Although this announcement has come as a surprise to all his fans, this is not the first time he has announced that he is going to ‘retire’.
In 2016 he made a similar announcement saying, “I have decided to retire young.”
I have decided to retire young.

Now we don’t if he actually serious this time or he just tweeted this in a fluke because only Conor McGregor knows what he is going to do.
