It makes zero sense to parade McGregor out in front of the media this early. The UFC 200 banner and Mcgregor on the card sells it on its own. He can't come out with the shit talking we are used to hearing from McGregor. He was humiliated after running his mouth. He needs time to reset and get his shit together. He was exposed big time. Same reason he hasn't fought Edgar. His armor is cracked and he could be on his way to three losses in a row. Panic mode setting in. They let Rousey completely disappear from the public eye for longer than they have given McGregor.
