Conor McGregor retires for the third time in four years

Former featherweight and lightweight champion, Conor McGregor, has announced his retirement from UFC for the third time in four years.

The 31-year-old Irish powerhouse revealed his retirement on his Twitter account, which is coincidentally where he also announced his retirement in 2016 and 2019.

“Hey guys, I’ve decided to retire from fighting. Thank you all for the amazing memories! What a ride it’s been!” he stated

In an interview with ESPN, McGregor revealed that he has become bored of UFC after watching recent behind-closed-doors fights, but admitted that he’ll see what the future holds.

“I’m a bit bored of the game, I watched the last show – the [Tyron] Woodley v [Gilbert] Burns show… I’m just not excited about the game. I don’t know if it’s no crowd. I don’t know what it is. There’s just no buzz for me.”

“We’ll see what the future holds. But for right now, for the immediate future, 2020, all the best to it.” He added
