Conor McGregor has announced his retirement from MMA and his fight with Nate Diaz at UFC 200 is no longer happened. McGregor made the announcement yesterday when he posted the following:

Former WWE Champion CM Punk jokingly weighed in on the retirement by announcing to the world that he has decided to retire old.

We probably won’t be seeing CM Punk retire any time soon as he signed with UFC in December of 2014 and he still has yet to fight in the octagon. Punk has been training but he encountered a setback a few months ago when he had to undergo back surgery. CM Punk is set to face off against Mickey Gall at some point but as of right now an official date for the fight has not been confirmed.

There are a lot of rumors surrounding Conor McGregor at the moment and some people seem to think that McGregor may be interested in working with WWE. Over WrestleMania 32 weekend McGregor followed Triple H, Stephanie McMahon and Shane McMahon which is seemingly how the rumor got started. It’s not known at this time if Conor doesn’t have any legitimate interest in making the jump to professional wrestling but Becky Lynch has invited him to join her in WWE.

Gabe Sapolsky has also offered Conor McGregor a spot with EVOLVE.

The following matches were taped for tonight’s episode of NXT.

  • American Alpha vs Enzo and Big Cass
  • Nia Jax vs Deonna Purrazzo
  • No Way Jose vs Alexander Wolfe
  • Samoa Joe vs Apollo Crews
