McGregor attends the National Hockey League match, at the TD Garden, between the Boston Bruins and the Columbus Blue Jackets, and gives a rousing team talk to the Boston hosts:
Remember, nothing heroic gets done without support, without unity. We must back each other, we must support each other. Before you go out, look left, look right. Know that these people that are with you are your brothers… Boys, I wish you the best…Let’s go Boston Bruins.
The Bruins won a 2-1 in overtime, thanks to a winner from Brad Marchand. Marchand paid tribute to McGregor:
He’s an incredible guy, very energetic. He was humble. He was happy to be here…It was an honor to meet him…It’s something we’ll remember.
McGregor tweets what appears to be a retirement announcement:
Hey guys quick announcement, I’ve decided to retire from the sport formally known as “Mixed Martial Art” today. I wish all my old colleagues well going forward in competition. I now join my former partners on this venture, already in retirement. Proper Pina Coladas on me fellas!
Prosecutors drop charges against McGregor after he allegedly smashed a fan’s phone outside a Miami hotel. Prosecutors in Miami say the victim has stopped cooperating with investigators and has recanted his story. The Miami Herald reports the fan, Ahmed Abdirzak, dropped his civil lawsuit with McGregor after reaching a settlement. Abdirzak had been seeking $15,000 in damages.
Florida assistant state attorney Khalil Madani said that Abdirzak…
has credibility issues as he’s changed his previously sworn testimony…Based on the witness’s credibility issues, his unwillingness to respond to a subpoena and the inability of the witnesses to testify… the State of Florida cannot prove the charges against Mr McGregor beyond a reasonable doubt.
