Conor McGregor has apparently retired, just minutes after Amanda Nunes’ dominant win over Felicia Spencer at UFC 250 on Saturday night he announced his retirement on Twitter.
The Irishman says he has had enough of all the waiting around and the delays between fights in UFC, “The game just does not excite me, and that’s that,” said McGregor.
Dana White, UFC president, said he hadn’t talked with McGregor before his tweet, and that someone had shown him the retirement announcement for the first time after it was live.
While it may have shocked some of the sports world, White wasn’t that surprised. “That’s Conor,” White said after UFC 250 in Las Vegas. “You know how Conor works. That’s how he does things.”
