Conor McGregor may as well head home from Iceland now as it looks like he has zero chance of getting his spot back on UFC 200.
Conor McGregor was set to face Nate Diaz in a rematch at the milestones show. But, Conor wanted to be excluded from the promo tour so he could concentrate on training.
UFC president Dana White, in short, wasn’t happy with this, so he gave Conor a small window to get in touch to talk about meeting up at the start of the tour. Conor didn’t get in contact and stuck to his plans of staying in Iceland.
This left Dana with no alternative but to pull Conor from UFC 200 and start with the challenging task of finding a new opponent at short notice for Nate Diaz. An opponent that many thought we would see at the press conference on Friday.
But no such announcement has been made as yet. But one thing that was 100% confirmed was that the door is now closed for Conor McGregor to fight at UFC 200. Dana said it was not fair that Conor should miss the conference as all the other fighters attended and they had to fly from all over the world.
Not just that, Dana explained how ‘training’ wasn’t much of an excuse not to attend as Jose Aldo attended a press conference when he had his sisters wedding the very next day back before UFC 194.
This left the absent McGregor with only one option, an option Conor has been taking up quite a bit lately! He went to social media to sound off.
