Conor McGregor is no longer headlining UFC 200, but the brash Irishman continues to dominate the build-up to the event. Jon Jones rematch with Daniel Cormier for the light heavyweight title was officially announced as the new main event on Wednesday, with a press conference to promote the event taking place at Madison Square Garden later in the day. McGregor was absent from the stage after being pulled from the card over his failure to fulfil media obligations but beleaguered UFC president Dana White was nonetheless forced to field multiple questions about the featherweight champion. Conor McGregor is not pleased about being pulled from UFC 200 White maintains McGregor has only himself to blame for the cancellation of his much-anticipated rematch with Nate Diaz.I didnt prevent Conor from fighting at UFC 200, White said. Everybody, if you look at [last weeks] news conference... Joanna Jedrzejczyk came in from Poland. Claudia Gadelha came in from Brazil. This is what we do. This is how it works.I didnt prevent him from fighting at UFC 200. He knew what the deal was. I told him what the deal was. He opted to do that. UFC president Dana White stands between Daniel Cormier (L) and Jon Jones as they square off during media availability for UFC 200 White sidestepped a question about how much of a financial loss the UFC would take for their decision to withdraw their star attraction and confirmed the company has no plans to lower the price of UFC 200 tickets.McGregors withdrawal has been met with disapproval by a large proportion of UFC fans and White has been acutely aware of that fact on social media by the Irishmans legions of supporters.An indication of the McGregors popularity is illustrated by the amount of people who tuned in to watch a live stream of the press conference for his fight with Diaz in February. That achieved a peak audience of over 360,000, while Wednesdays event topped out at just over 33,000. Jose Aldo (L) will fight Frankie Edgar for the right to face Conor McGregor To be left scrambling to announce a new main event the day tickets go on sale was not what White envisioned when he announced the card with much fanfare nearly 12 months ago.When asked if he was disappointed by fan and media reaction to the card he has put together, White said: We expect it to be big and it will be big.He did reveal there could be another fight added, seemingly admitting the UFC are not unaware of the apathy in some quarters to their revised line-up.We just added this fight to the card and we are not done, White added. Conor McGregor will be absent from UFC 200 The rift between McGregor and the UFC seems wide at the moment and White confirmed he has had no contact with the 27-year-old in recent days.Despite this, White was adamant McGregor will be back in the octagon relatively soon, just not at UFC 200.Conors going to fight again, White said. Hes going to fight at UFC 201, 202, 203, whatever the deal might be.Listen, 200 is the fight everybodys been looking forward to for a long time. It is what it is. The show is going to roll on and Conors going to fight again. Also See: McGregor replaced by Jones Diaz drops McGregor hint Rickey Jackson Jersey .

HOUSTON -- When 7-year-old Will Erickson penned a letter to Jeff Luhnow imploring the Houston Astros general manager to not trade George Springer, he never dreamed hed get a response.The reason was simple.Because hes busy, Will told The Associated Press on Wednesday.Will decided to write the letter when he heard the Astros could be looking for pitching this offseason and might need to trade a player such as Springer to get it. His letter was straightforward. With a few spelling errors, it said: Please dont trade George Springer these are the reasons 1. He is my favorite player 2. I get my hair cut like his 3. He is a team leader.It turns out that Luhnow wasnt too busy to take some time to get back to the second-grader.?Will said it took him about 15 minutes to write the letter. He decided after a recent letter-writing project at school that it would be cool to write instead of sending an email. He wasnt nervous about reaching out to a baseball executive, despite being in elementary school.No, because it was just a letter -- not like talking, Will said.He has been to quite a few Astros games and loves the work of Springer, who is an outfielder.I like how he robs homers and hits home runs, Will said.During the week, Wills bedtime is 8 p.m., so he isnt able to watch much of Astros games live, as they begin at 7:10 p.m. But he DVRs every game and watches his beloved Springers work from the night before after s
