UFC president Dana White announced on ESPN’s Sportscenter that UFC superstar Conor McGregor was being removed from the UFC’s historic bicentennial card.
“We pulled Conor McGregor from UFC 200. We’re working on other fighters right now. Conor did not want to come to Las Vegas and film the commercials or be a part of any of the marketing that we have.”
No word on any UFC 200 line-up shuffling as of yet, or if the Frankie Edgar vs Jose Aldo fight for the interim featherweight belt will be for the legitimate title.
