Irishman Conor McGregor martial arts star, 31, announced his retirement without a real motivation, in a Twitter post, on Sunday night.
„Hey guys, I’ve decided to retire from fighting. Thank you all for the great memories! What a trip it was! „ But this is for the third time in four years. The former UFC Champion had declared his resignation as early as 2016 and 2019. It will be for real, now ? Some people expect another tweet. The former UFC champion had already announced his retirement in 2016 and 2019, but resumed his career in each case. In January, McGregor beat American Donald Cerrone in Las Vegas after only 41 seconds of the first round through technical knockouts and collected around $ 80 million for it. He is the most famous cage fighter in the world. As of June 2 2020, he is #8 in the UFC men's pound-for-pound rankings, #4 in the UFC lightweight rankings and #15 in the UFC welterweight rankings.
McGregor is known mostly as a striker and prefers to fight standing up, as opposed to on the ground. He will almost always engage in trash talk and "psychological warfare" against his opponents. A documentary film - Conor McGregor: Notorious – with himself in the role was made in 2017.
