The UFC 200 main event between featherweight champion Conor McGregor and Nate Diaz is off, promotion President Dana White said today.

White, appearing on ESPN’s “SportsCenter,” said the Irish titleholder – one of the company’s two most bankable fighters – has been pulled from a rematch with Diaz this July in Las Vegas after failing to agree to some of the required promotion for the event.

I heard it stems from a beef between Dana White and Ido. Something about Ido touching Dana White's butt.

Wow. Maybe McGregor pulling a Ronda Rousey after the loss?

What you've just said is one of the most insanely idiotic things I have ever heard. At no point in your rambling, incoherent response were you even close to anything that could be considered a rational thought. Everyone in the playground is now dumber for having listened to it. I award you no props, and may the mods have mercy on your soul.

I just don't see Dana pulling him for that. Even without press conferences Conor would pull crazy numbers. Something else is up.

It sounds to me that McGregor is worried of being made out to look like a fool, why else would he not do the promotional stuff ? A man can only take too much pressure and maybe he just doesn't see it's worth.

I'm making the prediction that he will go to boxing because he knows in the back of his mind that Edgar and RDA who will most likely be his next match ups would wrestle the shit out of him and dominate him on the ground. If he makes a transition now to boxing before another loss then he still has a lot of that hype behind him

It was just a little butt touch in the park, it's what guys do. Ido needs to get over it.

I think conor is trying to bully his way to a few more million......

Sorry conor you only get that big ass paycheck when you win.......your coming off of a loss you'd think he'd be eager to get after diaz.

But imho i think mcgregor knows diaz beats him again as well as edgar or rda.....hes wanting that pay out before his freefall begins.

Just saw the Ariel interview on mmafighting, looks like it could be the death of the fighter by Charlie ward one of mcgregor's team mates that has had an effect on him. There are other rumours about money but they just don't add up..

Crazy news.

Fighters I've seen who have offered to replace him:

Donald Cerrone
Patrick Cote
Neil Magny (I would be so down for this)
Dustin Poirier
Cub Swanson
