Dana White admits UFC star Conor McGregor may never fight again

Conor McGregor

McGregor has been in the news often since his boxing debut and loss to Floyd Mayweather Jr. on August 26. Aldo believes that even if McGregor competes in a unification bout versus Ferguson next, there's a chance he loses the UFC belt.

"The UFC has to make him humble a little bit because other guys say, 'Oh, Conor do this?"

Jose Aldo and Tony Ferguson have both been vocal about wanting the UFC to put pressure on McGregor to either defend his title or vacate because it's been nearly two years since he knocked Aldo out for the featherweight championship.

There's still no confirmation as to whether or not Conor McGregor really did get himself into a bar fight with members of the Kinahan drug cartel in Ireland on Sunday night, but that hasn't stopped a ton of European tabloids from running the story (without his name, to avoid potential libel lawsuits if it's all bogus).

Another potential and risky opponent for the Irishman is Khabib Nurmagomedov, who fights Edson Barboza at UFC 219 on December 30.

One thing that's for certain, however, is that White isn't bending when it comes to McGregor's constant demand that UFC make him part owner.

White said, "I've got guys that made less than that, and were lawyers, and went to school their whole life and quit working". You've got to want this guy to fight, ' " White said.

White did address the large entourage that has made the rounds with McGregor of late by saying, "When he travels, he has got people for days with him". If it's true, I'm sure we'll find out.

"He's got a new nutritionist and is having way less problems with his weight now, he is in the 170s now".

Ultimately, White and UFC are left waiting to see if McGregor returns to fighting.

"We were gonna fight him, regardless of what Audie says".

A source said: "Dana White isn't the only one who fears that Conor's UFC career is over".

"Money changes everything", White said. "When you make that kind of money, you're that famous and you're a professional athlete, you're gonna have an overload of cling-ons". "Right now, with him it's not about defend or vacate".

Irish police said they aren't investigating because "there is no report on this matter and no complaint from any injured parties, patrons of the pub or the pub itself and no statements were taken", according to an Irish police spokesman.

And so, White continues to work toward a new deal that hopefully can work for both sides.
