WITH still no Conor McGregor on the fight card, it looks like Nate Diaz is walking away from UFC 200.

Ultimate Fighting Championship president Dana White denied McGregor’s claim that he’s back on UFC 200 and Diaz tweeted  on Monday (Tuesday, Manila time) that he is going on vacation.

Diaz said what he wants is McGregor and no one else, even as White insisted that the 31-year-old fighter remains on the card but will face another opponent.

McGregor announced on Sunday he is back on UFC 200, bu White says it won't happen.

"It's not true. We haven't talked to Conor or his manager since the press conference. I don't know why he would tweet that," White told TMZ Sports.

Happy to announce that I am BACK on UFC 200! 

"All the media keeps asking me that. I feel like the scene in 'Step Brothers' when they ask if they can build the bunk beds. I don't know how many more times I can say the fight is off or how many more press conferences I can have saying the fight is off for people to believe it's off."
