It's been a rough week for UFC 200.

Following all of the back and forth insanity from Conor McGregor and the UFC, it sounds like (from Dana White's perspective at least) that Mystic Mac is definitely off the July card.

Now it seems that the man he had been previously scheduled to face, Nate Diaz, is taking some time off as well.

It's hard to tell at this point if this means Diaz is definitely walking away from UFC 200 or not.

At the press conference last week though, he did say that if he can't fight Conor McGregor, then he's simply not interested in fighting at all. This might be confirmation that he's opting out of the event as well.

"If [the Conor fight] ain't gonna happen, I'm going on vacation," he said on Friday.

UFC 200 will take place on July 9, 2016. With Conor (and maybe Nate?) out, the current headlining match-up is a women's bantamweight title fight between Miesha Tate and Amanda Nunes.
