Conor McGregor accepts Ramos’s invite
McGregor quickly responded to Ramos’s gesture by posting a video of him scoring a few goals against the keeper. Ramos invited The Notorious one for a grueling training with the “Los Blancos”.
Conor has publicly called out the UFC over the past few months and blamed them for his early retirement. Fans have been itching to see him make a return to the octagon.
Also, with the current pandemic posing several hurdles for his return, it’s unlikely he’ll compete this year.
Many speculate McGregor might not return to the octagon given his various businesses and what he’s achieved in the octagon. However, fight fans are hoping to see the Irishman lace up the gloves yet again.
