Dana White: Conor McGregor Tweet is Not True


Conor McGregor tweeted today that he is back on the UFC 200 card and he also thanked Dana White and Lorenzo Fertitta.

Conor said in his tweet:

“Happy to announce that I am BACK on UFC 200! Shout out to @danawhite and @lorenzofertitta on getting this one done for the fans. #Respect”


But, you may of guessed it anyway, UFC featherweight champion Conor McGregor must of been expressing some out of place humour as he has not been added to the UFC 200 card.

UFC president Dana White said to TMZ Sports this morning, “It’s not true. We haven’t talked to Conor or his manager since the press conference. I don’t know why he would tweet that.”

You're not going nowhere: Dana told McGregor he is off the UFC 200 card.

McGregor was meant to face Diaz in a rematch at UFC 200, but last week tweeted that he has retired. This was followed by Dana White pulling Conor from the card.
