Conor McGregor Retiring? Reactions.

Conor McMGregor Retiring? Reactions. Mixed reactions from those in the world of MMA, and is it true?
UFC Featherweight Champion Conor McGregor has shocked the fighting world today, as he announced that he is retiring from the world of Mixed Martial Arts. Six hours ago, McGregor took to Twitter to post up the news, saying:
I have decided to retire young. Thanks for the cheese. Catch ya’s later.
“I guess my work here is done I’m retiring too”
“‘I’ve decided to retire young. Thanks for the cheese. Catch yas later.’ Conor McGregor? Aw, he’s trollin’.”
“Fuck yeah, yeah.”
“Yeah, he’s decided to retire young. Which means, like, 34.”
“Listen man, Unless he got fuckin’ head kicked today and knocked into oblivion, the idea that he’s going to go out on a loss like that to Nate Diaz… Look he’s got plenty of cash, if he wanted to retire young and step away… I mean, I guarantee you he probably made somewhere in the neighborhood of $5 million bucks for the Jose Aldo fight. He probably made more than that for the Nate Diaz fight. I would imagine, after he’s spent a fuckload of it, he’s probably still got a few million bucks laying around. He’s a hero in Ireland, he could always make money, he could always run a gym and be fine. But, if I had a guess, this doesn’t make any sense.
“The only reason why it would make sense, the only reason why it would make sense is Conor had actually thought about retiring from MMA before he got the call from the UFC. There was a point in time where he had some friends that were experiencing some serious health issues from fighting. And then most recently, that young man from… The Portugese guy died in an MMA contest which I think took place in the UK.”
“I think he trained with the Portugese guy that died recently. It is entirely possible in that sense. But, if I had a guess, there’s no way he’d do it like this.”
