Conor McGregor posted to his IG account earlier this morning with a caption that reads more like a desperate plea, and less like a guy who appeared to have the UFC on a platter just a few months ago. Accompanying the video of him fighting Nate Diaz (that sort of glosses over the whole part where he submitted) was the following quote that you almost certainly just read above two seconds ago:

"Nobody gives a fuck about these other fights until this one is settled. Cut the bullshit. Run it back. #RealFight"

Perhaps McGregor's post is him having a realization that hype is what draws the big bucks to the sport, and that he just should've done the damn presser for McGregor-Diaz II instead of pretending to retire. Regardless, UFC 200 has moved on after booking round two of Jones-Cormier.

The part about nobody giving a fuck about "these other fights" may be a reference to UFC's desire to unify the featherweight belts by having McGregor fight the winner of the upcoming Frankie Edgar vs. Jose Aldo rematch.

As for the part about "until this one is settled"? Well...we don't really have any idea what that means.
