Dana White Shoots Down Donald Cerrone vs. Conor McGregor Talk
By FCF Staff
Recently Donald Cerrone teased that he is “waiting” on Conor McGregor, but Dana White has denied that the promotion is looking at a bout between the stars.
Since Cerrone’s social media post there’s been extensive speculation as to whether the UFC is targeting a fight between “Cowboy” and McGregor. But, when White was asked about the rumor recently by TMZ , the UFC President said this (quotes via MMA Fighting):
“We’re not even thinking about [what’s next],” said White, while referring to the Nevada Commission’s investigation into the post-fight brawl that followed McGregor’s loss to Khabib Nurmagomedov in October. “It’s not even worth talking about because we don’t know how long the suspensions are going to be, what their fines are going to be. We don’t know the penalties yet, so you can’t even think about fights until we know what the penalties are.”
“That’s not true,” said White. “Absolutely not true. Obviously that’s the fight that ‘Cowboy’ Cerrone wants but that’s not true. We haven’t even thought about an opponent for either one of those guys yet, meaning Khabib or Conor.”
Cerrone is coming off a first round, submission win over Mike Perry earlier this month.
