Last week, we got word that a professional fighters association had been formed. The association already has support from some of the biggest names in the business, and Conor McGregor couldn't resist giving his two cents.
"It's important to bunch together and support each other," McGregor said during a media event at a gym in Las Vegas. "It's a dangerous, crazy business we are in. We get in and risk everything. I have witnessed firsthand how these fighters risk it all."
While that sounds supportive of the idea, McGregor did add that now was not the right time for him to get involved.
"Maybe in the future," McGregor said. "Right now, I have got to focus on myself. That might be selfish, but this is the position I'm in right now. I have a lot going on. I've gotta focus on my own self right now. But in the future, maybe I will help spearhead something like that. If it is presented correctly. I wouldn't just jump in if it wasn't gonna be done right.
"It is important to bunch together and support each other. It's a dangerous, crazy business we are in. We get in and risk everything. I have witnessed firsthand how these fighters risk it all."
McGregor is probably referring to sitting cage side for a fight where one of the athletes later died from his injuries. Right now though, he isn't focusing on that, or the fighter's association, only on his rematch with Nate Diaz.
McGregor is poised to face Diaz this weekend at UFC 202.
