Dana White still doesn’t know which weight class Chandler vs McGregor will be in

The long-awaited return of Conor McGregor to the octagon is finally confirmed. The former double champion is coaching  season 31 of TUF before facing Michael Chandler.

UFC President Dana White recently confirmed McGregor made demands in order to coach on TUF again.

During an appearance on The Pat McAfee Show, Dana White explained that McGregor requested to bring two guys onto the show.

Although some fans and media raised concerns about the fairness of the request, White quickly dismissed these claims, saying that they would take care of the other guys.

Dana White has a great business relationship with Conor McGregor and has always been supportive of him.

In his own words, “Conor is a great partner to work with. Conor and I have never had a problem.”

White acknowledges the tremendous success of McGregor, who went from being a nobody to one of the biggest sports superstars in the world. He adds that he has never had any public blowouts with McGregor, despite the fame and wealth that come with being a superstar athlete.

Dana White also revealed that they have yet to decide on the weight class for McGregor’s return with Chandler. Although McGregor was once a lightweight (155 lbs), it’s doubtful he can make weight again.

White admitted that they are still figuring things out, including the exact weight class and date.

“When, isn’t guaranteed. When, what weight class, what are these guys doing. Conor’s filming this season of TUF with Chandler, but Conor’s still coming back from that shin break.”

It is unknown whether Conor McGregor has re-entered the USADA testing pool. To be eligible to return to the octagon, the former double champion must spend six months in the testing pool and submit two negative samples. It has been almost two years since McGregor’s last outing at UFC 264, where he broke his leg.
