UFC star Conor McGregor tweeted that he is retiring from the Octagon on Saturday night.
McGregor is now 31 years old having a 22-4 record in mixed martial arts. Until Jan 18, he scored a first-round TKO victory over Donald “Cowboy” Cerrone in UFC 246.
“Hey guys I’ve decided to retire from fighting.”McGregor tweeted on Saturday night
Strange as it might seem for his retirement, McGregor is still interested in joining a fight. He tweeted that he would have a fight with Anderson Silva on May 28.
UFC president Dana White said McGregor’s fight with Gaethje and Khabib Nurmagomedov might be one of the best games to fight for the winner of the title bout.
