Fight on?

Days after a pre-fight press conference between Conor McGregor and Michael Chandler was abruptly canceled with just 12 hours’ notice, the Irishman posted a 10-slide training video in preparation for the scheduled June 29 showdown at UFC 303.

McGregor will return to the Octagon for the first time in three years after suffering a broken leg in the 2021 defeat to Dustin Poirier.

The fans’ anticipation turned to nervousness when the press conference was canceled and the lack of an explanation that followed.

“In consultation with the UFC, (the) press conference was canceled due to a series of obstacles beyond our control,” McGregor wrote on X.

“I apologize to my Irish fans and fans around the world for the inconvenience and appreciate all your passion and support. I can’t wait to perform the greatest show of all time in the Octagon.”

According to MMA insider Ariel Helwani, no legal issues or incidents led to the cancellation, prompting further questions about McGregor’s health.

The videos appear to highlight multiple training sessions, but it is unclear when they took place.

The caption consisted of two emojis: a goat and praying hands.

While McGregor’s commitment has been questioned as he is often seen partying, he has never given up on a UFC fight he is committed to.

Helwani also discussed where the fight stands on his show “The MMA Hour.”

‘The fight is still going on. As of now, the fight is still on,” Helwani said.

McGregor’s Instagram post to his 47.6 million followers should only add more optimism to the idea that the fight will go ahead as planned.
