Dana White Reveals Targeted Return Date, Opponent For Conor McGregor

  • If Georges St-Pierre fights again, Dana White says it won't be against Conor McGregor

When Conor McGregor conquered Eddie Alvarez back in November 2016 nobody would have predicted he'd be out of action over two years later.

Dana White has spoken negatively of the prospects of a McGregor return in the past, however he's now hinted at a possible time frame while he claims the opponent is a certainty. Prior to that announcement, White stated he would be "super pissed" if St-Pierre refused to defend the title, and that he was contractually obligated to do so. "So, how has he never defended the title?"

"He became the 155-pound champion, and his next fight was against Floyd Mayweather".

At this time, White said there is no update on his next move.

UFC was quick to strip inaugural women's featherweight champion Germane de Randamie of her title in June four months after winning it for refusing to immediately face Cris "Cyborg" Justino. After knocking out Aldo, McGregor wanted to make history by challenging then-lightweight champion Rafael dos Anjos.

'Money is always a factor but we've never had a problem getting a deal done with Conor McGregor. The series is now tied 1-1. The Irish champ, who reportedly banked more than $100 million for "The Money Fight", has said he wants an ownership stake in the UFC, which White won't entertain. He fought [Chad] Mendes, [Dustin] Poirier.

Aside from the controversy surrounding Mayweather in the UFC, Dana White is also interested in getting into the boxing game in 2018 and promoting boxing events.

"It wasn't Conor's fault [dos Anjos] got hurt". It is Conor's fault he did Mayweather, but we chose to do the Mayweather fight and everybody gave a f--. "And after the fight, every fighter in the UFC gave him props for representing the sport".

It seemed more likely that McGregor would return during the first quarter of next year to unify the lightweight championship against current interim titleholder Tony Ferguson.
