Straffan resident Conor McGregor has been pulled from his upcoming rematch against Nate Diaz after he refused to participate in any promotional activities for the UFC 200 main event.

UFC President Dana White confirmed the row between the organisation and one of its biggest stars on Tuesday night after a chaotic turn of events which saw McGregor apparently announce his early retirement with a single tweet.

“I have decided to retire young,” he wrote. “Thanks for the cheese. Catch ya’s (sic) later.”
