UFC superstar, Conor McGregor, is reportedly taking a year off after UFC 205 in order to spend more time with his girlfriend.
Although his break is fairly long, media reports suggest that it is possible he may return for a “mega money fight”. McGregor is due to officially make the announcement after his fight against Eddie Alvarez.
Sources close to the Irishman have stated he believes that now is the correct time to settle down with his girl (Dee Devlin):
“He is now “determined to take time out. After UFC 205 is the perfect time to start. He’s telling people he wants time out. It’s unlikely to be permanent, but the time is right to step back for a while. He knows that if he wins UFC 205 he can always come back in a year or two for a mega money fight.”
