See: Conor McGregor's latest Twitter activity won't impress UFC

Published 1 Comments

Conor McGregor is making quite the habit of using social media to vent his feelings these days.

From proclaiming his retirement and calling out the UFC's media policy to randomly deciding he was back on the UFC 200 match card, the Irishman hasn't exactly kept a low profile in recent days.

And he has been back at it again over the past 24 hours as a re-tweet and five-word message made his feelings on his exile from the UFC 200 pay-per-view very clear.

First, the 27-year-old re-tweeted a post uploaded by the @McGregorArmy Twitter handle - a fan group with around 6,000 followers - which mocked the UFC for going ahead with plans to leave him off July's event in Las Vegas:

He then followed that up with a message of his own on Thursday which looked to emphasise his high-profile reputation:

McGregor certainly isn't taking UFC's decision to go with a Jon Jones vs Daniel Cormier main event at UFC 200 lying down.

Having previously tried to call the UFC's bluff with talk of retirement and false claims about his rematch with Nate Diaz, however, McGregor's actions on social media are beginning to look increasingly desperate.

With the organisation's president Dana White having remained loyal to his decision to pull The Notorious One from the much-hyped UFC 200, his attempts to rally fight fans behind his cause have clearly fallen on deaf ears.

His claim that "my name will reign forever" may well be true considering his status as the biggest name in UFC right now. Nevertheless, the fact that the UFC has not buckled to his demands in recent days show that he cannot have everything his own way.

Missing out?

As to how much worse the UFC 200 card is without his name on it, that is a question which will continue to be debated over the next few months.

After his surprise defeat at UFC 196, a McGregor vs Diaz rematch was something fighting fans were very keen to see and, judging by the brutal nature of their first meeting, it surely would have been a must-see event.

Recent reports have even claimed that not including the Irishman could cost the UFC up to $45 million because of a dip in interest.

However, Jones vs Cormier is not a bad replacement as a headline fight. Bones' return this past weekend reminded everyone of his ability after a 15-month absence from the octagon. Seeing him go head-to-head with an arch rival in Cormier at UFC 200, then, still promises to provide a top night of action.
