In an unexpected turn of events, Conor McGregor has opted out of all media obligations for UFC 303, including the highly anticipated press conference scheduled for this afternoon at Dublin's 3Arena. UFC CEO Dana White and representatives from ESPN were already on site, suggesting that Sunday's developments were substantial enough to warrant McGregor's sudden withdrawal.

McGregor's opponent, Michael Chandler, was reportedly ready to depart before being grounded, adding another layer of intrigue to the situation.

So far, there has been no official word from McGregor or any other involved parties. Sun Sport's Chisanga Malata reported that McGregor also skipped media duties yesterday. This isn't the first time "Notorious" has retreated from the spotlight; he has previously withdrawn from promotional activities and even threatened retirement before major events.

The lack of communication leaves fans and analysts speculating about the reasons behind McGregor's decision. Theories range from contract disputes and possible injuries to issues related to drug testing. As UFC continues to address the matter, the future of the UFC 303 pay-per-view main event, a high-stakes fight with significant financial implications, remains uncertain. Fans eagerly await clarity from White and the UFC team on the fate of this headline event.
