Conor McGregor announces retirement from MMA

McGregor announces third retirement via Twitter.

Posted: Jun 7, 2020 5:11 PM

For the third time, UFC star Conor Mcgregor has announced that he is retiring from the sport.

Mcgregor's announcement that he is walking away from Mixed Martial Arts came via Twitter just moments after the conclusion of UFC 250 Saturday night.

“Hey guys, I've decided to retire from fighting. Thank you all for the amazing memories! What a ride it’s been!” with a photo attached of him and his mother in Las Vegas post a World Title win.

A very casual way to announce a retirement. Sunday morning McGregor told ESPN that he has lost his excitement for the sport.

This is the third time that the 31 year-old is retiring. He first walked away in 2016, returned and then retired again in April of 2019 and returned to beat Donald Cerrone in January.

UFC President Dana White says that McGregor has his blessing to retire and hinted that the uncertainty and stress of the coronavirus pandemic on the sport may have played a part in his decision.
