Dana White Addresses Conor McGregor’s UFC Ownership Demands

Ask Trump to give my father a visa’ Khabib addresses his coach over dad’s US entry issue

The UFC reigning lightweight champion's father who has trained him since his early steps in the sport and still trains him, hasn't attended neither of his son's fights on American soil due to the United States visa issues that have dogged him ever since Khabib debuted in the octagon in 2012. While some may have assumed White would grow dollar signs in his eyes while gushing about the potential to promote St-Pierre facing off with either an undefeated Nurmagomedov or the company's biggest star in McGregor, he instead seemed as annoyed as some fans are at St-Pierre's history of gathering titles only to relinquish them. I want to be a true partner, similar in the way I was in the Floyd fight.

In the months since giving up the title, St-Pierre has explained in-depth that bulking up to 185 pounds from his longtime frame as a welterweight led to some stomach issues.

Do you think Conor McGregor should at least be a co-promoter for his fights in the UFC?

"From my perspective, it's a very winning situation". For UFC, it's a big risk for them. Like I said, I'm older. I know Khabib, I've met Khabib many times. "He's a bigger guy".

"Yeah, that's probably not going to happen", White told reporters, including MMAjunkie, following Dana White's Contender Series 16 event Tuesday night. "He gave up the 170-pound belt, he gave up the 185-pound belt".

UFC president Dana White confirmed on Tuesday that McGregor didn't receive any of the demands he was seeking past year when attempting to negotiate his return to the UFC but it seems he did get a bigger payday to fight Khabib Nurmagomedov on October 6.

White isn't eager to comply with St-Pierre's desire to fight Nurmagomedov or McGregor, but he's warm to the idea of having the future UFC Hall of Famer back in the octagon this year.

"We haven't talked, but it sounds like we will", the UFC President said. "Toronto makes sense. Toronto wouldn't be bad".
