Conor McGregor’s coach, John Kavanagh, is under the impression that retirement for the former UFC lightweight and featherweight champion is for real.
Of course, many people don’t think the third time’s a charm for the biggest name in the sport of MMA.
In a recent social media video chat recorded by MMA World the SBG Ireland Head Coach stated McGregor is actually done with fighting as far as he knows.
Conor McGregor’s Retirement Is Real
“Is Conor retired? Yes, he is as far as I can tell. That’s what he said, isn’t it?” I can’t convince Conor to do sh*t. Conor will tell Conor what he’s gonna do. And who knows? Who knows what’s gonna happen in the future. But, as for now, he’s retired.” (Transcribed by MMA Junkie).
“The Notorious” suffered his second-ever loss under the UFC banner in October 2018 when Khabib Nurmagomedov submitted him at UFC 229, which marked Khan’s first official title defense as UFC lightweight champion.
In his last fight, he starched Donald Cerrone at the UFC 246 pay-per-view event from the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada on January 18, 2020
McGregor has been inactive over the past few years as his previous bout before Khabib came when he beat Eddie Alvarez at UFC 205 to win the UFC Lightweight Title.
