Previous UFC two-division champion Conor McGregor claims he’s resigning from MMA.
All of a sudden early Tuesday morning, McGregor (21-4 MMA, 9-2 UFC) posted a message on his Twitter account reporting that he’s finished with “the game formally known as blended military workmanship” and wished his kindred warriors good karma in their future undertakings.
McGregor expressed: “Hello folks speedy declaration, I’ve chosen to resign from the game formally known as ‘Blended Martial Art’ today. I wish all my old partners well going ahead in rivalry. I currently join my previous accomplices on this endeavor, as of now in retirement. Legitimate Pina Coladas on me fellas!”
Only hours after a meeting circulated on “The Tonight Show” with Jimmy Fallon in which McGregor guaranteed he was as of now consulting with the UFC about a July come back to the octagon, “The Notorious” posted the message via web-based networking media. Regardless of whether it’s a genuine retirement or only an influence strategy stays to be seen. A UFC official observed the tweet to be “peculiar” in an instant message to MMA Junkie.
McGregor broadly declared he was hanging up his gloves with an “a debt of gratitude is in order for the cheddar” tweet in 2016 when arrangements for a rematch with Nate Diaz at UFC 200 turned sour, however he at last battled a little more than one month later at UFC 202.
Talking with Barstool Sports’ “My Mom’s Basement” web recording Monday, UFC president Dana White said it’s dependably a test to book a matchup with McGregor. This could be a piece of that.
“Each time I manage Conor there’s continually something,” White said. “There’s continually something to manage, and we get it made sense of.”
McGregor’s half year suspension for his job in the scandalous UFC 229 fight is set to be lifted April 6. Not long ago, McGregor was captured on solid arm theft accusations in Miami for purportedly crushing and after that taking a fan’s telephone outside a club.
