Whether to draw more attention and intrigue to get speculation running, or with sincere honesty, Conor McGregor says he has some major news to reveal following UFC 205.
UFC 205, of course, is being setup to be the UFC’s biggest fight card ever, and McGregor finds himself in the main event.
Still the reigning featherweight champion, McGregor is set to challenge lightweight champion Eddie Alvarez in a bona fide super-fight where he will look to make history by being the first UFC fighter to hold belts in two weight classes simultaneously.
It is after that bout, which McGregor obviously expects to win, that he plans to make the announcement, but he will not reveal anything about it other than promising it will be well worth hearing.
“Buy the pay-per-view and stay tuned,” McGregor told MMAjunkie. “Don’t blink. It’s going to be big.”
UFC 205 is set to take place Nov. 12 and will be the UFC’s first card in New York following the legalization of MMA in the state just earlier this year after many years of legal battles.
The mega-event will take place in the world’s most famous venue, Madison Square Garden.
Should McGregor successfully capture the lightweight title, UFC President Dana White has gone on record multiple times saying that McGregor will have to give up one of the titles as a result.
White seems to know what McGregor wants to announce, but will let the fighter do it when he is ready.
“There are… how can I say this? There are other circumstances involved in this that will be played out after the fight,” White told Outside The Cage. “It’s something completely out of left field but it’s Conor’s business, it’s not mine, and I’ll let Conor announce it when he’s ready to.”
