Dublin, Ireland's Conor McGregor

It is without a doubt that UFC featherweight Conor McGregor has all eyes and ears on him as the story of UFC 200 continues on to the next chapter.

McGregor tweeted late Sunday that he and the UFC came to an agreement and was back on the UFC 200 card after being pulled off for refusing to take part in media obligations for the fight. UFC President Dana White later said on Monday to TMZ that nothing has changed since pulling “The Notorious” off the marquee UFC 200 card.

McGregor put up his first social media post on Monday since tweeting that he was back on for UFC 200, but did not address anything about his odd tweet, White’s comments, or UFC 200.

McGregor instead dedicated a shoutout to his longtime training partner Paddy Holohan after he revealed that he was forced to retire from MMA due to a rare medical condition.

McGregor posted the photo of the two SBG Ireland teammates saying, “Shout out to my brother @paddyholohanmma on his successful career in the fight game!
We had a heck of a time in Iceland training and toasting young success!! Tallaght and Crumlins finest!
The game will never be the same!”
