“Is that Conor is retired? “Said Kavanagh. “Yes, it is as far as I know. This is what he said, isn’t it? ”
A comment follow-up has suggested that Kavanagh is the only person who could convince McGregor (22-4 MMA, 10-2 UFC) to fight again. Kavanagh, the head coach of SBG Ireland, laughed at this notion and did not agree.
“I can’t convince Conor to do shit,” said Kavanagh. “Conor will tell Conor what he will do. And who knows? Who knows what will happen in the future. But for now, he is retired. ”
McGregor recently participated in the UFC, 246 in January against former challenger in the title lightweight Donald Cerrone. After a 15 month absence from the cage, McGregor has made a triumphant return, finishing Cerrone with strikes at just 40 seconds of the first round.
This victory has given McGregor in the win column after a defeat in battle against the Ukah 229 against Khabib Nurmagomedov in October 2018.
Four months later, on June 6, at the end of the UFC 250, McGregor tweeted that he was walking away from MMA. This was not the first time that McGregor withdrew suddenly on the social networks. The two retreats previous have proven to be short-lived or simply non-existent.
