. Dana White announced the change and revealed it was an injury, but some people doubt the story.

Now, McGregor is speaking out about his reasons for pulling out and lashing out at his doubters. Here is what the former UFC Champion had to say.

Conor McGregor Reveals Reason He Backed Out Of UFC 303

One of the biggest problems with Conor McGregor is that he has often been a big mouth to his opposition. When he was supposed to fight Rafael dos Anjos in 2016, Anjos had to pull out due to injury. Conor mocked him, calling it a bruise and saying he would never do that. Now that he is, people like Anjos are striking back at him.

However, it seems Conor is not able to take the jabs himself. With all the doubters questioning why Conor McGregor canceled his UFC 303 fight, he is telling his story. The former champ says he has a broken toe.

He posted a photo on Instagram showing him sparring in preparation. In the comments, he said he was getting ready for the fight, and it “is absolutely gut-wrenching to take.”

“We had a lapse in concentration and engaged in a training session without wearing the full protective gear and I hit the toe off the elbow and broke the toe clean,” McGregor explained in the caption. “It needs a few weeks that’s it.”

He also said this is a minor setback and plans to “take the lesson and move forward.” He also said that he has two fights left on his contract. He says he still wants to buy “Bugattis and more yachts,” so he has to take his time and come back stronger than ever.

Conor McGregor Says Michael Chandler Needs To Fight Him

Conor McGregor said he wants more money, which is why he wants to keep fighting. He also finished his post by saying he would return soon, “Chandler or not.”

Conor McGregor then went off on X, talking more about Michael Chandler. It seems people have been dissing Conor for making Chandler wait so long for a fight. In a couple of posts on X, he explained that Chandler was getting paid 10 times more to fight him than he makes in other fights. He said it would take 10 fights for Chandler to make the money he would make in one fight with McGregor.
