“Conor’s never coming back, in my opinion,” Till told SportsLens. “Conor’s struggling to let go. He doesn’t want to let it go. But it’s time to let go. He’s older, he doesn’t train like he used to. He’s got the money and his beautiful kids, and the only problem is that he just does not want to let it go. There’s going to come a day where he realizes he’s fighting with himself and has to let go.“Every recording on Twitter he’s just drunk as f*ck and I’m just crying my eyes out laughing at him. It will take him a while, but he’ll find his peace. My opinion of Conor is you have to respect what he’s done, but it’s time to let go. He’s struggling to let go” (h/t MMA Fighting).In a recent interview, ex-UFC standout Darren Till suggested that Conor McGregor is done in UFC and simply can’t come to terms with the fact that his days as an elite mixed martial artist are behind him.

Still, McGregor insists that a UFC return is imminent while many fight fans and fighters feel like all of the former two-division champ’s competitive juices have evaporated. However, Till does believe it’s possible that Conor McGregor will prove him wrong make a comeback at some point.Despite sitting on the shelf for more than two years, Conor McGregor has continued to dominate the headlines thanks to his never-ending string of callouts and confusing voice notes on X (formerly Twitter). The Irishman has remained insistent that his return would come at the final UFC pay-per-view of the year, but new reports, and comments from the man himself, have seemingly ruled out that possibility. “Maybe he’s not [struggling to let go],” Till said. “Maybe he’s going to come back and prove us all wrong. He might just not be ready in terms of testing or he just wants to keep his name out there and he’s thinking in terms of next year. It’s tough to know. He’s a smarter businessman than most, so you have to trust what he’s doing.”
