Do we believe him?

Thanks for the cheese.
Catch ya's later.
UFC champion Conor McGregor sent a cryptic Tweet on Tuesday in which he claims that he has "decided to retire young." After being upset by Nate Diaz in March, the two fighters were scheduled to rematch on July 9. As reported by ESPN, McGregor was shaken earlier this month, when Joao Carvalho died from injuries suffered during fight that McGregor had attended. As McGregor wrote on Facebook, "To see a young man doing what he loves, competing for a chance at a better life, and then to have it taken away is truly heartbreaking."
Other than McGregor's Tweet, UFC has yet to confirm that he is, in fact, retiring from the sport. This post will be updated when we have more information.
