Despite his retirement from MMA, the former two-division UFC champion can’t seem to stay away from the public eye. McGregor once again showed his political side calling for world leaders to demonstrate “responsibility and consistency” during the coronavirus pandemic.
McGregor took to Twitter to demonstrate his displeasure with world leaders.
“Is it too much to hope for responsibility and consistency from our leaders? We expect the men and women in government to be our role models,” McGregor wrote. “If they can’t abide by their own standards to beat the virus, then we need new people in charge. No one is above this.”
This is not the first time that the “Notorious” has complained about Irish and world leaders during the pandemic. Conor has made similar posts on Twitter.
McGregor has also shown his philanthropic side by donating over $1 million in medical supplies to Irish hospitals and has also donated through his rand Proper No 12.
As of now, McGregor remains retired. He announced his retirement in June stating he had grown disinterest toward the current state of MMA.
“The game just does not excite me, and that’s that,” McGregor told ESPN shortly after he announced his retirement on Twitter. “All this waiting around. There’s nothing happening. I’m going through opponent options, and there’s nothing really there at the minute. There’s nothing that’s exciting me.
“I’m a bit bored of the game,” he added. “I don’t know if it’s [because there’s] no crowd. I don’t know what it is. There’s just no buzz for me.”
