A scheduled sit-down between former Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) Lightweight and Featherweight champion, Conor McGregor, and company president Dana White — which was set to go down a few weeks ago in Liverpool, England -- never materialized.
Now, the two are set to finally meet face-to-face and talk for the first time since “Notorious” crashed the UFC 223 media day a few months ago in Brooklyn, New York, setting off a series of unfortunate events which included fighter injuries and fight cancellations.
According to White’s comments to TMZ, there is no telling what will go down on June 18 when he chats with his biggest star.
”He and I are meeting on the 18th of this month,” Dana said. ”I don’t know whats gonna happen. I don’t know what Conor has planned. I don’t know what Conor and his team have worked on.”
Before then, “Notorious” will have a court hearing this Thursday (June 14, 2018) in New York to answer for his violent attack on a bus in his attempt to get at Khabib Nurmagoedov, resulting in a dolly being thrown through a window.
Indeed, there are several items, I’m sure, on the agenda for the meeting, some of which include possible punishment (insert laugh here) for his latest transgression, as well as a possible opponent for his comeback fight.
Starting with the obvious choice.
