“(Aldo head coach) Andre Pederneiras told me – he’s not joking, he’s dead serious – that I better make sure that Conor McGregor does not touch Jose Aldo once during this entire tour,” White said on FOX Sports 1’s UFC Fight Night 62 post-fight show. “The level of disrespect that’s coming out of (McGregor’s) mouth will not be followed by the level of disrespect by him being touched.”
“I better sleep, eat my Wheaties and be ready on this trip to keep these two from touching each other, which I’m very conscious of,” White said. “It’s going to fun. It’s going to be interesting, and I can’t wait for that fight. It’s going to be the biggest featherweight fight ever.”
Working on a global media tour, UFC President Dana White tells FOX Sports 1 that he hopes a Jones-DC situation doesn’t take place on one of their 10 global stops with Jose Aldo and Conor McGregor.
