Conor McGregor fight back on UFC 200

Conor McGregor has claimed that his fight against Nate Diaz at UFC 200 is back on.

The Dubliner has tweeted that he and President Dan White have come to an arrangement so his bout with Diaz will go ahead.

It comes three days after Diaz insisted that he will only fight at UFC 200 if McGregor is his opponent, which left UFC President Dana White in an awkward situation as he threatened to walk from UFC 200.

Mc Gregor and the UFC had said that the bout was off due to a disagreement over the promotion schedule, but those differences are now resolved.

McGregor thanked Dana White and Lorenzo Fertitta for bringing his fight back on the card in Las Vegas on July 9.
