Conor McGregor claims his name is back on the UFC 200 card

The featherweight champion made his announcement via Twitter

Conor McGregor announced that he would return to the card for UFC 200 via Twitter this morning.

The featherweight champion was pulled from the card after failing to honour his media obligations and had what appeared to be a public falling out with UFC president Dana White.

However, there has been no official confirmation from the UFC, Lorenzo Fertitta or from Dana White about the event.

McGregor had been scheduled to fight Nate Diaz after his shock defeat to the Stockton fighter at UFC 196.

McGregor claims that the main event will remain intact, after talk that his matchup against Diaz would be replaced by Daniel Cormier vs. Jon Jones for the light heavyweight unification title fight.
