PICS: John Kavanagh had his say following UFC 200 card changes, got a short response from Dana White
Dana's not in the mood for talking...
News spread like wildfire through The Great Sept of Baelor this morning that Jon Jones had been pulled from the UFC 200 card.
The news filtered out that the interim light-heavyweight champion was withdrawn from the card following a potential United States Anti-Doping Agency (USADA) violation.
It was a huge blow to the landmark UFC 200 card but they don't have a bad replacement main event with WWE star Brock Lesnar's clash with Mark Hunt moved to the main event slot.
However, it will be three-round main event.
We all know at this stage that Conor McGregor was originally scheduled to headline the card in a rematch with Nate Diaz before his massive tug-of-war with the UFC resulted in the fight being pulled from the card.
So following the revelations that Jon Jones was off UFC 200, McGregor's coach John Kavanagh took to Twitter to voice the question that most fans were silently thinking...
I wonder if there's any regret taking him off the card over a press conference now? 🤔💉💉🚫🚫

In case anyone was thinking that the UFC were cursing their poor fortune and feeling nostalgic to the good old days when McGregor was still on UFC 200... think again.

It's not all bad, at least we have a whole card of stellar fights to look forward to on Sunday morning.
This is just a taste:
Brock Lesnar vs. Mark Hunt
Miesha Tate vs. Amanda Nunes
Jose Aldo vs. Frankie Edgar
Cain Velasquez vs. Travis Browne
