I have decided to retire young.
Thanks for the cheese.
Catch ya's later.

McGregor, had been scheduled to fight Nate Diaz at UFC 200 on July 9, in a rematch of their bout when Diaz upset McGregor at UFC 196.
Dana White also revealed that Conor had no interest in promoting the bout — choosing to stay in Iceland rather than fulfill his obligations like everyone else.
“Conor didn’t want to come to Las Vegas and be part of any promotional training,” White said. “He’s in Iceland training.
“He felt leaving right now would hurt his training. But every other fighter on the card is coming.
“It doesn’t make you exempt. We spend a lot of money on this stuff.”
“Is Conor McGregor retring? Only he can answer that question,” White said. “I don’t know. But he will not be a part of UFC 200.”
This is a major troll job, or could get ugly.
