It looks as though Conor McGregor is learning from the mistakes of former women’s bantamweight champion Ronda Rousey and focusing on fighting Nate Diaz at UFC 200 rather than taking part in a blockbuster movie.
As I mentioned on @SportsCenter, I'm told McGregor has canceled his planned appearance in Vin Diesel's XXX film. Doesn't want distraction.

The featherweight champion was allegdly set to feature in Vin Diesel’s XXX film but has cancelled his appearance because he doesn’t want any distractions in the lead up to the biggest UFC show in history.
