UFC President Dana White has shared his views on Conor Mcgregor's return to the octagon.
We last saw Conor fight against Porrier in July 2021, where the Irishman lost by technical knockout. Since then, he has been recovering from injury and is currently a coach at The Ultimate Fighter. His opponent there and the coach of the other team is Michael Chandler.
At the end of the season, the two are expected to compete in the octagon. At the end of last month, Conor said he had returned to the USADA pool. This is a very important step towards his return and when we all expect news about Connor's fight, Dana White hints that it may not happen.
Dana White said they had spoken to Mcgregor and the Irish superstar shared an opinion on how much he enjoyed starring in The Ultimate Fighter. According to this, White believes that Conor has felt the atmosphere of battle again and seems to have the desire to fight.
At the end of his statement, Dana shared his vision of the motivation for Conor's return to the cage.
"The one thing you guys have to understand is this kid has so much money. It’s like Khabib [Nurmagomedov] now. These guys got's loads of money, and it’s hard to reel these guys in and get them fired up to get in and fight."
