Conor McGregor, absent from the UFC octagons since his ankle injury last July, could return soon, hopes Dana White.
According to the eminent boss of the prestigious organization, “The Notorious”, a true MMA star who popularized the discipline a few years ago, could soon be fighting again.
“I think so, assured Dana White to a question from TMZ Sports on a return in the coming months of the Irishman. He is doing whatever it takes to recover from his leg injury. I hope he can come back this summer.”
Aged 33, Conor McGregor was injured in his second loss against Dustin Poirier (after that of January). He broke his ankle against “The Diamond”.
For Dana White, there is no doubt that a return of McGregor to the UFC octagons is essential from a financial point of view. If in terms of performance, it is far from its level of a few years ago, “The Notorious” remains a safe bet in terms of advertising and marketing. Especially with pay-per-view.
Because if Francis Ngannou-Ciryl Gane, who saw the Cameroonian retain his title against the French on Saturday in Anaheim (California), was the most beautiful heavyweight poster for years, it is not the one that has generated the most money in PPV.
