Weird. McGregor had the world by the tail and he suddenly retires? I totally get that MMA is measured in months rather than years at the top ranks of the sport, but this is still unusual.
What is going on behind the scenes of the UFC to have so many fighters seem so pissed off. Check out these tweets from fighters reacting to McGregor's retirement...

So it seems the McGregor retirement rumor is true. My thoughts? It's about the ca$h. Goes to UFC wanting more money & they said no. #UFC200— Josh Barnett (@JoshLBarnett) April 20, 2016
