  • Conor Mc Gregor announced Tuesday he will retire from mixed martial arts. File

UFC star Conor McGregor is under investigation for an alleged sexual assault in Ireland late past year.

"Hey guys quick announcement, I've made a decision to retire from the sport formally known as "Mixed Martial Art" today", wrote McGregor, 30, on the social media platform Tuesday. Proper Pina Coladas on me fellas!'

CNN has reached out to McGregor and the UFC for comment on the announcement.

McGregor is the most famous fighter in his sport, but he hasn't won a fight since November 2016, when he beat Eddie Alvarez to become the first UFC fighter to hold championship belts in two divisions simultaneously.

This follows reports that McGregor left UFC fans stunned early Tuesday, as he announced his retirement from Multiple Martial Arts (MMA).

Another angle that the bookmaker has put out there is that McGregor has announced the retirement just before Wrestlemania 35. During this time, a highly anticipated rematch with Khabib Nurmagomedov remained the fight that the UFC most looked forward to, all the while McGregor had gone public with his demands for ownership before he stepped back into the octagon.

Earlier this month McGregor - whose mother famously described as being "born with his fists clenched" - was arrested on charges of felony strong-armed robbery and criminal mischief following an altercation with a photo-seeking fan.

In January, the Nevada Athletic Commission suspended McGregor from fighting for six months and fined him $50,000 for his role in a brawl that took place after his loss to Nurmagomedov in October. "If you want to fight me in July, I will fight now and I'll fight you again".
