Dana White: ‘Conor McGregor may never fight in the UFC again’

UFC lightweight champion Conor “Notorious” McGregor has been spending some time away from the UFC. The champion recently celebrated the birth of his son and is now attempting to set up a match with Floyd Mayweather Jr.

However, it would appear that the UFC lightweight champion’s stay away from the UFC may be longer than initially expected. In a recent interview with Snoop Dogg, UFC President Dana White revealed that Conor McGregor may never fight inside the octagon again.

Speaking on the champion’s potential fight with Mayweather, Dana White explained that he believes Conor McGregor may not return to the UFC if he defeats Floyd Mayweather Jr.

Dana White explained that he believes McGregor’s career high payday may deter him from returning to the UFC. “How do you come back again and fight for eight, nine or ten million bucks?” White said.

The president then told Snoop Dogg, “He’s a smart kid, but he might never fight again. When you’re in the fight business, you’ve got to be hungry.”
