Superstar said he is not just coming out to fight back to being just another fighter on the roster for another payday.
“We’re in the contract negotiation stage,” McGregor said. “It’s got to, they’ve got to entice me now because, I came from a billion-dollar fight. I want equity, I want pay-per-view. I want to be a true partner. You have to entice me now. I want to be a partner. I want to be a promoter and I want to be a fighter for me to continue.”
Mcgregor said he wants his next fight that would have to be in association with his own sports entertainment company.
UFC president Dana White is the biggest fan of cash cow Mcgregor, do you think he is also a big enough to offer partnership he is demanding?
