Joe Rogan *really* wants to see Conor McGregor at UFC 200

Joe knows


In case you hadn’t heard, there’s a very public tug-of-war going on between Conor McGregor and the UFC right now.

The Notorious has been pulled from the UFC 200 fight card after he refused to come to the States and take part in promoting his summer re-match against Nate Diaz.

McGregor has stated that he wants to focus solely on his work in the gym because there are other “dancing monkeys” that the company can use to promote the event, while Dana White is holding firm that no one man is bigger than the company, not even McGregor.

As things stand, the Irishman is definitely not on the card but UFC broadcaster Joe Rogan is still open to the idea of getting McGregor back on the billing.

The comedian-cum-commentator was asked if McGregor’s assertion that his retirement announcement was worth more than press tour.

Unsurprisingly, the often outspoken Rogan sided with the featherweight champion and called for him to be reinstated for the July 9 fight.

Over to you, Dana.
