MMA fighter Conor McGregor announced he was retiring from the sport in a tweet early Tuesday morning:

“I’ve decided to retire from the sport formally known as “Mixed Martial Art” today. I wish all my old colleagues well going forward in competition. I now join my former partners on this venture, already in retirement. Proper Pina Coladas on me fellas!”

The article goes on to state the following:

McGregor, who’s from Ireland, is the former UFC featherweight and lightweight champion and one of the biggest draws in MMA. He returned to UFC last fall after a hiatus during which he made his boxing debut, a loss to Floyd Mayweather.

The announcement came after the 30-year-old UFC star was arrested in Florida earlier Monday for allegedly smashing a fan’s phone outside a hotel in Miami Beach, according to police. McGregor, who has not fought since early October, has garnered a reputation for his rowdy behavior. He was arrested last August for allegedly shattering the window of a bus that was filled with UFC fighters in New York City. Earlier this year, he received a suspension and fine for a brawl that unfolded after an Oct. 6 fight in Las Vegas against UFC lightweight champion Khabib Nurmagomedov.
