More On McGregor’s Retirement
Conor McGregor announcing his retirement comes just at the conclusion of UFC 250.
"The game just does not excite me, and that's that," said McGregor. "All this waiting around. There's nothing happening. I'm going through opponent options, and there's nothing really there at the minute. There's nothing that's exciting me.”
McGregor is the second major name in fighting that has left the UFC. Jon Jones announced leaving the UFC due to contract issues with UFC head Dana White.
Although it is a sad time for UFC fans with legends seemingly leaving the league, sports bettors will continue to see betting lines for major UFC events at online sportsbooks and fighters going forward.
