Dana White Says UFC 200 Fight Between Diaz And McGregor Is Still Off

According to Dana White the Diaz-McGregor fight at UFC 200 is still off and will not happen.  This comes after Conor McGregor's tweet saying the fight was back on, via TMZ:

TMZ Sports spoke to White this morning ... who tells us, "It's not true. We haven't talked to Conor or his manager since the press conference. I don't know why he would tweet that."

He adds, "All the media keeps asking me that. I feel like the scene in 'Step Brothers' when they ask if they can build the bunk beds. I don't know how many more times I can say the fight is off or how many more press conferences I can have saying the fight is off for people to believe it's off."

Somebody is full of shit here.  Is this all a WWE style promotion of the fight?  To be honest by refusing to promote the fight hasn't McGrogor actually created more buzz than traditional promotional methods?

Until a replacement for McGregor has been announced I won't believe the fight is off.
