Conor McGregor wrote, “Hey guys quick announcement, I’ve decided to retire from the sport formally known as ‘Mixed Martial Art’ today. I wish all my old colleagues well going forward in the competition. I now join my former partners on this venture, already in retirement. Proper Pina Coladas on me fellas!”

Responding to the news, UFC President Dana White revealed to ESPN that he is with Conor McGregor’s decision to retire.

“He has the money to retire and his whiskey is killing it. It totally makes sense. If I was him, I would retire too.”

White added, “He’s retiring from fighting. Not from working. The whiskey will keep him busy and I’m sure he has other things he’s working on. He has been so fun to watch!!! He has accomplished incredible things in this sport. I am so happy for him and I look forward to seeing him be as successful outside of the octagon as he was in it.”

Conor McGregor’s retirement will be really surprising, considering his last two UFC fights consisted of a boxing match against Floyd Mayweather followed by an infamous fight against Khabib Nurmagomedev that resulted in a fight after the match was over. Conor McGregor lost both the matches and was suspended for six months by UFC for the ugly post-match spat.

“I am thankful for the Nevada athletic commissions fair assessment and handling of the brawl incident. It was not my intention to land the final blow of the night on my opponent’s blood relative. It’s just how it played out. I look forward to competing again soon,” McGregor tweeted, responding to the suspension.

Conor McGregor Has Retired Before

Conor received huge payouts from both the fights and is among the most popular fighters in the sport. He was endorsed by major brands and also started his own whiskey. However, this doesn’t mean that he’s gone for good.

Almost three years back, McGregor tweeted about his retirement after he was defeated by Nate Diaz in UFC 196.

“I have decided to retire young. Thanks for the cheese. Catch ya’s later.”

Conor McGregor returned after five months and defeated Nate Diaz in a rematch.
