UFC champ starts following WWE personalities on Twitter after “retirement”

One of UFC’s biggest box office fighters, Conor McGregor, announced his retirement in a simple tweet less than 140 characters. “I have decided to retire young. Thanks for the cheese. Catch ya’s later,” McGregor wrote.

The big wrestling fan is now following Triple H, Shane McMahon, Stephanie McMahon, and fellow Irish Becky Lynch on Twitter, fueling speculations that he might be choosing to move to professional wrestling.

The current UFC Featherweight champion was removed from UFC 200 after UFC President Dana White admitted that McGregor refused to attend press conferences, face the media, and participate in a commercial to promote UFC 200, UFC’s biggest pay-per-view.

This could obviously be just a ploy from McGregor to get more money from the UFC or just a way to hype up his eventual return to the Octagon down the line, resulting in a bigger payout.

Former WWE champion CM Punk who is now with the UFC decided to have some fun with the situation. “Well f*ck it, I have decided to retire old. Thanks for the shoes @Reebok,” he wrote.
