UFC poster boy Conor McGregor is known for some pretty outlandish statements via social media but his latest tweet has to be seen to be believed.
Irish MMA fans will be hoping, however, that the Dubliner’s dramatic announcement was just a wind-up because if not this is one of the most shocking stories to hit Irish sport this year.
I have decided to retire young.
Thanks for the cheese.
Catch ya’s later.

While the Irishman’s facetious ways are well known by now, we are just hoping this post is nothing more than another McGregor prank, with the Crumlin native scheduled to fight Nate Diaz at UFC 200 this July.
Alternatively, McGregor could simply be suggesting that he will retire young but not immediately. In fact he has stated as much in previous occasions in the past. However, the casual ‘catch ya’s later’ sign off does suggest that he is referring to the here and now.
