UFC President Dana White took questions for several mins during a UFC Fight Night 130 post-event press discussion during Echo Arena before a contributor finally asked about a standing of his assembly with Conor McGregor.
“I suspicion that was going to be a initial doubt we got when we walked in here,” White responded in jest. “I’m unapproachable of we guys.”
Prior to UFC Fight Night 130, White pronounced he and McGregor would meet this past weekend in Liverpool to plead a former two-division champion’s future, yet that didn’t occur as expected. There’s a new designed assembly now.
“Conor and we are going to accommodate in Vegas,” White said.
White didn’t mention a date or offer any other sum about what he had in mind. He indicated it’s been roughly dual months given he’s even communicated with McGregor.
“He and we haven’t seen any other given New York (during UFC 223 quarrel week),” White said. “So, we haven’t seen any other, we haven’t talked, nothing. We need to get together soon.”
McGregor, who hasn’t had an MMA quarrel given Nov 2016, was nude of a UFC lightweight pretension following new champ Khabib Nurmagomedov’s feat in Apr during UFC 223 in Brooklyn. Whether or not McGregor will quarrel again stays anybody’s guess, yet his posts on amicable media advise he’s actively training.
Even if he does come back, McGregor still has tentative authorised issues to solve stemming from his barbarous train conflict during Barclays Center during UFC 223 quarrel week. McGregor is due behind in justice Jun 14 to answer to mixed charges stemming from a videotaped rampage. He was charged with 3 depends of attack and one count of rapist mischief.
One of his teammates, Cian Cowley, was charged with one count of attack and one count of rapist effect for his purpose in a melee.
Asked about a chances of McGregor fighting before a finish of a year, White was clever with his answer.
“That depends on what goes on with him in New York in June,” White said.
Perhaps after that there will be some clarity on McGregor’s future.
