From John Kavanagh's FB...I smell a troll-job.



Someone online edited the screenshot Kavanagh put up...



He quickly deleted that last photo, and posted this.

Nate shouldn't get too excited. There's no million dollar fight for him outside of Connor McGregor. If this retirement is for real, I would question if Nate continues to headline UFC 200. Without that McGregor shrapnel fame, Nate is just another good 155'er.

Lots of rumours swirling. Injured ACL, wants time off after seeing a guy get killed in the cage. But it definitely seems he's genuinely out for the time being and out of UFC 200.

This is going to be awesome when Conor announces this was a joke. Its literally everywhere. They are doing a segment on ESPN right now. People are sure it's not a joke but all the 'sources' have nothing.

Also ESPN just said Aldo is defending a title a UFC 200.

Think. It Ain't Illegal Yet

Reasons still unclear, but 4 hours later, multiple sources maintaining McGregor's tweet is real. UFC working on next step(s) at this time.
I'm still calling BS on the whole thing...

I think he's injured but after giving so much sh*t to Aldo and RDA over injuries he doesn't want to come out and pull out of the biggest event ever with an injury.

No way.... to go from biggest star ever (in his head) to retiring? I don't buy it unless he's seriously injured.

Who is to say he woulf be excited?

Gsp vs Nate is big money.

And nate is a star especially now. Proven he moves the needle. Will he het Co or paydays? No. But be will be making a ton more than he was. The biggest star at 155 or below hands down if we take out Ronda.

I did want ro see Nate slap up the little fellow again however. Its just priceless. Sure he did too..
