Despite being removed from the UFC 200, Conor McGregor still continues to create noise in the MMA world after hosting an on the spot Q&A on Twitter on Monday specifically focusing on the UFC 200 and his future rematch with Nate Diaz, according to Yahoo Sports.
When McGregor was asked if the UFC 200 will earn as much as $1.5 million, he did not hesitate to say no, saying that it could only be done if he is included in the event. He added that he is targeting to break the Mayweather-Pacquiao record once he came back into the Octagon.
McGregor also expressed his will to fight the winner of UFC 200’s interim featherweight title bout between Jose Aldo and Frankie Edgar so that he can unify the titles.
On the other hand, Frankie Edgar’s camp said on Daily Star that McGregor and his team was afraid to face Edgar and added that if the Irishman lose, all his fame and reputation in the league will be gone.
“We wanted this fight, but only one person didn’t want it and that’s Conor and his team.
“Because they are very smart people and they know what’s the result of this fight and they want to give him more life. Like fighting at 170 and fighting at 155 and he’s still the champ.
“If he fights now and he loses he becomes just a regular ordinary fighter in the UFC.”
Conor McGregor also tweeted some insults for Nate Diaz saying that he will school him until the bell rings as long as they meet again in the Octagon.
Diaz managed to answer in a simple hastag #whitebelt, referring to McGregor’s lack of a ground game which was one of the reason why he lost in the second-round of their match via rear naked choke.
The McGregor-Diaz rematch in the UFC 200 seems to be a dream for all MMA fans. But as soon as Dana White reverse his decision to bring back the two fighters in headlining the event, it will surely bring joy and excitement for those who are eager to see the Irish fighter take his revenge in the Octagon.
