So Conor McGregor apparently announced his retirement last night.
I have decided to retire young.
Thanks for the cheese.
Catch ya's later.

It has yet to be confirmed whether this is legitimate or just a stunt to get media attention back on him (as if it ever left), but Dana White has confirmed that UFC 200 is not going ahead with McGregor.
Take a look at few of the Twitter reactions to McGregor's tweet below.
I would rather they cancel the luas forever than see Conor McGregor retire from MMA

I bet Dana White is calling Conor McGregor, like a boyfriend blindsided by a Relationship Status Notification. https://t.co/T64nxEOIhC

Conor McGregor is as retired as Jon Snow is dead. Topical tweets only. #Almost420brah

Has Roddy Doyle done an ode to @TheNotoriousMMA yet? The internet would explode beyond possible repair if that landed.
