While Conor McGregor’s rise to the top has been rather quick, one thing is certain according to UFC President Dana White, McGregor doesn’t get any special treatment.
He spoke to MMAJunkie about the fair treatment of all fighters.
“Conor McGregor is one of these guys that – he did a $1.4 million gate in Ireland. He has that star potential. We don’t treat Conor any different than we’ve everybody in this f-cking organization. From Ronda (Rousey) to Rashad (Evans) to Chuck Liddell – everybody’s been treated fairly here.”
McGregor takes on Dustin Poirier on the main card of UFC 178 tonight.
