With the craziness swirling around recently retired MMA superstar Conor McGregor, his old Boss, Dana White, is speaking out on Conor’s ask for some equity in the UFC.
Earlier Tuesday, McGregor announced on Twitter that he was retiring from mixed martial arts.
“Hey guys quick announcement, I’ve decided to retire from the sport formally known as ‘Mixed Martial Art’ today,” he tweeted. “I wish all my old colleagues well going forward in competition. I now join my former partners on this venture, already in retirement. Proper Pina Coladas on me fellas!”
White spoke to TMZ Sports about Conor’s request and he shut it down fast.
“That’s never gonna happen,” White said. “Listen, if you want to own a piece of the company, you have to put up the money to buy a piece of the company. That’s how it works.”
McGregor, 21-4, has not won a professional combat fight since 2016.
Prior to an MMA loss last fall against Khabib Nurmagomedov, he was defeated by Floyd Mayweather in an August 2017 boxing match.
He’s not getting squat.
