The UFC President Dana White commented on the new development and seems to be taking the Former champion seriously.
“He has the money to retire, and his whiskey is KILLIN’ it,” White said in a statement obtained by MMA Junkie. “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, and I’m sure he has other things he’s working on. He has been so fun to watch. He has accomplished incredible things in this sport. I am so happy for him, and I look forward to seeing him be as successful outside of the octagon as he was in it.”
Conor McGregor was last seen in the Octagon in October against UFC Lightweight Champion Khabib at UFC 229 and has since been on suspension for his role in the Post Fight brawl.
The suspension will be lifted on April 6th but whether McGregor is serious with his message, is still verv unclear.
