ESPN tweeted the announcement on Monday.
Conor McGregor will appear in the Body Issue.
— ESPN (@espn) May 23, 2016
“The Notorious” will be added to the list of MMA athletes that include current UFC women’s bantamweight champion Miesha Tate, former champion Ronda Rousey, Cris Cyborg, and current light heavyweight interim champion Jon Jones.
Conor McGregor is hoping to get his rematch with Nate Diaz after their originally scheduled rematch at UFC 200 was pulled off the card after “The Notorious” refused to take part in all the media obligations the UFC had aligned to promote UFC 200.
While McGregor and the UFC brass have made amends, UFC President may now be having a tough time getting Nate Diaz to come to an agreement on terms of the fight.
