Conor McGregor teases his retirement from MMA again

Once again, Conor McGregor claims to be hanging up the MMA gloves in an incident that has happened four times in the past six years. Is this time REALLY forever?

As the Talking Heads once sang, “The way it always was. Just like it always was.”

Conor McGregor has once again decided to open up his Twitter app and try to cause a stir in the MMA world by announcing that he’s done with the sport…or has he?

The former division ufc Champion tweeted out around 5:00 p.m. ET on Aug. 4 thanking the sport he’s helped take to new heights. It seemed to be a message that he would never step in the cage again.

Just 42 minutes later, McGregor posted another tweet saying, “I’ll never let go, Jack!” Quote from 1997 titanic Movie. That tweet combined with the other has now got the MMA world to see this as a near-immediate coming out of retirement or just plain confused.

This isn’t McGregor’s first instance of announcing his retirement from the Octagon via social media. In 2016, McGregor announced his retirement from MMA after getting into hot water with UFC President Dana White and being promoted for not showing up for a media event leading up to his rematch with Nate Diaz.

He would retire just a day later.

The second retirement came in March 2019 when he was suspended by the Nevada State Athletic Commission for the post-fight events of his UFC 229 fight with Khabib Nurmagomedov.

That retirement, which lasted just over a week, would come with more controversy as a eventful year began for McGregor, who has found himself in legal trouble over allegations of sexual assault, smashing a fan’s phone and beating an elderly gentleman in a pub was advised.

The third resignation came in June 2020 when he posted his tweet immediately after UFC 250. At the time, the UFC was having negotiation problems with many of its top stars, including Jorge Masvidal and Jon Jones.

McGregor has not been seen in the UFC since breaking his leg and losing to Dustin Poirier in their trilogy fight at UFC 264 in July 2021.
