Conor McGregor Isn’t a Fan of Quitters
Last April, before the infamous backstage brawl happened, Conor McGregor made headlines for his rough comment about UFC fighters.
The highly-anticipated UFC 223 was set to boil on April 8. But days before the competition, Tony Ferguson reportedly withdrew from the fight due to an injury.
In his post on social media, Ferguson revealed that he suffered a torn knee ligament while attending a pre-fight media obligation. This marked the third time the Khabib-Tony showdown did not push through.
With Ferguson now out for the UFC 223, featherweight champ Max Holloway was tapped as his replacement. But in another sort of setback, the Blessed was also ruled ineligible after bein declared medically unfit.
The Notorious is Furious
This did not sit well with ‘The Notorious.’
McGregor took to Twitter to vent his frustration over these UFC fighters on a very Conor McGregor way.
These fools pull out more times than I do with my dick.

The post set the social media ablaze as it gained more than 140 000 likes and over 41 000 retweets.
Conor has an incredible story of overcoming an injury. McGregor revealed that he was nursing a potentially career-ending ACL tear in his fight against Chad Mendes three years ago. Just like other UFC fighters, he could have backed out of that fight. But in amazing display of courage, the injured McGregor continued the fight and emerged as the eventual winner.
Last Wednesday night, a news broke out that Holloway has been ruled out of his fight against Brian Ortega in the upcoming UFC 226. Reports said that the 28-year old fighter experienced contussion-like symptopms and his conditions has worsened.
Well, it seems that his view about this matter has changed. In a Twitter post today, McGregor wrote an unexpected message for Holloway regarding his removal from the UFC 226.
My thoughts and my respect are with 145lb World Champion Max ‘Blessed’ Holloway.
