According to UFC president Dana White, Conor McGregor is definitely out of UFC 200, but that doesn't mean he won't fight pretty soon after.
White was recently in LA to watch Paige VanZant's performance on Dancing With The Stars, and took some time to speak with a TMZ reporter. He said that McGregor could return as early as UFC 201.
"He'll fight on 201, 202, 203, whatever" White said. "I don't know when. We'll get it figured out."
If the UFC sticks with their usual PPV schedule, UFC 201 could happen in August.
As for what's been happening over the past couple of weeks, Dana White doesn't seem to hold any ill will towards the featherweight champ.
"Conor has his own style, has his own ways of doing things," White said. "It is what it is. We have a difference of opinion on this thing. He thinks that he doesn't need to do media anymore and that's now how we do it. We do press conferences. We're spending $10 million on this fight."
"Listen, I've said it a million times. Conor has stepped up, man, and saved big fights for us. I have no hard feelings with Conor. Conor is his own guy. He's gonna do what he's gonna do. But he's not fighting on 200."
