BREAK: Conor McGregor announces retirement from combat


Shortly after the incredible UFC 250 that captivated fans, former Division 2 champion Conor McGregor dropped an unexpected bomb. The Irishman went to Twitter and posted a post that made fans, analysts and the sporting world in general into a frenzy. “Notorious” appeared on Twitter shortly after the Amanda Nunes vs Felicia Spencer fight. Here, he revealed to the world that he was moving away from professional fighting.

Competitor Featherweight tweeted, Hey guys, I decided to withdraw from the fight. Thank you all for the incredible memories! What a ride it was! Here is a photo of me and my mother in Las Vegas after one of my world title victories! Choose the house of your dreams Mags I love you! Everything you want is yours ”

While this certainly blows things up in the featherweight division, fans cannot be blamed for being skeptical of the announcement. One fan even tweeted a collection of previous “notorious” retreats.

The first took place on April 19, 2016, where “Notorious” stated that he had decided to retire at a young age.

Conor McGregor 4 months after his first “retirement”

The tweet came a few weeks after calling on Nate Diaz at UFC 196. However, only 4 months later, he returned and avenged his defeat, before beating Eddie Alvarez to win the UFC lightweight championship while keeping the featherweight championship. . At the time, he became the only fighter in UFC history to hold 2 belts simultaneously.

Later, he tweeted about walking away on March 26 of last year. He said he was retiring “Sport officially called” mixed martial arts “today. “

“Notorious” later returned from retirement and returned to UFC 246 and defeated Donald Cerrone in the first round.

UFC President Dana White scorned retirement last time. It remains to be seen how he reacts to it this time.

“Notorious” is the highest paid fighter in the history of the UFC and can certainly get away from the sport without having to worry about himself financially.

What do you think of Conor McGregor’s latest Tweet? Is he looking for attention or is he seriously considering retiring?
