UFC President Dana White has since announced that the UFC featherweight champion has been pulled from his UFC main event against Nate Diaz in July.
The decision was reportedly made after McGregor refused to take part in promotional activities.
White said: “I respect Conor as a fighter and I like him as a person. But you can’t decide not to show up to these things. You have to do it.”
