Conor McGregor’s latest retirement is being taken with a pinch of salt, as Paddy Power rate it odds-on that The Notorious fights in UFC again (2/5).
There’s also some excitement around the fact that the Irishman has retired seemingly in time for Wrestlemania 35– it’s evens he appears at the WWE’s showcase event.
While it’s also fairly short odds that he returns to boxing, where he appeared to hold his own against Floyd Mayweather. It’s 15/8 he fights another professional boxing match.
Hey guys quick announcement, I’ve decided to retire from the sport formally known as “Mixed Martial Art” today.
I wish all my old colleagues well going forward in competition.
I now join my former partners on this venture, already in retirement.
Proper Pina Coladas on me fellas!

Spokesman Paddy Power said: “I’m not saying that McGregor is full of bluster, but we’re definitely expecting the return of the Mc some time very soon.
“I really do hope, though, that it’s via a brief sojourn in WWE. And then one big send-off UFC bout, ideally in Dublin.”
WHAT WILL MCGREGOR DO NOW?
- 2/5 Fight in the UFC again
- Evens To appear in Wrestlemania 35
- 15/8 To have a professional boxing bout
- 33/1 To have a UK No.1 single
- 150/1 To win an Oscar
