Mixed Martial Artist Conor McGregor announced via Twitter that his retiring.
Is he really?
“Hey, guys I’ve decided to retire from fighting. Thank you all for the amazing memories! What a ride it’s been!” McGregor tweeted over the weekend.
“Here is a picture of myself and my mother in Las Vegas post one of my World title(s) wins! Pick the home of your dreams Mags I love you! Whatever you desire it’s yours,” he added.
The former two-division UFC World Champion, also known as “The Notorious,” had done this retirement stunt before.
In March 2019, he announced through his social media platform that he is retiring but in January 2020 he fought American fighter Donald “Cowboy” Cerrone in Las Vegas, Nevada.
McGregor won against Cerrone with a technical knockout.
In 2016, he also tweeted that he wanted to retire young.
But he traded the octagon for the ring in 2017 when he fought boxing legend, Floyd Mayweather Jr., also in Las Vegas.
It was considered as the most anticipated, and high profile, boxing debut of all time for Mcgregor.
The Irishman McGregor lost by a 10th round stoppage.
It was also regarded as one of the richest bouts in boxing history.
Speaking of Mayweather.
Just recently McGregor also tweeted that his rematch with Mayweather is “inevitable.”
McGregor ranked 8th on the UFC pound-for-pound list, is notorious for his “click-bait” and judging by the trend: he is telegraphing a big fight with an opponent in a year from now, or so.
We just have to wait.
But he will certainly fight.
