Conor McGregor Removed from UFC 200

The main event of UFC 200 is no more, with Conor McGregor’s fighting days possibly right behind it.

On Tuesday, following McGregor’s evident retirement via Twitter, Dana White announced that he had pulled McGregor from the main event of the supercard at UFC 200, leaving Nate Diaz without an opponent.

Fans and analysts alike had been wondering if he would fight at UFC 200 or not following his announcement, but it seems like he didn’t plan on it, if White is to be believed.

According to White, The Notorious One refused to fly to Las Vegas for the mandatory press conference.

McGregor was training in Iceland at the time of the refusal.

The series of events that have unfolded since the Tweet was sent seem to point to some sort of disagreement between White and McGregor, though that is pure speculation based on circumstantial evidence.

More on this bizarre event chain as it unfolds.
