UFC Head Honcho Dana White Says He’s Meeting Mcgregor In Few Weeks To Figure Things Out
Two weeks ago former UFC two-division champion Conor Mcgregor surprised the MMA world with his retirement from the sports. This whole fiasco is stemming from when Irishman asked for a stake in the company recently to that Dana White said that’s never going to happen.
Mcgregor is a UFC’s cash cow who holds multiple PPV records and back in 2017 he increased his net worth after banking a $100 millions in his boxing match against Floyd Mayweather. Moreover, he’s riding high with the success of his recently launched Proper No. 12 Whiskey which had made record-breaking sales in the USA. Even if Irishman doesn’t return to Octagon, he won’t lose anything as former champ is already living a lavish lifestyle.
But according to UFC president Dana White, Irishman isn’t retired, and soon we both will have face to face meeting. White said he’ll figure things out how to make him happy in other ways. Company boss also said if you see ‘NBA’s Michael Jordan even didn’t own piece of the league.’ So presumably White means Mcgregor wouldn’t get a piece. (h/t MMAMania)
“No,” White told 8 Las Vegas. “I think there’s some things that Conor wants. I think that Conor wants to get together, face-to-face, he and I, and we probably will in the next couple of weeks to get this thing figured out. He’s stuck on this thing where he wants a piece of the ownership. I think there’s other ways we can make him happy.”
White also said due to of Conor Mcgregor and Khabib being out of the octagon for some time which messes things up in the lightweight division. However, he’s expecting ‘Eagle’ will be back by September and can take on the winner of Dustin Poirier vs. Max Holloway who are slated to clash for an interim lightweight title at UFC 236 on April 13th.
Do you think Mcgregor will make a comeback?
