In a move that surely won't stick, Conor McGregor has retired again.
The former UFC Featherweight and Lightweight Champion announced his latest retirement Sunday morning following UFC 250. He'd not fought since beating Donald Cerrone earlier this year, but question marks had surrounded his future.

This is far from the first time McGregor has retired. He did it in April 2016 with his now infamous "thanks for the cheese" tweet.

Thanks for the cheese.
Catch ya's later.
McGregor then did it again in 2019, before ultimately returning to the cage this year.

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!
If this is it for McGregor -- and it isn't -- he'll retire with a 22-4 record, and a unique distinction of owning wins across three UFC divisions.
