After his removal from UFC 200, betting on Conor Mcgregor to beat Nate Diaz may no longer be an option.
The UFC 200 card in Las Vegas, Nevada, was shaping up to be the biggest in the promotions history. Two world title fights were set to precede the rematch that the world was waiting for between Irish fighting icon Conor Mcgregor and perennial lightweight contender Nate Diaz. On April 16th, news broke that the Irishman was removed from the card, and those interested in betting on Conor Mcgregor through an online sportsbook were left waiting to hear about his next career move.
It has been a confusing week for MMA fans. After Mcgregor’s now infamous tweet claiming he was retiring, journalists and fans began debating what caused his removal. A few days later it came out that he did not fulfill his media obligations, and was not actually retiring, but would not fight on the historic UFC 200 card.
Is betting on Conor Mcgregor a possibility anymore?
Speculation remains high about when, or even if, Conor Mcgregor will fight again. Bwin Sports made gambling news by briefly issuing odds for betting on Conor Mcgregor to appear in the WWE, fight again in the UFC, and even run for Irish Prime Minister. The latter of which opened at 200-1.
Fans are now clamoring for the Irish superstar to be put back on the historic July 9th card, but President Dana White remains adamant that is no longer an option.
“All the media keeps asking me that,” he said. “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.”
