Dana White Eyeing Up ‘Headline’ Return For Conor McGregor

Conor McGregor might’ve just gotten the worst injury of his career – but he’s not ready to hang it up. One of the richest athletes of the world is gearing up for another blockbuster return.

“It would depend on who he’s fighting but yeah, Conor [McGregor] coming back is a headliner,” White told Pardon My Take in quotes published by The Mirror.

“It’s basically going to be all about when can he start kicking again and, more importantly, when can he start taking kicks again. That will determine when he fights again.”

McGregor is hopeful to return as soon as possible, and has been flirting with many including Michael Chandler and Max Holloway on social media.

“I feel like I could kick right now,” McGregor added in quotes published by The Independent. “I honestly feel like I could kick right now, but I’ve just got to listen to the doctors, listen to the people that are guiding me.

“That’s what I’ve done so far, I’ve committed myself to the work and I’m back on the feet. It’s so good to be back on the feet.”

At the same time White dismissed Holloway for potential comeback.

“I don’t know what’s next for Max, but it does make sense to see him and Volkanovski again,” White said. “Conor’s not even – Conor’s still hurt. To even talk about Conor is silly.”
