    Conor's coach has tweeted out pretty much the same thing.

    Ariel Helwani has also tweeted that multiple sources are adamant that this is not a joke or a hoax. WTF is going on?

    :(

    I dont see it being a giant joke if helwani is tweeting it.

    Some are saying he might be contractually obligated to fight at ufc 200.
    But idk. If he decides now to get out, he has a career for him in other things because of his charisma. But this shits depressing.

    Dude is the most popular and biggest star in mma today. Hes just so damn fun to watch.

    If this is true, its one of three things IMO: Major injury (knee), PEDs test, or seeing that fighter get killed in the cage really fucked him up mentally.

    DFW must be having a coronary right now. He's probably looking up and down on McGoat's contract.

    You can't fucking retire. That's fucking illegal, you goof!"

    Gsp is really going to have the ufc over a barrel if this is true. Without mcgregor diaz the card is lackluster for monumental event. Theyd need gsp to save it

    Supposedly Conor was in Iceland training with Gunnar. Reporters asked him about his tweet and stated, "fuck interviews. I'm retired. "

    Rumor going around that McGoat asked for $10 million for UFC 200. UFC said no.

    Strange situation. Reeks of the UFC calling McGregor's bluff.

    Should note the UFC did not say he retired just that he is out of the PPV.
