Dana White: Conor McGregor's next move depends on Diaz-Pettis, Khabib-Poirier results
LAS VEGAS – The question remains: Whom will Conor McGregorface next?
UFC president Dana White on Tuesday said McGregor’s next move will depend on what happens Saturday at UFC 241 between Nate Diaz and Anthony Pettis, as well as the lightweight title unification bout between champion Khabib Nurmagomedov and interim champ Dustin Poirier at UFC 242 next month.
“I don’t know,” White said after Dana White’s Contender Series 24 at the UFC Apex in Las Vegas. “That, I don’t know. See how Saturday goes, see how September goes, and then see what happens with Conor.”
McGregor (21-4 MMA, 9-2 UFC) has made it clear he’d like to run things back with Nurmagomedov. He lost by fourth-round submission to “The Eagle” at UFC 229 and failed to recapture the lightweight title he was stripped of for not defending (he took a lucrative boxing match with Floyd Mayweather Jr. instead). A post-fight brawl ensued that left many wondering if there’s unfinished business between the two.
