In a short message, McGregor said he is retiring from MMA, adding: “I wish all my old colleagues well going forward in competition.” Some fans are pointing out that McGregor also announced his retirement in 2016.
What a run and what a charismatic guy who had the mouth and flair of a Floyd Mayweather and Ric Flair. But is this a ploy to sell fights? Is he going to pull a swerve soon and announce a fight and everyone will make a big deal and say he’s coming out of retirement? Possibly, but could he end up at WrestleMania?
We have seen this before if everyone remembers when he made a similar tweet in 2016.
I’m not quite sure if I’m convinced about this announcement, however at the same time I wouldn’t be too surprised he’s doing well in the whiskey industry. Time will tell if we have truly seen the last of Conor McGregor in the octagon or the boxing ring?. More to come, Subscribe Below!
