Dana White Puts Blame On Conor McGregor For Not Returning Sooner

It’s February 2024 and it’s still unclear if Conor McGregor will be fighting anytime soon.

On Tuesday, White spoke veteran reporter Kevin Iole and the question about Conor was brought up.

First the UFC CEO spoke about McGregor’s very serious injury.

“Well, first of all, he (Conor McGregor) is coming back from one of the nastiest injuries youcan come back from,” Dana White told Kevin Iole during a recent interview. “How long was Anderson Silva out when he did it? How long was Chris Weidman out when he did it? You know, the guys who break that bone – so that’s an issue right there, number one.”

White would later tell Iole that he doesn’t believe McGregor is in a rush to come back due to being financially secure.

“Number two: Conor McGregor doesn’t need the f*cking money,” White explained. “So, when you don’t need the money, it’s not as easy – I mean, Khabib (Nurmagomedov). Khabib doesn’t need the money. Khabib retired.”

As of now the belief is McGregor will return on June 29th but could be as laste as the fall.
