Recently, Joe Rogan made a shocking statement on the possibility of Conor McGregor becoming the main attraction at the historic UFC 300 event that will take place in April. An experienced commentator for the Ultimate Fighting Championship disclosed that the promotion was interested in the Irishman competing in the main event and offered the offer to him in the event that he was ready before the deadline.
Due to the fact that McGregor was unable to attain a state of physical fitness before to the date of April 13, the plans for him to feature on the card were abandoned. JRE Fight Companion for UFC 297 was the title of a recent episode of The Joe Rogan Experience podcast, in which he made the following statement:
In the most important one, they were attempting to capture Conor… However, by that time, he will not be prepared. Regards to TheSun.ie

Ariel Helwani had claimed that Conor McGregor was “upset” at not being awarded a spot on the UFC 300 card. Rogan’s words seemed to undermine Helwani’s interpretation of the situation. At the ‘Day of Reckoning’ boxing event that took place in Saudi Arabia a month ago, ‘The Notorious’ made a notable statement in which he criticized the promotion for delaying his homecoming and accused them of unfairly treating him.
Helwani revealed that the Irishman was upset about being ignored for a spot on the historic pay-per-view event during an episode of The MMA Hour earlier this month (via Chisanga Malata of The Irish Sun). Helwani made this statement in reference to the fact that the Irishman struggled to secure a seat on the event. It was in a post on X that he restated his previous views and wrote:
In point of fact, the date of June 29 in Las Vegas is set for the International Fight Week. In June, IFW will be held for the very first time. In most cases, it is the first or second Saturday of the month of July. At the age of 300, McGregor proposed a fight. He exerted a great deal of effort to achieve it. I was assured that he was prepared. However, following a discussion with the upper management the previous week, they decided to settle on June 29.

Daniel Cormier advocates a Conor McGregor vs. Nate Diaz trilogy fight for UFC 300
Recently, Daniel Cormier expressed his opinion on the possibility of Conor McGregor returning to action against Michael Chandler at the Universal Fighting Championship 300 event. One of the former champions of two different divisions expressed his opinion that he had a more favorable and appealing opponent in mind for the main event of the landmark event.
In a recent episode of the DC & RC Show on ESPN, Cormier announced that McGregor and Nate Diaz have been discussing the possibility of a blockbuster trilogy battle. Diaz and McGregor have been going back and forth about the fight. He expressed his opinion that a third bout between McGregor and Diaz would be more profitable than a battle between McGregor and Chandler and said:
One thing I will say about UFC 300 is that it does not include a significant fight… If McGregor and Diaz were to fight, I believe that would be the most interesting thing for the general public to watch in the UFC right now, more so than anything else they could possibly do… The way in which the first fight was fought, as well as the way in which the second bout was fought. “It is still two of the highest-grossing pay-per-views in the history of the Ultimate Fighting Championship.”
