Is Conor McGregor truly done with MMA?
Whether you believe the retirement announcement from “The Notorious” or not (after all, he has done this before), it’s the kind of news that always gets people talking and that definitely includes his peers in the sport.
As expected, UFC lightweight champion Khabib Nurmagomedov chimed in, and you can check out some of the other reactions, many of which were written with a decidedly tongue-in-cheek tone.
