Nate Diaz has been booked to face Conor McGregor in a rematch this July at UFC 200.
However, McGregor might have changed those plans with a retirement message posted on social media Tuesday afternoon.
While many have speculated the meaning behind it, Diaz – in his typical Nate Diaz way – reacted as you might have expected:
I guess my work here is done I'm retiring too✌🏼️👊🏼

No word yet from the UFC regarding the McGregor retirement news.
Here are several other reactions about “Notorious” from fellow fighters and others:
