June 6th marked the date of UFC 250, but the headlines from the night were not centring around the action inside the Octagon.
Instead, it was Conor McGregor grabbing all the attention, despite not even being a participant in the event. The Irishman took to Twitter to announce his third retirement in just four years, inevitably sparking frenzy from his mass online following.
Although the news has been met with some skepticism, given that this publicity stunt has paid off in the past not once, but twice before, some fans have speculated whether he will ever be stepping inside the cage again. His biggest foe Khabib Nurmagomedov, is occupied with Justin Gaethje, Kamaru Usman also has his hands tied with Gilbert Burns, and a highly-anticipated fight with Jorge Masvidal has made no progressive steps.
All of the above has subsequently led to McGregor announce his retirement, not over money dispute or politics, but because there are no 'tempting' bouts for him to take. On the back of such news, we've taken a look into Paddy Power's Conor McGregor retirement odds.
