McGregor, 31, last fought at UFC 246 in January, defeating Donald Cerrone. He previously retired in 2016 and 2019.
McGregor abruptly made his latest dubious declaration Sunday morning on his Twitter account, where the former two-division UFC champion also announced his retirement in 2016 and 2019.
Hey guys I’ve decided to retire from fighting.
Thank you all for the amazing memories! What a ride it’s been!

People are already questioning if Conor’s third retirement will last.
Former light heavyweight title contender Alexander Gustafsson retired in June 2019 but announced earlier this month the is coming back at heavyweight. Other fighters like Derrick Lewis, and Anthony Johnson have respectively come back from retirement or announced plans to come back.
Let’s wait and see.
