For the longest time now, fans have been questioning when we’re going to see the return of Conor McGregor. It’s been two and a half years since he broke his leg against Dustin Poirier but in the last twelve months, he seems to have just about reached a full recovery. He’s training again, but there’s been no official announcement when it comes to an actual fight getting booked.

Of course, many fight fans want to see the Irishman get back in the cage. With someone of his stature, though, things are always a bit more complicated.

In his post-fight press conference after UFC 298, Dana White provided an update on McGregor and was asked directly whether or not he thinks he’ll return to action.

White questions McGregor’s future

“If you had s*** loads of money, would you be sitting here right now asking me this f***ing question? No you would not. That’s just answered your question.”

“I don’t know [if Conor will fight in the UFC again]. Conor has got a lot of money. Anytime we get Conor, we’ll be happy, we’ll be thrilled when he comes and fights. Money complicates a lot of things. He just filmed a movie, he’s gotta do the press for the movie and he’s got obligations with that. He does wanna fight this year, but we’ll see what happens.”

“Conor McGregor has probably been one of the best business partners we’ve ever had. Getting Conor to show up to s*** on time is a problem, but Conor, as far as the business goes? Everybody talks about how Conor used to be on the doll and all this stuff. For a guy that was on the doll, Conor McGregor is a very good business man.”

“When it’s time to dig in, get to work and make money, he’s probably the most incredible partner we’ve ever had, to be honest with you.”
