UFC chief leaves door ajar for star to change his mind

By Ryan Nugent

UFC chief Dana White has left the door open for Conor McGregor to fight at UFC 200 despite the fighter announcing his 'retirement' from the MMA.

According to sources, the Dubliner is attempting to show the UFC that they need him more than he needs them, after White pulled him from UFC 200 for not fulfilling promotional commitments.

However, White did not rule McGregor out of the Las Vegas event.

"If he called me we'd probably still do it," he said.

However, the chances of McGregor getting in touch with the UFC chief is unlikely, given that he is looking to exert his importance to the company.

The power struggle between McGregor and the UFC has been ongoing for some time, with McGregor saying in December "I am the company".
