Dana White Says He And Conor Mcgregor Making Plans For UFC Comeback
Last month Conor Mcgregor abruptly announced his retirement however many didn’t buy that and believed it was just a ploy from Irishman to get his negotiations done. That’s the second time Mcgregor had done in the past three years.
Before his retirement plans, Mcgregor was in negotiation to face off Donald ‘Cowboy’ Cerrone in July. Instead, Cerrone will meet Al Iaquinta on May 4th in Ottawa after a dispute over where Irishman wanted the main headliner bout.
UFC head Honcho Dana White previously said that Mcgregor isn’t retired. In his recent interview with CNN World Sport, White said ‘Mcgregor will fight again.’
“Conor likes to be in a position where he holds all the cards, and he does what he wants to do,” White said. “He and I figure out how to work together and how to make it all happen.”
Dana White also revealed he and Conor have been communicating daily and something will be out soon as we’re working on fight plans in regards to Mcgregor’s UFC comeback.
“His retirement? No [he didn’t discuss it with me]. Conor McGregor will fight again. Me and Conor communicate everyday, we’ve been talking all this week. Things are good with Conor and I and we’ll get something figured soon.
“Just talking about possible fights, possible time to come back. You know, he and I are actually setting up some plans right now. I’m going to Florida in the next couple of weeks and we’re going to sit down and talk face to face.”
What’s next for Mcgregor is still unknown, but he’d hinted several times in the past to have a grudge match against Khabib Nurmagomedov. A possible trilogy with Nate Diaz is also on the table.
