Conor McGregor stated recently that he locked into a fight at UFC 200, however an opponent has not been chosen.

Leading up to UFC 200, there’s much speculation as to who Conor McGregor will face at UFC 200. With his UFC 196 fight against Nate Diaz being a welterweight scrap, there’s many wondering if McGregor will face Robbie Lawler at UFC 200.

Given that McGregor stated that he wants to hold 3 UFC championships by the end of 2016, the idea of a McGregor-Lawler fight at UFC 200 is a very real possibility.

At the UFC 196 pre-fight press conference on Thursday, UFC President Dana White was asked if he was on board with the idea of McGregor fighting Robbie Lawler.

White revealed that at this point it’s hard to deny McGregor, and that he would be on board with a McGregor-Lawler fight at UFC 200.
