“Conor McGregor will fight again,” White said, adding that he was due to sit down with the Irishman for face-to-face talks to discuss the future in a matter of days, following McGregor’s will-he-won’t-he speculation.”Me and Conor communicate every day. We’ve talking all this week. Things are good with Conor and I and we’ll get something figured out soon.”Conor likes to be in a position where he holds the cards and he does what he wants to do. And, you know, he and I figure out how to work together and how to make it all happen.”
“Hey guys quick announcement, I’ve decided to retire from the sport formally known as ‘Mixed Martial Art’ today. 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!”
I want to move forward, with my fans of all faiths and all backgrounds.
All faiths challenge us to be our best selves.
It is one world and one for all ❤️
Now see you in the Octagon.

The former UFC featherweight and lightweight champion is targeting a rematch with current 155lbs king Khabib Nurmagomedov but next up for the undefeated Russian will almost certainly be the winner of this weekend’s interim lightweight title fight between Max Holloway and Dustin Poirier.
That means that McGregor will likely have to fight his way back into contention but fortunately for fans, there are no shortage of intriguing opponents at lightweight.
Anyone who really bought he was retiring is a fool.
