If what UFC president Dana White had to say following UFC on ESPN 11 on Saturday night in Las Vegas means anything, perhaps it is different. He flatly stated that the Irish superstar has quit the game.
“No (contact with McGregor). Conor McGregor is retired,” White told ESPN’s Brett Okamoto.
McGregor tweeted his retirement following Amanda Nunes’s recent victory at UFC 250 on June 6. He later explained to ESPN’s Ariel Helwani why he decided to retire.
