McGregor Offered to Train with Real Madrid

The skillsets of Conor McGregor seem never-ending, whether it’s dominating opponents in the Octagon or playing football with his local club. Video footage was released of Conor McGregor showcasing his talents with football, revealing afterwards that he’d had formal training when being younger. Multiple clips were released by Conor to his Instagram account, explaining that he’s got the strength acquired to putt a ball into the net seriously.

Conor McGregor had recently returned from Ireland after taking a vacation in the South of France with family members. Notorious was provided with the extraordinary opportunity to travel during the coronavirus because Ireland decreased limitations associated with international flying.

Returning home saw McGregor, a day later attending the Black Forge Football Club in Ireland, where he’d score two goals against their goalie. His third shot towards the net bounced off the post into the stands before Connor could convert the football. It should be clarified that Conor “Notorious” McGregor had a crowd of Irish supporters watching him practice for fun. Some were chanting for the UFC Champion to become Ireland’s next Taoiseach.

Training Offer from Sergio Ramos

When Conor McGregor shared these football clips to his Instagram, Notorious requested the opinion of Sergio Ramos in the comments. This comes after the Real Madrid Defender was seen performing the iconic “Billi Strut” used by McGregor before every UFC fight. Athletes that support & admire the talents of Conor often perform the “Billi Strut” to honour the champ.

Sergio Ramos responded promptly towards McGregor’s question of his opinion. Praise was provided to Conor, with the Real Madrid footballers inviting Notorious to compete in one of their training sessions. It’s expected that the two men have started direct communication with each other, determining the best period to join a training session during COVID-19.

McGregor has an abundance of free time after “Retiring” from the UFC, which most in the MMA community don’t believe. Making use of his time until an inevitable return would prove beneficial for Conor’s physical health, allowing MMA training to resume at a moments notice. Rejoining the UFC will have McGregor step into a new world of mixed martial arts, one that he might not be compatible with.

Dana White Reverses Consideration on McGregor Return

UFC supporters are growing desperate for the 3rd return of Conor “The Irishman” McGregor, who retired earlier in 2020 amid the coronavirus pandemic & failed salary discussions with Dana White. When this fallout initially began, Dana White refused to allow Conor McGregor back into the Ultimate Fighting Championship. That mentality has changed for the UFC President, with White now considering his return after fanfare suggested that the Irishman compete against Jorge “Gamebred” Masvidal for the Intermediate Welterweight Championship.

The likelihood of this fight occurring seems to be growing. MMA Analysts refuse to believe that McGregor can compete at 170lbs, the pound-class required for the Welterweight division. Conor proved naysayers wrong by posting an Instagram picture of his Post-COVID body frame, which sustained the required weight for the Jorge Masvidal fight. The primary problem with maintaining this fight is that Conor “The Notorious” McGregor is designated as retired from the UFC. His battle with Masvidal isn’t possible until a public re-entry into the Ultimate Fighting Championship.

Dana White could find himself struggling to reacquire Dana White into the UFC. Notorious claims that his 3rd retirement is permanent, even though video evidence posted by the former Featherweight & Lightweight Champion suggests that his MMA training hasn’t stopped. Additionally, maintaining the bodyweight of 170lbs almost guarantees that McGregor is planning a return. It’s not surprising when considering that Conor remains ranked #4 in the UFC Lightweight Division, while also listen in the UFCs Top Ten Fighters. Some would say his return is inevitable.

An Inevitable Return

The UFC President was asked on his thoughts behind the 3rd return of Conor McGregor, with Dana White clarifying he suspects Notorious will look for a contracted fight by 2021. Delays in Conor’s performance is most likely prompted because of the coronavirus pandemic, with some analysts suggesting it’s because McGregor doesn’t have an opponent in the Featherweight division with Double-Digital Losses that he hasn’t previously fought. McGregor doesn’t conventionally compete against Top-Listed UFC Competitors anymore, with his older age limiting formidable skillsets. Most suspect that his last fight at UFC 246 was rigged for Donald “The Cowboy” Cerrone to lose.

Conor McGregor Lashes at Nate Diaz

The Irishman hasn’t stopped his months-long tyrants against his former competitors in the UFC. Conor McGregor continues to attack former opponents & fighter’s he’s never met after retiring from the UFC for the 3rd time. This was proven again after McGregor verbally assaulted his most prominent rival, Nate Diaz. Verbal assaults followed after Nate “The Stockton Slugger” Diaz claimed that Max Holloway was robbed of victory during UFC 251.

Max “Blessed” Holloway received his rematch with Alex “The Great” Volkanovski, with their bout highly anticipated by UFC loyalists. Acting as the Co-Headlining Fight against Jorge Masvidal & Kamaru Usman, domination during the initial two rounds aware seen with Max Holloway. It wouldn’t be until the 3rd round that Alex Volkanovski began regaining his composure.

Judges determined that Volkanovski won the 3rd, 4th, and 5th rounds during their UFC 251 bout. Viewers could see that both men were equally matched throughout the 4th & 5th rounds. That should’ve meant victory for Max “Blessed” Holloway, with him holding a win over an additional round over Alex. Split-Decision Victory was given to Volkanovski, showing again that UFC Judges aren’t accurately capable to score an MMA fight.

When Nate Diaz made he remarked over Twitter, Conor McGregor didn’t hesitate to retort back to his former enemy. The Irishman lashed aggressively against Nate Diaz and informed him to “Shut Your B* A Up”. It would take less than five minutes before McGregor deleted this tweet, but thousands had screenshotted it & posted it online. Now becoming viral, Diaz supporters are waiting to see how the Stockton-Native reacts to McGregor.

Trilogy Fight Impossible

It’s continuously been speculated that Nate Diaz & Conor McGregor could have a third fight in the UFC, with both men creating a rivalry. The 1st match-up was seen at UFC 196, with Diaz dominating over the Irishman via submission. When both men returned six pay-per-views later at UFC 2020, Conor McGregor would physically pressure the Stockholm Slugger. Both meetings for a 3rd fight would be highly desired amongst UFC supporters. However, Dana White has refused to accept Conor McGregor back into the Ultimate Fighters Competition. Retiring a 3rd time over financial disputes was enough to anger UFCs President.

Conor McGregor Suggests Move to WWE

Conor “The Irishman” McGregor could be switching over to another variation of professional fighting. Competing in the UFC isn’t possible for McGregor after retiring for a 3rd time, with Dana White clarifying then wouldn’t accept another return from Conor after contract negotiations didn’t meet either parties’ expectations. After thirty days remaining quite regarding his future in professional fighting, McGregor has iterated interest in switching over to the WWE.

Speculation regarding Conor McGregor switching over to professional wrestling has grown tenfold since the retired UFC champion called out Vince McMahon, WWE Head Chairman for the Board of Directors. It’s known that McMahon hasn’t responded to McGregor on the concept of competing. However, the chances that these two men will reach a formal agreement is signed.

The Last Fight for McGregor

McGregor proved himself able to create complex storylines surrounding the Octagon when competing against Donald Cerrone during UFC 246 in January 2020. It took forty seconds for the Irishman to dominate over the Cowboy; a competitor recorded with the most fights in UFC history. MMA Supporters knew that Donald Cerrone was paid to lose against Conor McGregor at UFC 246, receiving $10 million for the minor beating. Dana White hoped that the Irishman’s dominance over Donald Cerrone would prompt follow-up fights with Justin Gaethje, Tony Ferguson, and Khabib Nurmagomedov. Gaethje was the exclusive contender not to refuse competition against McGregor.

Conor McGregor is entering the world of professional wrestling if perfectly suitable for his personality. The Irishman has often bolstered a reputation similar to WWE Opponents like Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson, without the additional niceties associated with professional wrestlers. It’s almost guaranteed his presence on the WWE Roster would significantly bolster views. However, supporters of McGregor would see that the Irishman is falsifying his moves. Moving from the WWE to the UFC is possible, reversing this order might prove challenging.

The WWE Executive & Husband to Vince McMahons Daughter, “Triple H”, confirmed that they’re interested in the concept of acquiring Conor McGregor. There are also hopes in obtaining Jon Jones & Daniel Cormier, which will prove more challenging with both expressing a lack of interest.
