Dana White and Conor McGregor will meet in Las Vegas in the near future, and he believes a fight between McGregor and lightweight champion Khabib Nurmagomedov is a strong possibility.
Following a UFC Fight Night event on Sunday in Liverpool, England, White said a face-to-face meeting with McGregor, originally expected to take place in England will now happen in Las Vegas, White’s hometown.
“Conor and I are going to meet in Las Vegas,” White said. “I’m pretty confident [a lightweight title fight] is a fight that Conor wants, and I’m pretty confident that is a fight Khabib wants. So yeah, I could see that happening.”
I’ve been told that unforeseen scheduling conflicts prevented the expected meeting last night between Dana White and Conor McGregor but that the two will reschedule in the next few weeks. #UFCLiverpool

McGregor (21-3) hasn’t fought in the UFC since November 2016 and is currently facing assault and criminal mischief charges in Brooklyn. The charges stem from his involvement in an attack of a UFC bus in April. His next court date is June 14. He was on the bus that McGregor attacked and was allegedly the Irishman’s target. He laughed off the attack.
All the mometum from this bus attack is gone, Conor will have to come up with another stunt to try and drive up his measly UFC paycheck.
