Every athlete has the right to decide to quit his or her sport. Having at the top of the career is not easy and puts a lot of pressure, especially when you are a champion. It should have a great fundamental of discipline, effort and determination win. You should also train yourself every day to gain a lot of strength and power. It is a nice thing to think that nowadays, a lot of people get involved in different kind of competition and sports and many of them share and also inspire others. One of the keys to becoming a champion is that you must gain a lot of experiences and true determination from yourself.

Just like Conor McGregor, he has been a winner for the UFC championship a lot of times. However, he began to get tired again and announces in his social media account that he formally decided to retire his sport commonly known as “Mixed Martial Art” today. He also stated and wishes that his colleagues will go forward in the competition. In addition to that, he said that he will join his for partners on this venture who are already in retirement. Conor surely felt sad as he actually decided to end his career in the said sport.

The 30-year-old champion retires with MMA record of 21 wins and four defeats in the whole match since he started. He actually made $30 million for the fight itself and contributed a lot into this sporting industry. Furthermore, this is not the first time he announced that he will retire in his career. He was defeated by Nate Diaz last 2016 and decided to retire young however he returned and fight the same opponent later that same year. And even if his career is over, there are still speculations that he will jump into other combat sports like boxing.

Of course, a lot of fans feels disappointment after Conor stated his decision to the public. He also charged for having a case of three counts of assaults last 2018. He got arrested in Florida after he smashed a fan’s phone. His motivation to continue his career cut out. And even he already quit the sport he used to, there will be other doors open for him to start another chapter and story of life. We maybe don’t know today what will happen next but one sure thing I can say is that everything happens for a reason.
