London, March 26
Conor McGregor’s announcement that he is to retire from mixed martial arts (MMA) sent shockwaves around the sporting world on Tuesday, but in a sport that seldom plays by normal rules it could mean his comeback is closer than ever.
On Monday, the 30-year-old said he was in negotiations to fight in July. It was the second time that McGregor had announced on Twitter that he was leaving the sport. That retirement lasted a matter of days. — Reuters
