UFC middleweight fighter Darren Till has shared some comments on the career of UFC megastar Conor McGregor. The Irish sensation is due to return from a severe leg injury as he prepares to step inside the octagon again. Till recently appeared in an interview with the ‘Basket Insiders’ and talked about McGregor, among other things. McGregor has pumped up a lot of muscle and shown his incredible transformation online to his fans and followers on social media. It has been over a year and a half since he last stepped inside the octagon. The fighter also has not picked up a win since January 2020 after his win against Donald Cerrone.

McGregor has lost his last two consecutive fights. He has won just one out of his last four bouts. As such, Darren Till believes that the former double champion may be done with MMA after all his championship wins and the amount of money he made.

He added, “I’m sure he probably wants to come back but deep down he knows life’s different now. I think it’s probably the end for Conor but he’s still the biggest name in the sport.” Till has maintained McGregor’s status as the biggest draw in the history of the sport. He repeated the same sentiments as Paul Felder, believing that the “Notorious” is past his prime.
