It led to Conor McGregor answering one of the fan questions on his Instagram stories about when his next fight is going to be. He remarked, “Still holding hope for June 29. Lack of action on it, however, is now causing lack of enthusiasm. I need a decision soon. I am the most tested athlete under this new regime. Yet no date to fight.”
