‘The Notorious’ Conor McGregor suffered the first knockout loss of his career against Dustin ‘The Diamond‘ Poirier in the main event of UFC 257.

He has been a phenomenon inside and outside fighting and has taken the UFC to lofty heights.

What’s next for Conor McGregor?

What’s in the future for the superstar remains to be seen as he has now lost 3 of his last 6 outings inside the Octagon. His power, precision, and speed just don’t look the same as his prime self. ‘The Notorious’ has achieved it all in the sport and in life. So, fighting anymore is not a mandate for him.

But, he’s still a supreme athlete, and the competitor in him wants to feel the adrenaline rush of stepping inside the Octagon. Inactivity just can’t be an option against this level of opposition, no matter how supreme one is as a fighter. So, McGregor either has to be as active as he was before, or he should think of hanging the gloves up.
