TalkMMA claims McGregor was knocked out in sparring.
I was told by someone close to SBG, McGregor was allegedly knocked out cold in sparring today; possible broken nose, shaky to his feet.

According to the MMA news website, Smack His Face, McGregor is set to announce his retirement from MMA. Reportedly worn down by the travel and media commitments, McGregor’s family life is apparently suffering and he wants to take an indefinite time out from the sport to reconnect with those close to him.
Coming after Dana White’s announcement that McGregor will not fight Alvarez at UFC 205, and reports that Alvarez has not yet signed the contract, Megan Olivi claims that McGregor will miss UFC 205 completely as his leg injury will keep him out of action beyond the event. However, other reports say that McGregor’s leg is fine. If McGregor does not fight Alvarez he would most likely have to defend his featherweight title against Jose Aldo, or take on the potentially returning Georges St-Pierre. The official UFC 205 announcement is set for Tuesday 27th September.
According to sources close to McGregor, Conor is "fine" and the leg would not prevent him from fighting at UFC 205.
