Dana White Says Conor McGregor Won’t be Fighting Again Until End of Spring
By FCF Staff
Following his historic win at UFC 205, Conor McGregor announced that he’ll be taking a break, and Dana White has provided a timeline for the star’s return.
After McGregor stopped Eddie Alvarez to win the lightweight title, the featherweight champ announced that he’s an expecting father. The Irish fighter also said he planned on taking a break as a result.
In a recent interview with the L.A. Times, White had this to say about McGregor and his next bout:
“He won’t fight before May,” White said. “His girl [Dee Devlin] gets super stressed out when he fights. He doesn’t want her having any of that stress while she’s pregnant. He’s good. He should take time off. He’s been fighting nonstop. Nothing wrong with him taking time off. It’s good for him and her and it’s good for the baby.”
White went on to argue that the UFC has moved forward and endured periods without their biggest names before. The UFC President listed the absence of Chuck Liddell, Anderson Silva and Georges St-Pierre as examples.
