UFC mixed martial artist Conor McGregor recently announced on Twitter that he was retiring from MMA fighting, which surprised fans since he is scheduled to fight Nate Diaz at UFC 200 on July 9th.

Most surprised of all about this retirement announcement was Conor “The Celtic Tiger” McGregor, who took to Twitter to clarify Conor “Notorious” McGregor’s tweet, stating he was not retiring and was in fact still doing the fight.

After being corrected publicly by another fighter like Conor, McGregor replied to the tweet, and that’s when things started to get nasty.

Conor wasn’t about to stand for that type of trash talk from a fighter like McGregor, though, and he @replied in kind. Twitter fight, anyone?

In typical Conor fashion, he brought up the amount of money he has made for the Ultimate Fighting Championships based on Pay Per view sales and the like. McGregor had a retort to match that, though, since he had made the exact same amount for UFC. Wow, this epic Twitter brawl is getting brutal.

Then things got real ugly. Looks like these Twitter feeds are going to have some bruises. Is the cutman around?

Sadly, just when it seemed like these two fighters had worked out their differences, their inner pugilists came out again:

Well, there you have it. Looks like they agreed to disagree,unlike UFC’s current opinion of the confusion. We wish the best to Conor “Notorious” in his retirement and all the best to McGregor “The Celtic Tiger” in his continued fighting career.
