It appears as though UFC featherweight champ Conor McGregor’s rematch with Nate Diaz is back on at UFC 200. McGregor tweeted the news early on Monday April 25th.

McGregor was pulled from the card last week after refusing to attend a scheduled April 22nd UFC 200 pre-event press conference in Las Vegas with the other fighters on the card. At the press conference, UFC president Dana White seemed immovable on his decision to pull McGregor from the promotion’s monumental July 9th show, but it seems he and UFC CEO Lorenzo Fertitta have been swayed by fan demand.
McGregor’s reintroduction to the UFC 200 card has not been confirmed by the UFC.
