Daniel Cormier fears that Conor McGregor won’t make it to UFC 303.

McGregor (22-6 MMA, 10-4 UFC) apologized for canceling his look at a pre-fight press convention with Michael Chandler, which was scheduled for Monday at 3Arena in Dublin. The pair are set to headline the June 29 pay-per-view at T-Cell Enviornment.

The rationale for McGregor’s cancellation stays undisclosed, however Cormier believes his battle with Chandler (23-8 MMA, 2-3 UFC) could possibly be in jeopardy.

“Begin to brace your self somewhat bit for disappointment,” Cormier stated on his ESPN present “Good Man/Unhealthy Man” with Chael Sonnen. “I don’t imply to be the bearer of dangerous information. Dana White will argue and scream on the media. Dana White will give the media a tough time. Dana White has no downside letting the media down. You recognize who Dana White doesn’t like letting down? The followers. …

“To me, it looks like this can be a large deal. I’ve reached out to many within the group to attempt to discover out what occurred, and when everyone seems to be as tight-lipped as they’re proper now, to me that tells me it’s somewhat worrisome.”

Sonnen thinks in any other case. He sees it as an indication that McGregor is absolutely centered on the battle – and if he’s unsuitable, he doesn’t see “The Infamous” preventing once more.

“If Conor McGregor doesn’t battle Michael Chandler on June 29, which I believe he’s going to, (however) if he doesn’t, I might go a step additional as to let you know that that would be the announcement of his retirement,” Sonnen stated.
