The former lightweight champion has once again retired from the game, his third retirement in the space of four years.
Irish fighter Conor McGregor has announced his retirement UFC saying he is feeling bored.
“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.”
McGregor, 31, revealed his decision through his twitter account, saying
“Hey, guys, I’ve decided to retire from fighting. Thank you all for the amazing memories! What a ride it’s been.
Here is a picture of myself and my mother in Las Vegas post one of my World titles wins! Pick the home of your dreams Mags I love you!
Whatever you desire it’s yours.”
With a total mixed martial of 26 fights, 22 wins and 4 losses, McGregor holds the fastest win to a UFC Championship title when he defeated Jose Aldo in a Featherweight division bout in 2015. McGregor also became the first fighter in the UFC to hold titles in 2 weight division at the same time after beating Eddie Alvarez in a Lightweight Championship in 2016.
In 2017, McGregor had a boxing bout with boxing legend Floyd Mayweather which he lost by K.O in the tenth round. The bout was the second highest pay-per-view (PPV) in the history of North America drawing 4.3 million buys.
Headlining five out of six highest selling UFC pay-per-view events, McGregor is the biggest PPV draw in the history of mixed martial art.
His equally holds the most PPV buys in MMA drawing 2.4m in his bout with Khabib Nurmagomedov in 2018 losing by submission in the fourth round.
Many might be surprised by his decision but some won’t, the former featherweight had previously retired twice in 2016 and 2019.
Will this be the final retirement from the man who claims he wants to be the greatest in UFC?
Time will tell!
