Dana White Changes His Tune, Says Conor “Deserves” Ownership Percentage In The UFC

UFC President Dana White believes UFC Lightweight Champion Conor McGregor deserves to own a percentage of the world’s premier MMA organization.

On Tuesday, White spoke to MMAjunkie and said McGregor deserves to make more money.

“I have a feeling we’re going to have that conversation,” White said. “And I don’t mind it. I welcome that conversation. He deserves it.”

White was then asked about whether or not McGregor will receive an ownership percentage of the UFC.

In the past, McGregor has said he wants to own a part of the UFC and wants to be partners with the promotion instead of just being one of their fighters.

“It’s never been done, but anything is possible,” White said. “There’s a lot of people who feel like they’re worth this, and they’re worth that. We know what this kid’s worth.”

This Saturday, McGregor will compete in what is already one of the biggest fights in combat sports history. McGregor will fight Floyd “Money” Mayweather in his first professional boxing match at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas.
