The Pro’s react to McGregor’s retirement tweet!

McGregor, the reigning UFC featherweight champion, is penciled in to face Nate Diaz on July the ninth where he will bid to avenge the only defeat of his UFC career.

His tweet sent MMA fans into a frenzy this evening as they tried to work out if the tweet was legitimate, or if his account had been hacked.

McGregor’s coach John Kavanagh seemed to back up the retirement rumours when he cryptically tweeted, ” fun while it lasted,” while respected UFC journalist Ariel Helwani reported that the Dubliner’s intentions appeared to be sincere

Nate Diaz was also quick to respond with a very cheeky tweet saying his work is done and he is now going to retire too!
