Conor McGregor certainly threw the UFC a bit of a curveball last month when he refused to fulfill his media obligations for his UFC 200 fight with Nate Diaz on July 9th.
After a brief scramble, Jon Jones vs. Daniel Cormier II was revealed as the new main event for UFC 200, with McGregor left on the sidelines.
While many believed that this caused a massive rift between the UFC and Conor McGregor, that isn’t the case according to UFC President Dana White, who spoke on the Dan Patrick show.
White on Conor: our relationship is great. We are going to get by the speed bump and move on. They're having dinner next week.
