Dana White Names One Of His Most Loyal Fighters
After suffering a devastating injury at UFC 264, McGregor prepares to return to the UFC octagon sometime this year.
And despite the fighter being sidelined, he’s managed to stay in news headlines, including a comment coming from UFC President Dana White.
White has never been afraid to express himself, particularly when it comes to his fighters. But MGregor seems to have a better relationship with one another than most.
“You know better than anybody, how f–king dirty the fight business is, man,” White said.
“It doesn’t take much to get somebody to cut somebody’s throat in the fight business. But there’s been a lot of fighters that have been incredibly loyal to me, and I’ve been incredibly loyal to them.”
“Conor McGregor is one of them. Conor’s a f–king handful, boy.”
McGregor is a well-known figure in the UFC, bringing a raucous and aggressive style to the business.
“…The Ronda Rouseys, the Chuck Liddells, Matt Hughes, Conor McGregor, there’s a lot. And I don’t wanna mention people, but there’s been a lot of fighters over the past 20 years that have been very loyal,” White added.
McGregor does not appear to be planning on retiring anytime soon. He’s targeted to return in the middle of this year.
