The saga of whether Irish MMA fighter Conor McGregor will fight in UFC200 or not took another bizarre twist today.
After a tweet from the Dublin's official account this morning stated that his rematch with Nate Diaz was back on, UFC boss Dana White has been quoted by TMZ Sports as saying “the fight is off”.
Happy to announce that I am BACK on UFC 200!April 25, 2016
"It's not true,” TMZ Sports reports him as saying.
“We haven't talked to Conor or his manager since the press conference. I don't know why he would tweet that."
"All the media keeps asking me that. I feel like the scene in 'Step Brothers' when they ask if they can build the bunk beds.
“I don't know how many more times I can say the fight is off or how many more press conferences I can have saying the fight is off for people to believe it's off."
