Did Conor just retire?

Wonder if this is a troll or for real?

http://thebiglead.com/2016/04/19/con...ouncement-ufc/

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
‏@TheNotoriousMMA

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.

If so too bad. Wanted to see Nate drop him again.

Here to take over...

I guess Nate has been here and took over....

Big. Low to UFC if true. Bring in Fedor vs GSP

Jon Jone came back from a Marijuana addiction, Conor McGregor can come back from a perceived lack of attention disorder.

One speculation was the death of Joao Carvalho. Might have got him contemplating what he needs more money for, if he dies getting it.
