Tuesday morning the MMA world was stunned as Conor McGregor announced his retirement from MMA ahead of his UFC 200 welterweight scrap against Nate Diaz.

McGregor’s coach seemingly confirmed the news on Twitter, which was followed up by UFC President Dana White announcing on SportsCenter that McGregor had been pulled from UFC 200 for refusing to fulfill media obligations.

McGregor followed this up by shutting down a reporter who requested an interview by saying: “I’m retired. Fuck interviews.”

Jonathan Shrager then released more information on the situation after speaking to an immediate family member of McGregor.
