Dana White Says Conor McGregor Could Get UFC Ownership Stake

Dana White talks to Conor McGregor

Conor McGregor has made it known in the past that he’d like to become partners with the UFC, and it seems that Dana White is now open to that idea.

Asked at yesterday’s Mayweather vs. McGregor press conference whether it was possible that ‘The Notorious’ could become a part owner in the company, the UFC President indicated that he wasn’t ruling it out.

“It’s never been done but anything is possible,” White told reporters. “There’s a lot of people who feel like they’re worth this and they’re worth that — we know what this kid’s worth.”

The fact that White was wearing a ‘McGregor Sports And Entertainment’ t-shirt at the time shows just how caught up in the moment he is leading into Saturday night’s unprecedented showdown in the ring, and it seems that the Irish fighter is also appreciative of what the UFC have done for him.

“I have a great partnership with the people I’m involved with and let’s see where it goes but the sky is most certainly the limit,” McGregor said.

Whatever happens, McGregor clearly believes that despite already being at the top of the game, that he’s not reached the top of the mountain yet.

“It’s all about levels. You go from one level to the next level to the next level so I’ve been continually climbing up the ranks from fighting on the prelims to on the main card to in the main event to world titles to multiple world titles to co-promoting. We’re climbing levels.”
