Dana White brings Tony Khabib reference and claims Conor McGregor as his favorite
When MMA fighter and current UFC lightweight champion Conor in an interview in Ireland said, he has his own promotion company now and if he wanted to fight Floyd no one could stop him; people thought Dana and Conor's relationship will start having problems. But, McGregor still remains Dana's most liked fighter so far.
Dana always has been speaking about the dedication Conor shows for his fights and still claims, he has never seen any player like Conor so far. Dana was recently asked about how he felt about Conor's reaction on Tony Khabib Fight and he totally defended The lightWeight champion.
Conor text me and said, ‘I can’t believe you’re going to pay that bum Tony Ferguson $1. You shouldn’t pay that guy a dime. He was there, made weight, you lined up a fight for him with Michael Johnson [after Khabib didn’t make weight] and he turned it down. (Explicit) bum. You shouldn’t pay him a dime.’
He further added:
That’s Conor’s mentality. He ain’t just talking because I’ve been standing in his living room saying, ‘Conor, your opponent fell out,’ he doesn’t give a s**t. Everybody thinks I kiss Conor’s ass, yes I treat Conor different. I’ve never dealt with a fighter like this in my life. The difference is this kid will fight anyone, anywhere, anytime and he means it. It’s one of the many things I love about Conor McGregor.
This statement from Dana White proves that he will love to have Conor on his side and is still a Mcgregor fan not because he talks but for his dedication towards the game. Recently Conor McGregor and Dana are trying to fix a most hyped Boxing VS MMA match with Floyd Mayweather. As per the sources, the game will surely take place in 2017 or at the beginning of 2018. If The fight get's lined up, McGregor will surely bag around $100 million from the game.
Meanwhile, Dana is busy with the upcoming showcase of UFC and McGregor is enjoying his recent fatherhood. We are still positive that Mayweather promotion will come to the mid-point and sign up for the most desired game that both UFC and Boxing fans are waiting for as Floyd is officially out of retirement to fight Conor McGregor.
