MMA superstar known by his moniker ‘The Notorious’, Conor McGregor has announced his retirement from the sport. He took to Twitter to make the announcement, telling fans “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 competition. I now join my former partners on this venture, already in retirement. Proper Pina Coladas on me fellas!”.
McGregor has taken the sport to new heights with his antics both in and out the ring, with controversy never far behind him; he leaves the octagon with a record of 21 wins and four defeats, the last being delivered to him by Khabib Nurmagomedov last October. The Irishman has not fought since. We should take this announcement with a pinch of salt, as McGregor has previously stated he was retiring in 2016.
