Conor McGregor Blames ONE FC For UFC Flyweight Division Downfall

Conor McGregor Claims ONE Championship CEO Chatri Sityodtong Is Responsible For UFC Flyweight Division Collapse

ONE championship has signed many former UFC stars recently. Eddie Alvarez decided to test his luck on Asian soil. The amazing trade between Demetrious Johnson and Ben Askren is finalized at the end of October this year. Sage Northcutt will also attend ONE FC event this weekend. He looked so happy and relaxed on his way to Singapore. “Super” is a free agent at the moment, so anything can happen. Miesha Tate might recently join the Asian promotion as a vice-president.

Since Demetrious Johnson left, UFC flyweight division doesn’t have a real superstar. UFC also plans to shut down men’s Flyweight division! Jose “Shorty” Torres and Jarred Brooks are already released. According to the sources, more rooster cuts are also a realistic possibility.

Conor McGregor blamed ONE FC for UFC Flyweight division downfall. He attacked ONE Championship CEO Chatri Sityodtong heavily, claiming his “greed” is the main reason for everything. “The Notorious” also mentioned that many fighters won’t be able to feed their families.

You must now take all the 125lbers that have been let go, Chatri.

You talk all of this Martial Art and respect talk, yet your greed has directly cost more than half a fighting division it’s chance to earn income for their family.

Have respect @YODCHATRI.

Sign the division.

But earlier this week, Chatri Sityodtong claimed that ONE FC would never even make an attempt to sign Conor McGregor. According to ONE Championship CEO, “The Notorious” is not a good choice because of his actions. The Asian promotion doesn’t support trash-talkers. (via

“If Conor McGregor was a free agent, ONE Championship would not try to sign him,” Sityodtong told CNN in April. “We don’t want somebody to swear at people, throw water bottles, disrespect people, call out people’s wives and children, and – in my opinion – other distasteful stuff that is not representative of true martial arts.”

Ben Askren and Patricio Freire strongly disagree with McGregor’s comments. “Funky” claims nobody affects paychecks. Yet, “Pitbull” blames “cheap whiskey and drugs” for Conor’s post.

Do you support The Irishman’s tweet? After all, UFC is already in process to dissolve the flyweight division. What do you think, how many fighters is going to follow Johnson’s footsteps?
