Dana White Says Connor McGregor will Fight for Belt Soon
The long awaited return of Connor McGregor is going to be sooner than later according UFC President Dana White.
McGregor is the current lightweight champion of the world but wont be after April 7 as the UFC is stripping his belt that day and Tony Ferguson will face Khabib Nurmagomedov for the belt.
After that fight is over, the winner will get into the octagon with McGregor.
I can't wait for that day.
I like the UFC, but I love the UFC when Connor McGregor is fighting and his PPV numbers show I'm not in the minority.
Will McGregor dominate when he returns to the MMA world after cashing in on his boxing fight with Floyd Mayweather? Time will tell, but the pure fact that he is getting back into the octagon is a great sign for the UFC and their fans.
UFC 223 will take place in Brooklyn with Ferguson and Nurmagomedov fighting for a chance to win a title but maybe more importantly take on McGregor after that.
