Irish superstar Conor McGregor is the biggest name in the UFC and he dropped a cryptic tweet on Monday hinting at a possible departure from the promotion in the future.

The tweet came after “Notorious” shared a link to his McGregor FAST gloves for mixed martial arts.

A fan tweeted to McGregor, saying that renowned boxing and MMA trainer Trevor Wittman has designed gloves to help decrease the chance of eye pokes in the cage. They also claimed that the UFC wants their own glove.

“UFC want the gloves to themselves,” they wrote. “A lot of good glove designers like Trevor Wittman don’t want the gloves tied to one organisation, they want they them to be available to everyone.”

McGregor then replied to the fan, “But Trevor wittman has never fought MMA tho? You need guys with real experience. Case in point the king of this s***. Me.”

Then, McGregor proclaimed: “And F*** other organisations. I’m with the UFC.”

He then followed up that tweet with a cryptic statement: “For now anyway.”
