Conor McGregor’s unretirement announcement has received a positive response

Overwhelming support

Tom Victor

That felt like the longest 44 hours ever.

Less than two full days after announcing his retirement, Conor McGregor has announced that he is not retired. Simple, right?

Well, perhaps not, given the length and detail of the 27-year-old’s explanation of the situation.

Since announcing that “I can not dance for you this time,” the response has broadly been one of support from fans, whether they have followed him since the early pre-UFC days or become converts more recently.
