The UFC has made no official confirmation, but Conor McGregor decided to send out an overnight Sunday/Monday morning in Ireland tweet that says he’s back on UFC 200.

The timing is very much off for an announcement like that, leading to plenty of skepticism regarding the news. If it’s another power play, a hacked account statement, McGregor speaking out of turn, or any other possible explanation for the tweet, we’ll likely find out sometime soon on Monday.
Penick’s Analysis: I doubt this is to be believed with him tweeting it out first thing in the morning where he’s at, while the UFC and their PR machine sleeps (or at least when they’re not working). Is it possible? Of course, but until Daniel Cormier gets cleared or not cleared I don’t know that the UFC would fold. Don’t take the announcement simply as is for now, and don’t get hopes up just yet.
