At 1:36 am this morning, Conor McGregor announced that we was hanging up his MMA gloves again. He’d done this once before, in 2006, during difficult negotiations for UFC 200. Now, McGregor appeared on The Tonight Show las night and spoke about difficult negotiations once again.
“My next fight, we’re in talks for July. We’ll see what happens, a lot of politics going on,” McGregor told Tonight Show host, Jimmy Fallon. “The fight game is a mad game. Again, like I said, I am in shape, and I am ready.
“I don’t necessarily need to fight. I am set for life. My family is set for life. We are good, but I am eager to fight. We’ll see what happens, I’m just staying ready.”
So, this tweet really makes you wonder if he is, in fact, retiring this time, or if its another ploy.
McGregor had recently stated he wanted his shares in the ownership of the UFC too, so, the ball is in the UFC’s court. It remains to be seen if this is actually the end for Conor McGregor in MMA as a fighter.
