McGregor’s last fight ended in a devastating defeat to Nurmagomedov at UFC 229. The Dagestan phenom submitted him as he defended his UFC lightweight title.
UFC president Dana White has also shared his thoughts on McGregor’s retirement. He said “He has all the money to retire and enjoy the rest of his life”, he earned it.
“It totally makes sense. If I was him, I would retire too. He’s retiring from fighting, not from working. The whiskey will keep him busy, and I’m sure he has other things he’s working on”.
“He has been so fun to watch. He has accomplished incredible things in this sport. I am so happy for him, and I look forward to seeing him be as successful outside of the octagon as he was in it.”
McGregor retirement message sent shock waves in the wrestling world too… Or is everything planned?
