Following Conor’s recent win against Nate Diaz, it was announced that the Dubliner would have to fight again soon against Jose Aldo to defend his featherweight belt or be at risk of loosing it, however now UFC bosses seem to have had a slight change of heart.
Instead of making the decision for the Crumlin native, Dana White has left the choice in Conor’s hands, as to whether he wants to fight at that weight again.
The Irish sports star has a very big choice to make, however it seems the UFC boss won’t be taking severe measures.
Speaking to NBC Sports Radio Dana said, “He’s not gonna get stripped, he’s gonna make a decision. He knows that the Nate Diaz fight isn’t the fight to make right now. He has to either defend his title or give it up and decide what he wants to do next.
“Think about this, Pacquiao/Mayweather, the build up for that fight, everything else. That fight didn’t live up to the hype and I think, more importantly, it left a really bad taste in people’s mouths.
“I don’t think that was the case for Diaz-McGregor. With the amount of people that were pulled in to watch that fight, everybody left satisfied and those are the kind of fights that make you want to come back and watch again.”
For some reason, we can’t imagine Conor giving up his belt too easily…
