Conor McGregor cancels planned movie appearance to focus on fighting
Conor McGregor means business after losing to Nate Diaz at UFC 196 earlier this month.
According to a report, McGregor has cancelled his planned appearance in a Vin Diesel movie so he can concentrate on fighting.
As I mentioned on @SportsCenter, I'm told McGregor has canceled his planned appearance in Vin Diesel's XXX film. Doesn't want distraction.

McGregor was set to appear in “xXx: The Return of Xander Cage,” which is due out next year.
McGregor has fought 2-3 times a year since 2012. With one fight under his belt already this year, it’s possible for him to fight another two times in 2016. There are already rumors about him facing Diaz in a rematch at UFC 200 in July. There has also been talk about him potentially rematching against Jose Aldo, which would be awesome after this trash talk exchange.
