Don't worry, UFC fans — Conor McGregor is still in the game.
Earlier in the week, the 27-year-old fighter confused fans when he posted a cryptic tweet announcing his retirement.
We later found out the tweet was in response to UFC head Dana White's decision to pull McGregor from his upcoming rematch against Nate Diaz at UFC 200, because he refused to do a promotional press event in Las Vegas.
The Irish athlete finally spoke out about the drama, and while he's "still ready to go for UFC 200," the featherweight champion is more concerned about training for the actual fight than talking about it!
In a lengthy Facebook post on Thursday, the fighter made it clear he wasn't retired, more so just frustrated. He explained:
But new champ Miesha Tate is apparently trying to get her to sit up and take notice!
The MMA women's bantamweight belt-holder is set to defend her new title against Ronda later this year, and she's getting the trash talking started early!
We're not sure if the plan is to psych out the Furious 7 star or get her too angry to think straight, but her recent comments are DEFINITELY meant to sting!
First on Monday she told TMZ:
Guess Ronda Rousey had better things to do?
The MMA fighter wasn't that interested in watching Holly Holm — the one woman to defeat her — defend the Bantamweight title against Miesha Tate at UFC 196 on Saturday night!
That's because instead of watching the fight, Rousey decided she was going to do something a little more low key… like watch professional wrestling at an American Legion Hall in El Lay!
Rousey was spotted in the crowd in Reseda, California, taking in a night of Pro Wrestling Guerrilla's All-Star Weekend 12 — but from what it sounds like, she WAS paying attention to the fight on her phone!
According to reports, right around the time that Tate was choking out Holm in the fifth round for a surprise victory, photos of Rousey checking her phone and smiling surfaced!!!
Ch-ch-check 'em out (below):
Good for you, Ronda Rousey!
The MMA superstar was out and about in El Lay on Monday when the paparazzi caught up with her, and just like the classy woman that she is, Rousey took time to answer some questions and talk candidly about some serious health issues.
Of course, the media wanted to know all about Rousey's recent comments on suicidal thoughts after losing to Holly Holm late last year.
The UFC star didn't hold back, addressing it openly and honestly:
This is so sweet!
After Ronda Rousey revealed earlier this week that she considered killing herself after losing to Holly Holm in an MMA bout last November, the fighter's boyfriend, Travis Browne, has come out with an amazing show of support!
Speaking to reporters, Browne — also a fighter himself — recounted how he helped Rousey get out of that dark mental place post-fight, and why it was a no-brainer for him to shower his partner with love during a very rough time:
