Dana White gives update on Conor McGregor’s UFC return
UFC president Dana White has hinted that Conor McGregor’s long-awaited comeback fight could take place in the summer.
McGregor, the first fighter in UFC history to hold two titles simultaneously, hasn’t fought in mixed martial arts since claiming the lightweight title in the main event of UFC 205 in November 2016.
And judging from White’s recent comments on ‘The Notorious’, it could be awhile before we see him back inside the cage.
“Let’s get through the holidays and hopefully he starts to get the itch to come back and hopefully we can get him back this summer,” White told ESPN.
Dana White unsure of Georges St-Pierre’s next move
White has also revealed he currently doesn’t know if St-Pierre plans on fighting again.
“There is no status,” White told ESPN. “I knew what he was doing. That’s why I put [a mandatory title defense] into his contract. We both knew what was going on.
“I don’t know, man. I don’t think the guy wants to fight. I think he jumped in, grabbed some cash and went back to Canada.”
Khabib Nurmagomedov makes chilling Tony Ferguson vow
UFC lightweight title contender Khabib Nurmagomedov has vowed to break interim 155lbs champion Tony Ferguson’s arm.
“When I get sick, go to hospital, almost die for my dream,” Nurmagomedov told ESPN’s Brett Okamoto.
“This “bulls**t guy” (Ferguson) talk too much about this.
“I will fight him and break his arm, I don’t think referee can stop this.”
