Conor McGregor, the renowned MMA fighter, recently expressed his deep disappointment on Twitter regarding the news of a hospital in Dublin, Ireland. The construction company responsible for the project has raised additional complaints, amounting to over 600 million euros, of which only 13 million euros have been received so far. The National Children’s Hospital construction has faced significant delays, with the initial estimated cost of 1.4 billion euros in 2018. However, there are concerns that the final cost could reach 2 billion euros. The project management has been entrusted to Kroll, a leading company specializing in consulting and construction dispute services. McGregor called it “pathetic” and voiced concerns about the prolonged cost escalation and unresolved complaints. The video attached to the tweet shows his frustration.
In another related UFC news, McGregor’s disappointing performance at UFC 257 is believed to be the reason that Khabib Nurmagomedov will not return to the UFC. Nurmagomedov’s retirement in 2020 left many fans disappointed. Although he initially claimed he would not come back, there is still a possibility if an appealing opportunity arises in the lightweight division. In a recent interview, Nurmagomedov’s long-time coach, Javier Mendez, revealed that even after retirement, the UFC continues to pursue his comeback, and he remains in the USADA testing pool. Mendez disclosed that at UFC 257, Nurmagomedov was waiting for something extraordinary to happen to push for his return, but unfortunately, nothing came about.
It seems that Nurmagomedov likes to face opponents like McGregor or Dustin Poirier, but after witnessing how the fight played out, his enthusiasm has dwindled. McGregor, known for his controversial actions and statements, has recently faced allegations of rape, but he was seen with his unwed partner and children, showing a different side to his public image. These developments in the MMA world have sparked widespread interest and discussions among fans and critics alike.
