Conor McGregor Announces Retirement From MMA

Conor McGregor has announced his official retirement from mixed martial arts.

“Hey guys quick announcement, I’ve decided to retire from the sport formally known as ‘Mixed Martial Art’ today,” the 30-year-old fighter wrote on his Twitter account on Tuesday (March 26). “I wish all my old colleagues well going forward in competition. I now join my former partners on this venture, already in retirement. Proper Pina Coladas on me fellas!”

Just hours before his announcement, Conor went on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon and actually said he was in talks for a fight this coming July.

“My next fight—we’re in talks for July….So, we’ll see what happens,” he said. “A lot of politics and going on. The fight game is a mad game…To my fans, I am in shape, and I am ready.”
