His UFC rivals wasted no time in reacting to his decision and former foe Diaz has now weighed in on the Irishman's abrupt retirement.

On Twitter, he wrote "Welcome," before swiftly removing the post from social media.

The Stockton slugger also tweeted a message in response to Jon Jones and Jorge Masvidal's public spat with the UFC over pay.

"U Boys Are Growing Up [sic]," he tweeted, again, before deleting.

McGregor called time on his MMA career after growing frustrated with the UFC.

"I was cutting to 155, and then because I asked for 155, they wanted to show power and stomp all over me," he explained.

"I don't know why they do this. But it was taken from me and then pushed back. So then I'm thinking I don't want to be cutting if I'm fighting at 170. I have to be careful here. My body has to be correct to the weight. And then the 176 [Silva] talk. I'm just over it, man."

Diaz, meanwhile, hasn't fought since his UFC 244 defeat to Masvidal for the BMF title in November 2019.
