After Conor McGregor abruptly announced his plans to retire young in a tweet that we’re still not sure what to make of, his scheduled UFC 200 opponent Nate Diaz has done the same:
It’s unclear if these announcements were coordinated together, if they’re real, and/or if they’re some sort of negotiating ploy to up the fighters’ compensation.
Meanwhile, UFC reporter Ariel Helwani tweeted:
Are “at this time” the key words there?
It’s been a crazy afternoon…
UPDATE: It is believed that Diaz was joking. McGregor’s situation remains ongoing.
