McGregor causes further confusion by rapidly deleting 'announcement' Tweet

The Dubliner is toying with his social media following, and the world of MMA, amid the 'retirement' controversy he whipped up last night.

Following Dana White's comments on the Conor McGregor 'retirement' issue, the Notorious took to Twitter once again.

This time, however, his Tweet lasted barely a minute before he pulled it down.

Below is a screenshot of the deleted statement:

The UFC featherweight champion will most likely not be a part of the biggest night in the promotion's history after being dramatically pulled from UFC 200.

However, White has suggested there may be a route back into UFC 200 for the Irish fighter but stated that time is of the essence.

The 27-year-old sent the world of MMA into a spin with a tweet suggesting that he has called time on his fighting career.

What will happen next?
