Nope. He's just stirring the pot again.

Just weird:

UFC President Dana White on Monday denied featherweight champion Conor McGregor’s claim that he had been added back to the UFC 200 card on July 9 in Las Vegas.

“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.

“All the media keeps asking me that,” he added. “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.”

McGregor claimed via Twitter that he had been placed back on the UFC 200 card: “Happy to announce that I am BACK on UFC 200! Shout out to @danawhite and @lorenzofertitta on getting this one done for the fans. #Respect”

McGregor on April 19 was pulled from a scheduled rematch with Nate Diaz at UFC 200 after he announced on Twitter that he planned to retire. Despite the fact that McGregor’s announcement preceded the UFC’s by several hours, UFC President Dana White told ESPN that the UFC pulled McGregor from the card due to the [url=http://www.sherdog.com/stats/fightfinder?association=SBG Ireland]SBG Ireland[/url] rep missing promotional obligations in Las Vegas.

“We pulled Conor McGregor from UFC 200, and we’re working on other fights right now,” White said. “Conor did not want to come to Las Vegas and film the commercial or be part of any of the marketing that we have. He’s in Iceland training, and it’s not possible.”

White attempted to liken the situation to that of Nick Diaz being removed from the main event of UFC 137 after failing to attend a press conference to promote an October 2011 fight with Georges St. Pierre. He claimed in a later interview with radio host Colin Cowherd that his relationship with McGregor had not fractured.

“Our relationship isn’t damaged at all,” he said. “I can tell you this: Conor was making a lot of money for this fight. It’s not like I’m asking Conor to come out here and do something none of the other fighters are doing. All the other fighters are showing up and doing it, and it’s not like this is three weeks before his fight. His fight isn’t for three months. So Conor at the end of the day for whatever reason, he freaked out about this. He’s a very reasonable guy, a smart guy. He likes money. This is weird.”

The important part of McGregor's tweet is the "thanks for getting this one done for the fans" part.
He's just once again trying to play the fans against Dana and the UFC by painting this like it's 100% their fault.

I hope this saga goes away soon, because the longer it goes on, the more I'm beginning to dislike McGregor, and I'd like to remain a fan after this if at all possible. He needs to stop with this fan manipulation Twitter warfare crap.

Well, appears the UFC didn't bite at Conor's tactics.

Jones/Cormier has been added to the UFC 200 card.
I hope (for Nick's sake) Diaz still gets to fight someone.

My guess is Conor/Edgar headlines the first New York event.

Nate was given a list of fighters to pick from and he declined them all choosing to go on vacation.

If dos anjos was one of the opponents he was offered than i lost a bit of respect for him.

I think they told jones to look suspect in his last fight against osp so everyone can say dc would/will wreck jones blah blah blah and we will see jones come in and perform a million times better in the next fight and it will give people a reason to get on the jones bandwagon.. UFC needs that with ronda and McGregor issues.

I believe this was all planned out in a promotional effort.

Is it odd that I read this in an Alex Jones voice.....

On the next InfoWars!

But I also think that it is absolutely possible and plausible.... so there's that.

hahahahah that's great...

I really do believe this is the case. I'm excited for the jones vs cormier match as much as the edgar aldo match but its not anything that is over the top.

I feel the ufc dropped the ball going with the rematches.

ufc 200 is a great card but it should have been a fucking insane balls to the wall type card
