He added a comment, “Me and all you pull out merchants are not the same! You are bit*h made and I’m now steel. This game has just begun. Know that all my enemies are of similar age and experience and for this reason, I hereby declare this war forever! McGregor Forever.”

Later, McGregor posted a picture of his training with the caption, “They say time and time again that my accumulated wealth has quelled my fire. They are wrong.”

Conor McGregor: Rise or Downfall

‘The Notorious’ (22-6) has competed against some of the greatest fighters in the UFC. Furthermore, the Dublin native has beaten notable fighters like Nate Diaz, Jose Aldo, Dustin Poirier, Max Holloway, and Eddie Alvarez.

Unfortunately, since his defeat against the former lightweight champion Khabib Nurmagomedov in 2018, McGregor has won only one fight. He is currently on a two-fight skid and many believe that the former two-division champion has had enough in the sport.
