Conor McGregor appears to announce retirement via Twitter

Conor McGregor

Has Conor McGregor just delivered the most abrupt mic drop in recent memory?

The UFC fighter sent a cryptic tweet on Tuesday afternoon in which he appeared to announce that he was stepping away from the sport.

To say this is strange and abrupt would be an understatement. For one thing, McGregor was tweeting about training for his next fight as recently as yesterday.

McGregor lost to Nate Diaz at UFC 196 back in March, and was set to engage in a rematch with him at UFC 200. McGregor has been hard at work focusing on his fighting. Is this for real, was he hacked, or is this some elaborate joke? We’ll have to wait and find out.

UPDATE: McGregor has been removed from UFC 200. Dana White says McGregor would not participate in the press conferences.
