Conor McGregor predicts UFC 200 won't sell 'anything close' to 1.5 million pay-per-views

New, comments

Conor McGregor may no longer be part of UFC 200, but that hasn't changed his want for a rematch against Nate Diaz.

McGregor held an impromptu Q&A on Twitter Monday morning, addressing a variety of topics from UFC 200 to his year-end goals. He defended his ground game and promised to "school" Diaz in their second fight, then predicted that a UFC 200 card without him would fail to sell "anything close" to 1.5 million pay-per-views. He also alluded to making a return to featherweight at the end of 2016.

McGregor was supposed to fight against Diaz on July 9 at UFC 200, but was pulled off the card for his refusal to travel to Las Vegas to fulfill promotional obligations.

UFC president Dana White has stated that McGregor's next fight will be a featherweight title defense against either Frankie Edgar and Jose Aldo, both of whom meet for the interim title at UFC 200.
