After UFC 196 Conor McGregor decided to change his approach, he needed a fresh plan in order to beat Nate Diaz in the rematch. He drafted in Dillon Danis to improve his Jiu Jitsu and he also moved his camp to Iceland; this Icelandic switch led to Diaz VS. McGregor being pulled from UFC 200 because McGregor wouldn’t travel to the press conference. He infamously decided to retire for only a few minutes as a result of being pulled from the fight.
I have decided to retire young.
Thanks for the cheese.
Catch ya's later.

McGregor also brought in rising Irish boxing star Conor Wallace. Wallace stands in the southpaw stance and uses his jab and reach advantage to win fights. He clearly emulated the style of Nate Diaz. In a recent turn of event Wallace was “Lured” into alleyway by a group of “vigilantes”. It was thought that Wallace was arrested by the police service of Northern Ireland yet he’s taken to FaceBook to debunk the rumors.
“I would like to make it public that I have not been arrested nor charged with anything.
“The PSNI took me for my own safety after a member of the public rang the PSNI after he witnessed me being cornered by men wearing knuckle dusters etc.
“I would appreciate all your help and support on this matter and this is all I can say as my legal team is now dealing with this matter. Thank you very much for your help and support.”
