Several months out from his July 9th rematch with Nate Diaz, Conor McGregor has tweeted that he’s decided to hang up the gloves…Is the UFC’s featherweight champ just trolling the masses? Yes. He probably is.
On Tuesday, the following post appeared on McGregor’s Twitter feed:
I have decided to retire young.
Thanks for the cheese.
Catch ya's later.

Of course, since McGregor reportedly campaigned hard,and then some, for a rematch with Diaz, the chances of the comments above being true are slim. McGregor was submitted by Diaz at UFC 196 last month, in a contest that took place at 170 pounds. Their UFC 200 rematch is also set to take place at welterweight.
