    Dana White recently said that the proposed Conor McGregor vs Donald Cerrone bout is “nowhere close” to happening. Joe Rogan recently shared more info on what he’s been hearing about the negotiations, saying one of the roadblocks was card placement.

    “They were trying to do ‘Cowboy’ versus Conor and apparently the sticking point was that it was going to be a co-main event,” Rogan said on his podcast. “I think the idea is that they have to have world titles as a main event for pay-per-view.

    “I think he’s only interested in big fights,” Rogan said. “Like things that excite him now because he’s got so much money and so much success. It’s just one of those things.”

    Sounds like some horse shit to me. McGregor and Diaz was the main event and it wasn't for a title. Meisha Tate and Holly Holm was the co=main for a title on that ppv at UFC 196. Then the rematch at UFC 202 was also a main event with no title. Not sure what they're talking about in this article.

    Yeah someone definitely needs to call Jake Shields about this. Not buying it.

    I want to call bullshit, but that legitimately seems like something Conor would complain about.

    Not a big McGregor fan, so that may have something to do with that inference.

    I think if Conor wanted a fight, he would get that fight.

    I think it is more likely that Conor wants 1.5 billion dollars for the fight and they are only offering 1.25
