In a shock announcement this morning, it seems Conor McGregor is retiring from MMA.
He tweeted in the early hours of Tuesday morning to tell his followers the news:
Hey guys quick announcement, I’ve decided to retire from the sport formally known as “Mixed Martial Art” today.
I wish all my old colleagues well going forward in competition.
I now join my former partners on this venture, already in retirement.
Proper Pina Coladas on me fellas!

The 30-year-old Dubliner said this morning that he wishes his "old colleagues well going forward in competition."
However, in 2016 he tweeted that he was retiring from the sport, but has fought three times since.
I have decided to retire young.
Thanks for the cheese.
Catch ya's later.

It comes a fortnight after The Notorious was arrested in Miami for allegedly smashing a fan's phone.
We'll have more on this story as it develops.
