Is Conor McGregor Retiring From UFC?
Is UFC Featherweight champion Conor McGregor retiring?
Unless it’s some sort of joke or crazy PR stunt, it looks like McGregor is pretty much done with MMA. At least, if his latest Twitter post is any indication. Check out the Twitter post below:
I have decided to retire young.
Thanks for the cheese.
Catch ya's later.

McGregor is due to fight Nate Diaz at UFC 200 in a rematch from UFC 196, in which Diaz handed McGregor his first loss, via submission to the rear-naked choke. McGregor was adamant about taking the fight at 170 lbs, in order to recreate the circumstances of his first defeat. But pundits view the move as unwise, and McGregor reportedly made the decision against the advice of his team. As one of the biggest fights of the summer, UFC will be scrambling to find a replacement if McGregor is really done. And Dana White will probably regret having sunken all the money into promoting McGregor as heavily as he has. But hey, we still aren’t entirely sure what’s happening here.
So what do you think? Is McGregor really hanging it up? Or is this just some sort of publicity stunt?
