Dana White gives huge update on Conor McGregor's return — UFC News

In fact, the "American Gangster" feels the opposite.

During a recent Men's Journal interview with strike coach Owen Roddy to promote McGregor's new documentary Notorious, it seemed like the lightweight champ is eager to get in the octagon, within the year if UFC president Dana White is to believed, though the opponent is still up in the air. Despite his victory, however, St-Pierre's accomplishment didn't come without a bit of criticism. Mayweather-McGregor produced a live gate of $55.4 million and reportedly between around 4.4 million PPV buys (between $89.95 to $99.95 a pop), the second highest in both categories behind Mayweather-Manny Pacquiao in 2015.

"People said, Georges St-Pierre with four years off, he's not gonna be as fast as he was. And that's it, it's the only heavy shot I've ever taken".

"Well, he couldn't. He struggled there. I was wobbled once".

And Pugmire revealed that 'White said he'll hash out the main event for UFC 219 in Las Vegas by the end of the week' and that McGregor's return 'will be in Vegas' and 'could be on that date'.

"In the Mayweather fight, it was fatigue. I will get it done this week", White said.

Mystic Mac is now a household name, and the MMA community eagerly awaits his return.

And as the next show in Sin City is UFC 219 in December and still without a headline fight, McGregor could be providing some festive cheer to his millions of fans wordwide.

"It's very hard to deny reality". He's a living legend, and in respect I'll do that. One loss since 2001.

The Fertittas turned their $2 million purchase of UFC into a $4.025 billion sale last July to the Hollywood agency WME-IMG. Beat all of the guys in the next generation, and left. It's an unusual and nasty feeling.

With Cris Cyborg teasing a move to boxing, a fight with Holly Holm may be off the table. White is currently in the process of getting his boxing promoter's license. Is that even illegal? And do you think that the Canadian will defend the middleweight title?
