Dana White says McGregor will never fight in Las Vegas again

Dana White in an interview on The Herd with Colin Cowherd has said that the “Notorious” Conor McGregor will never fight in Las Vegas again. 

Conor has broken PPV records in the MGM Grand, the UFC venue where he has fought the most, and White believes that the Nevada Athletic Commission (NAC) has made a foolish move:

“Conor McGregor hit me yesterday and said, ‘I don’t ever want to fight in Nevada again. Ever,'” White said. “How does that make sense for the state of Nevada? That you’re gonna try to fine this kid and Nate that kind of money, it just makes people not want to come fight in our state. And that’s not a good thing.”

White’s comments come on the back of McGregor’s fine of $150,000 and 50 hours of community service.

What do you think? Is this penalty to the fighters too harsh?

McGregor: Diaz was ‘like Homer Simpson’ at UFC 196

Conor McGregor has spent five months talking about his view of what happened between he and Nate Diaz at UFC 196 on March 5th 2016.

McGregor, the UFC’s featherweight champion, compared Diaz to Homer J Simpson in the “The Simpsons” episode where he begins boxing Friday at a gym day here in Vegas. Diaz, of course, beat McGregor by second-round submission at UFC 196 in Las Vegas.

Below is the episode of The Simpsons…

 

The two will meet again in the main event of UFC 202 on Aug. 20 here in Las Vegas at T-Mobile Arena. McGregor is trying to avenge the first loss of his UFC run. The first bout took place at 170 pounds when McGregor usually competes at 145 and Diaz is a typical 155-pounder. And the second fight will be at the same weight. McGregor (19-3) believes he has those problems solved and he’s predicting a second-round knockout of Diaz this time around.

 

“It’s a challenge I have,” McGregor said. “He’s a big, slow Mexican beanbag. But I’m gonna take another stab at it. Second round. Mystic Mac.”
