Dana White is heading to Liverpool, England this weekend for UFC Fight Night 130, where he intends to have discussions with Conor McGregor about his future.
“We’re going to sit down and talk about his future and what’s next,” White told the UFC’s new broadcast and streaming partner ESPN on SportsCenter.
Of course, McGregor’s immediate future is still somewhat unclear given that he has to answer criminal charges in New York related to his senseless attack on a bus filled with fighters during UFC 223 fight week back in April.
“Obviously, he has to deal with it in June,” White said of McGregor’s troubles with the law. “I’m flying to Liverpool this weekend for a fight there, and he and I are going to meet in Liverpool.”
“I have nothing to do with the legal issues, he’ll need to figure that out on his own.”
It’ll be interesting to see how the meeting between the two goes, particularly given that a recent Instagram post from McGregor featured a picture of himself along with the caption, “Nobody is my boss.”
Relations between the two appeared strained after McGregor’s bus attack, which White branded as “despicable” and “disgusting”, but since then the UFC President has noticeably backed off and so far has the UFC hasn’t opted to hand out any punishment to the superstar for his action.
