While most people were sleeping, former UFC featherweight and lightweight champion Conor McGregor put out a tweet stating that he’s retired from MMA. Below is the quote from his tweet:
“Hey guys quick announcement, I have decided to retire from the sport officially known as”Mixed Martial Art” today. I need all my coworkers well going in contest. I now join my spouses on this particular venture, currently. Proper Pina Coladas on me fellas!”
At first glance, it’s difficult to take McGregor seriously. After all, this is not the first time. Another time he tweeted something similar came after he was submitted by Nate Diaz at a shocker at UFC 196. Only a couple of months after tweeting he had been back at the cage, winning a majority decision over Diaz in UFC 202. So if McGregor tweets some thing about retiring from MMA, you need to keep in mind he’s pulled this stunt before.
At second glance, though, there could be something more to this. After all, McGregor doesn’t need MMA. It’s only a matter of whether he has that burning fire to step in the cage, because as far as finances go, he is set for life. The Floyd Mayweather boxing superfight in 2017 made McGregor up of $100 million, and that financial windfall help put him up for success with Suitable 12 whiskey. McGregor doesn’t really truly”need” MMA anymore. But he is a competitor, and he probably does not wish to go out on a catastrophic submission loss to Khabib Nurmagomedov in UFC 229 in his final bout, not to mention all of the shenanigans that went along with it.
If anything, this could be a negotiating tactic by McGregor. It is smart for McGregor to capture the eye of MMA fans and media. He has not even fought in almost a year and yet is still talked about more than any other fighter. He is clearly a very wise guy. The UFC has had discussions with McGregor about coming at UFC 239 at a co-main event fight against Nate Diaz, but McGregor was adamant he wants to fight in the main event, and it seems that’s in the crux of his own beef with UFC president Dana White and co.. This could be McGregor posturing and trying to acquire the UFC to call his bluff, but it remains to be seen.
With no McGregor, the UFC will have to proceed and reserve UFC 239 with no as a potential fight. The rumors are that the UFC would like to do Daniel Cormier from Brock Lesnar for the UFC heavyweight title in the main event, and there are plenty of different alternatives for your card including Kamaru Usman vs. Colby Covington for the UFC welterweight title. As much as the fans want to view McGregor return and fight someone like Diaz, as much as it appears like the promotion demands McGregor, they truly don’t, and the UFC’s well-oiled machine will continue to move forwards with or without the Irish superstar.
