For all the fans wondering where Gregor Gillespie has been, the fighter himself has confirmed that he won’t be leaving the UFC anytime soon!
Gregor Gillespie, the self-proclaimed fisherman has been out of the octagon for quite some time now. The lightweight prospect who had all eyes on him while he fought inside the octagon has been guilty of being inactive with his fighting career. Recently, the fighter was removed from the rankings and fans were indeed speculating that Gillespie was cut from the roster.
However, the fighter himself has come out to the public and confirmed his position with the UFC. “I am removed from the RANKINGS…Not from the organization,” confirmed Gregor in his recent social media post. “I am NOT GOING ANYWHERE! The UFC has always been great to me! 100% class!”
“It is not their fault that I don’t have a fight. They have offered me plenty of fights,” said Gillespie taking the blame off of UFC. Gillespie posted a series of tweets explaining his situation. “The Gift” last fought in the UFC at UFC Vegas 26 in 2021 May. It has been more than a year since his presence in the octagon.
Gregor Gillespie reveals he will only fight top-ranked fighters
Gregor Gillespie has gone 7-1 in the UFC with his only loss coming against Kevin Lee, who is now been released from the UFC roster. His last fight was against Carlos Diego Ferreira, who he knocked out in the very second round of the fight. Gillespie is on a mission to fight only top-ranked fighters.
“I have accepted all and any that were ranked ahead of me,” reminded Gillespie of his history of not accepting fights. “I am on a mission to fight the top guys with the lowest number next to their name to get close to the belt. Fighting guys ranked behind me isn’t the way to do it, but I also understand sitting for a while isn’t either.”
Gillespie has called out the likes of Michael Chandler, Tony Ferguson, Rafael Dos Anjos, and many other top-ranked contenders for his next fight. Who do you think Gregor Gillespie should fight next?
