Neil Seery has had his say on the Conor McGregor retirement saga that appears to have threatened the UFC featherweight champion's ongoing relationship with the promotion.

Seery, who is contracted to the UFC as a flyweight, is preparing for the biggest fight of his career when he takes on fifth-ranked flyweight Kyoji Horiguchi in the Netherlands on May 8.

The 36-year-old was in impressive winner over Jon Delos Reyes at UFC Dublin and a victory in May would propel him up the UFC rankings.

Seery did take time out of his schedule to give his tuppence on the saga between Conor McGregor and the promotion which has seen the UFC featherweight champion pulled from UFC 200 and a rematch with Nate Diaz followign his 'retirement' tweet.

UFC president Dana White claimed that McGregor refused to cut short his Icelandic training camp to take part in media duties and that's why he was pulled.

Seery decided to deliver his own 'ultimatum' on Twitter but his demands seem pretty modest.
