Dana White Gives UPDATE On Conor McGregor’s Return

UFC Conor McGregor and Dana White

Dana White has said that Conor McGregor’s UFC return is entirely in his hands.

Speaking to TNT Sports ahead of UFC 296, Dana made a startling revelation about McGregor by saying that he might not be motivated or eager to compete.

McGregor most recently fought at UFC 264, where he lost to Dustin Poirier by a stoppage after breaking his tibia in the first round.

Like MMA aficionados, Dana is also excited about the prospect of McGregor making a comeback but the UFC president isn’t sure when the Irishman will make a move.

“Listen, at the end of the day, you know, I say it all the time, Conor [McGregor] is extremely wealthy,” Dana said. “He has a lot of different options in his life. You know, when Conor gets that hunger back and wants to come back [to the UFC] and fight, it’s all up to him.”

McGregor is currently dealing with delays due to USADA, as he won’t be eligible to compete this year due to a mandatory six-month testing period. However, with USADA set to part ways with the UFC starting January 1, 2024, the door for a potential comeback could open sooner than expected for the Dublin native.

While it’s unclear when the Irishman will have his next fight, there are speculations about a matchup with Michael Chandler, potentially at UFC 300.
