Former two-division UFC champion Conor McGregor announced his retirement from the sport of Mixed Martial Arts a few months ago.

While he is retired, he is very much active on social media and he will also be taking part in a charity event later this year. He will be amongst the athletes taking part in a 180km water voyage with Princess Charlene of Monaco.

Conor McGregor was present in Monaco along with his girlfriend Dee Devlin and his kids. He took part in a water bike race. In a highly competitive race, the Irish superstar beat Princess Charlene.

Princess Charlene is a Zimbabwean-South African former Olympic swimmer and the Princess consort of Monaco as the wife of Prince Albert II.

It’s not the first time that the Irishmen met with the Royals from Monaco. The connection goes back to 2016 when McGregor met Princess Charlene’s brother Gareth Wittstock.

The Court of Monaco and his team dropped by the beach house last week! Nice to meet you Gareth my man!’ Conor McGregor wrote on Facebook.

In a social media post, McGregor wrote that the charity ride will be 24-hours long. The race will take place on 12 and 13 September. It will feature two teams of four internationally renowned athletes take turns to ‘cycle’ 180km from Calvi, in Corsica, to Monaco.

A Great day racing the water bikes with Princess Charlene of Monaco. A phenomenal athlete and Olympian, we are teaming up for a 180km voyage in September to raise awareness in water safety. I cannot wait!

We will be utilising my training under the McGregor F.A.S.T program to excel on these mounted water bike devices, which are incredibly good! It is like Freedom out there! Thank you for the great day for my family Your Highness.’ Conor McGregor said.

The entire race will benefit the foundation run by Princess Charlene of Monaco and it will be used to raise awareness for programs like ‘Learn to Swim’ and ‘Water Safety’.

Conor McGregor vs Justin Gaethje was close to being done

During the Instagram live session earlier this month, John Kavanagh stated that he if McGregor does decide to return to the UFC, he would like to see him fight Gaethje, Diaz Trilogy and Khabib rematch.

Three fights I would like to see, I’ll give you my top three. [It] would be Gaethje, I would love that fight, it would be awesome. Diaz, the trilogy, and [the] Khabib rematch,” he explained. “They would be the three fights I would be very interested in.”

I think the Gaethje fight is probably the best fight I could imagine because he has the style that really matches well with Conor,” Kavanagh said. “Gaethje likes to march forward. He sits down on his shots, he throws heavy shots. He doesn’t seem to care about being hit, he likes coming forward. Conor’s always done very well as a counter fighter. Although he does walk forward, he responds to people’s attacks very well.”



It was close to being done,” Kavanagh claimed (via-MMA World). “It’s kinda sad now that it didn’t happen. We have obviously the coronavirus and how everything went with the world. I think we could’ve been getting ready for that fight any week now if things hadn’t have happened the way they did. But here we are, so all we can do is speculate.”
