Connor Mcgregor has resigned from MMA!
As we know so far Connor Mcgregor has settled back from his career in MMA, after releasing the following tweet
McGregor then went on the say "I wish all my old colleagues well going forward in competition. I now join my former partners on this venture, already in retirement. Proper Pina Coladas on my fellas!"
Before McGregor made it official, there were already indications that he was going to be resigning from MMA. As recently as last month, figures were predicting that he could fight in 2019 once again, maybe even twice, but McGregor's career was already overshadowed by his behaviour outside of the ring.
Earlier in March, McGregor was arrested! This was in Florida and he was charged with robbery and criminal mischief when police state that he stole the cellphone of someone trying to take his photo. Here is McGregor's mugshot from his arrest
What was his most recent fight?
Connor's most recent fight was in October with Khabib Nurmagomedov, who beat McGregor. Later on, after that fight, a brawl had burst out which created implications for Connor giving him a six-month suspension which is due to expire on April 7.
Dana White, the UFC kingpin/boss said that McGregor's retirement "totally makes sense" from text messages sent to ESPN journalist Brett Okamoto, shown below

But McGregor still has an income from his Proper No. Twelve whiskey business, which is still keeping him financially stable. Dana White said "He has the money to retire and his whiskey is KILLIN it. It totally makes sense. If I was him I would retire too. He's retiring from fighting. Not from working. The whiskey will keep him busy I'm sure he has other things he's working on."
