He sent his fans into meltdown in April when he tweeted about retiring, but now, Conor McGregor has finally opened up.
"I was in Iceland, chilling. I sent it on my phone," he said on The MMA Hour.
"Straight onto Twitter. Boom, boom, boom. 'I'm outta here, thanks for the cheese, catch ya's all later. See ya!' Then off to the gym," he recounted.
I have decided to retire young.
Thanks for the cheese.
Catch ya's later.

"Then, I came back from the gym and, all of a sudden, the thing is f*cking everywhere.
"That was another crazy experience. This life is a rollercoaster."
However, he also admitted that he could very well have retired that day, but decided to relax with a drink instead.
"If it came down to it I would have [retired] but good luck trying to keep an Irishman away from a fight.
“That night, I had a f*cking drink, went out. I was like ‘f*ck everybody, I am out of here’.”
