While most people were sleeping, former UFC featherweight and lightweight champion Conor McGregor put out a tweet saying that he’s retired from MMA. Below is the full quote from his tweet:
“Hey guys quick announcement, I’ve decided to retire from the game formally called”Mixed Martial Art” today. I wish all my coworkers that are old well going forward in contest. I join my former partners on this venture, currently in retirement. Proper Pina Coladas on me fellas!”
At first glance, it is difficult to choose McGregor seriously. After all, this isn’t the first time he has said he’s retired from MMA. The other time he tweeted something similar came after he was submitted by Nate Diaz in a shocker in UFC 196. Just a few months after tweeting he was back in the cage, winning a majority decision over Diaz at UFC 202. So whenever McGregor tweets something about retiring from MMA, you need to keep in mind he’s pulled this stunt before.
At second glance, however, there could be something more to this. In the end, McGregor doesn’t need MMA. It is only a matter of whether or not he has that burning fire to step in the cage, because as far as finances go, he’s set for life. The Floyd Mayweather boxing superfight in 2017 made McGregor upwards of $100 million, which monetary windfall help put him up for success with Suitable 12 whiskey. McGregor does not really truly”need” MMA anymore. But he’s a rival, and he likely does not want to go out on a devastating submission loss to Khabib Nurmagomedov in UFC 229 in his last bout, and of course all the shenanigans that went along with it.
If anything, this could be a strategy by McGregor. It’s smart for McGregor to capture the attention of MMA fans and media. He has not even fought in nearly a year and yet is still talked about more than almost any other fighter. He is clearly a very smart guy. The UFC has had discussions with McGregor about returning at UFC 239 at a co-main event bout against Nate Diaz, but McGregor was adamant he would like to fight in the main event, and it appears that is at the crux of his beef with UFC president Dana White and co.. This could all 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 book UFC 239 without him as a possible fight. The rumors are that the UFC wants to do Daniel Cormier from Brock Lesnar for the UFC heavyweight title in the main event, and there are plenty of other options for the card including Kamaru Usman vs. Colby Covington for the UFC welterweight title. Just as the fans need to view McGregor come back and fight someone like Diaz, as far as it appears like the advertising needs McGregor, they truly don’t, along with the UFC’s well-oiled machine will probably continue to move forwards with or without the Irish superstar.
