Dana White “Happy” For McGregor

The biggest name in mixed martial arts announced his retirement in the middle of the night, but unlike Baltimore fans who saw their Colts move to Indianapolis in the cover of darkness, Dana White is happy for Conor McGregor.

McGregor main evented four of the five best drawing pay-per-views in the brand’s 25 year history, called it quits on Tuesday morning via Twitter.

When asked for comment by ESPN, UFC President Dana White decided to not mourn McGregor’s retirement, but celebrate what laid ahead for his former biggest star.

“He has the money to retire and his whiskey is KILLIN it. It totally makes sense. If I was him I would retire too. He’s retiring from fighting. Not from working. The Whiskey will keep him busy and I’m sure he has other things he’s working on. He has been so fun to watch!!! He has accomplished incredible things in this sport. I am so happy for him and I look forward to seeing him be as successful outside of the octagon as he was in it.”

While McGregor made his claim to retirement, some may see this as a ploy to get better pay or equity in the UFC, which he has demanded since his record breaking fight against Floyd Mayweather in August 2017.
