The saga between Conor McGregor and UFC is far from over.
But UFC president Dana White has yet to formally put McGregor back on the card, and UFC officials responded to the reigning featherweight champion’s latest Twitter activity with a pretty blunt statement.
“The tweet is not accurate,” the statement read, via ESPN.com.
White threw more cold water on McGregor’s tweet Monday.
“It’s not true,” White told TMZ Sports. “We haven’t talked to Conor or his manager since the press conference. I don’t know why he would tweet that.”
McGregor was scheduled to fight Nate Diaz in a rematch of Diaz’s shocking UFC 196 victory. White has yet to announce who will headline UFC 200 in McGregor’s place, although Diaz has said he won’t stay on the card unless he’s fighting “The Notorious.”
Looks like it’s your move, Conor.
