Nate Diaz reacts to Conor McGregor tweet, joins 'Notorious' in retirement

BREAKING NEWS: Dana White pulls Conor McGregor from UFC 200 main event. Read full details here!

Someone call ZUFFA headquarters to check if Dana White and the rest of the Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) higher-ups are still breathing.

Not long after current UFC Featherweight champion Conor McGregor announced on social media that he decided to "retire young," Nate Diaz went and followed suit.

The two men are expected to take part in a rematch at UFC 200 on Sat., July 9, 2016 in Las Vegas, Nevada in what is set up to be one of the biggest pay-per-view (PPV) events of the year (fight card here).

Should they stick to their guns and opt to call it a day, UFC matchmakers will have to scramble to get another high-profile fight as the main event.

Maybe they can speed this process up.

Of course, this series of announcements could all simply -- and more likely -- be troll jobs on behalf of the talented fighters.
