Dana White rejects Conor McGregor vs. Max Holloway fight idea.
Conor McGregor broke his ankle late in the first round of his UFC 264 fight against Dustin Poirier. Since then, McGregor has been on a path of destruction that resulted in McGregor making many controversial comments.
It appears that Dana White rejected the idea of a fight for McGregor.
Recently, UFC star Max Holloway stated that he is on the shortlist to become Conor McGregor’s next opponent when he returns to the UFC. This was said before Holloway’s fight against No. 3 ranked Yair Rodriguez.
Holloway, who is ranked No. 1 in the featherweight, faced Yair Rodriguez at UFC Fight Night 197. He won the fight by unanimous decision. After that, many fans wondered if he would fight Conor McGregor next.
While speaking during the post-UFC Fight Night 197 press conference, UFC President Dana White spoke about Holloway’s next opponent. White rejected the idea of McGregor and Holloway facing off against each other.
“I don’t know what’s next for Max, but it makes sense to see him and Volkanovski again. Conor isn’t even, Conor is still hurt. Even talking about Conor is silly.”
We will have to wait and see what form Conor McGregor will be in once he returns to the Octagon. McGregor is expected to be out of action for a year as he is set to return asap.
