Dana White Confirmed Conor Mcgregor Wouldn’t Face Any Disciplinary Action
Yesterday Conor Mcgregor accepted the plea deal of one count of disorderly conduct that means no more jail time, in return to participate in five days of community service and to attend anger management classes. Irishman also has to pay restitution for the damages caused to a bus.
UFC president Dana White confirmed on Friday at UFC On Fox 30 media scrum that he’s looking past Mcgregor’s bus attack and figuring out what’s next for big star. When Irishman caused all the chaos at UFC 223 media day, White went on to said it was the “most disgusting” incident in the history of UFC. Now there is a change of tune; white says all is good between him and Mcgregor. (Via MMAJunkie)
“Conor has faced a lot of repercussions,” White said after UFC on FOX 30 weigh-ins. “Conor has lost a lot of money and a lot of time. Conor and I are good. We’re good.”
UFC head boss is being a hypocrite now, by now putting further sanctions on his beloved star, as he’s their cash cow. If you remember, last time White was so angered at British mixed martial artist Paul Daley when he punched rival Josh Koscheck as retribution for taunting him during a defeat at UFC 113 back in 2010 and quickly banned him from the organization.
White is now targeting a Khabib versus Mcgregor a highly intriguing bout to happen at UFC 229 on October 6. That might be unfortunate for lightweight contenders Dustin Poirier, and Eddie Alvarez who are throwing down at UFC On FOX 30, hoping for a title shot may not get an opportunity.
White is excited about Alvarez and Eddie’s fight but said he wants to see Khabib vs. Mcgregor fight next.
“The fight everybody wants to see is Conor and Khabib,” White said. “That’s the fight.”
Moreover, White also discussed the former lightweight champion Tony Ferguson, who is currently rehabbing his injured knee, could land on the same card.
“I would love to put (Ferguson) on the same card as Khabib and Conor,” White said.
Well if all the above bouts become official, it will be one hell of a card that will create fireworks.
