Wonder if this is a troll or for real?
Conor McGregor, the outspoken UFC fighter who tapped out to Nate Diaz in early March, has, seemingly, abruptly announced his retirement on Twitter:
Conor McGregor Verified account
I have decided to retire young.
Thanks for the cheese.
Catch ya's later.
It had been presumed that McGregor and Diaz would have a rematch at UFC 200 in July; there were already odds on the fight. McGregor was tweeting about training just yesterday.
This tweet came from McGregor’s verified account; who knows whether it was real or a hack, and, if it’s real, if it’s actually permanent. Time shall tell.
This is a developing story and this post will be updated if more information becomes available.
