‘What a ride’: UFC’s McGregor says he’s retiring

UFC star Conor McGregor said on social media late Saturday night that he’s retiring from fighting.

McGregor (22-4), of Ireland, is coming off a 40-second knockout victory over Donald “Cowboy” Cerrone in January.

UFC president Dana White told ESPN last week that he has not talked with the former two-weight champion about his next fight.

McGregor, 31, has “accepted” everything from a boxing match against retired boxer Oscar De La Hoya to a superfight against MMA legend Anderson Silva in recent weeks. He’s also teased a return to the Octagon in July and singled out newly crowned interim lightweight champion Justin Gaethje as a potential foe.
