Dana White comments on sexual assault complaint against Conor McGregor


Conor McGregor’s boss doesn’t know what’s going on with him either.On September 12, news broke that former UFC two-division champion McGregor (22-4) had been arrested again. McGregor was taken into custody for attempted sexual assault and exposure to indecent exposure while on vacation in Corsica. Police released McGregor without charge and a spokesperson for McGregor denied the charges soon after. At the UFC Fight Night 177 post-fight press conference, the president was asked UFC, Dana White, if McGregor’s current situation could prevent the Irish superstar’s hypothetical return to the cage.

“I don’t know enough about Conor’s situation,” he said. “I know what you read. I read the same things. Conor is retired. I haven’t spoken to him. I’m sure he doesn’t need my help or my advice, but if he did, he can call. ”

The UFC president then drew a comparison between McGregor and fellow multi-divisional champion Henry Cejudo, teasing that they could one day fight if they wanted to. The last time he competed, at UFC 246 in January, McGregor crushed Donald Cerrone on his way to a TKO first-round victory.

“Cejudo also has a lot of it in the gas tank,” he added. “He could definitely fight again. But I think when you have a guy like Conor and Cejudo that’s been doing it for a long time and lost weight, dieting, all the bulls ** t you go through and then you make a lot of money, you don’t want to do it. A lot of people don’t think Conor is really done. ”

If confirmed, the arrest in Corsica would only be the latest in a long string of public incidents McGregor has been involved in, including the crash of a fan’s phone attempting to take a picture of him last March. and an altercation with a man. in a pub last August.
