Justin Gaethje reacts to McGregor’s retirement Tweet. It was one of the first few reactions we saw coming from a big name.

Conor McGregor early Sunday morning took to twitter and announced his retirement at the age of 31. McGregor chose to hang up his gloves for good and tweeted a picture with his mother and the caption read, “’Hey guys I’ve decided to retire from fighting. Thank you all for the amazing memories! What a ride it’s been! Here is a picture of myself and my mother in Las Vegas post one of my World title wins! Pick the home of your dreams Mags I love you! Whatever you desire it’s yours.’”

A lot of people have reacted to his Tweet and called him out on it. One of the first few being his division colleague and current interim lightweight champion Justin Gaethje. And Justin didn’t let this opportunity slide to let out a shot at McGregor as well.

He tweeted saying, “Thankfully all of the elderly are still hiding in their homes. This guy is on another bender #ByeFelicia.”

Justin Gaethje took a shot at McGregor’s previous infamous ‘benders’ where he while intoxicated created a lot of havoc. He has had a history with alcohol-related stunts that he might regret the morning after. And Gaethje is referring to this Tweet as a similar situation.
