LAS VEGAS (KTNV) — MMA fighter Conor McGregor announced his retirement from the sport in a tweet sent from his account late Monday night.

McGregor had some trouble earlier this month with the law as he was arrested in Florida for an incident involving a fan.

The former UFC star also took part in a historic boxing match against Floyd Mayweather in Las Vegas back in August 2017.
