Despite announcing his retirement, Conor McGregor wants to keep his body in good shape. He was recently spotted training his ass off and his recent action looks like his retirement is just his another publicity stunt.
TMZ released a video of the Notorious sparring in a boxing ring at Fight Club Gym in Miami where he trained some striking and movement drills.
The footage of his training session was leaked just some days after he announced his shocking retirement with the Tweet.
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!

The same day after he announced to step down from the sport, the New York Times reported that the Irishman was in an inquiry for the sexual assault on a woman in Dublin.
Though this is not the first time, the two division champion decided to quit the UFC. Back in 2016, he had made a similar post announcing his departure after he was removed from the UFC 200 fight card.
I have decided to retire young.
Thanks for the cheese.
Catch ya's later.

However, he later returned to the Octagon in August of that year.
