There's a 'crazy' Conor McGregor-Irish mafia brawl rumor

Since McGregor's box-office blockbuster boxing match against Floyd Mayweather in August, White has been alternately confident and cautiously optimistic about the prospect of seeing the Irish star back in the octagon. Fighting is the worst - try to get up and get punched in the face every day when you have $100 million in the bank.

That fighter is former UFC featherweight champion Jose Aldo, who is slated to challenge for the title once again when he steps inside the Octagon to fight Max Holloway in a rematch at next Saturday's UFC 218 PPV (pay-per-view) event.

'Listen, Conor McGregor may never fight again, ' White told Yahoo Sports.

Another potential and risky opponent for the Irishman is Khabib Nurmagomedov, who fights Edson Barboza at UFC 219 on December 30.

White admitted on Tuesday McGregor has done so well and has made so much money there might not be any motivation left. "Just because he's a lighter weight, he would have to have a whole lot of different types of moves in order for it to make sense for him to get in there and be able to wrestle the bigger guys". "I think everyone is waiting for that".

"I have to say about this, and I'm wearing my old, veteran crime reporter hat - I have to say that Conor McGregor is in a very risky place right now", he said.

White did address the large entourage that has made the rounds with McGregor of late by saying, "When he travels, he has got people for days with him".

In electric-only mode, the top speed is 120km/h, while the driving range is now up to 53km in the soft-top, and 55km in the coupe. All that also means a new rear window, new engine cover and new frameless doors that add up to seriously drool-worthy machine.

"Why he don't slap me when we go very close like UFC 205?"

"These people do not care who Conor McGregor is, what he stands for, how powerful he is - they will drag him down into the cesspit". "That's not the healthiest environment", White said.

"Money changes everything", White said. "But if Conor walks away and doesn't ever want to fight again, it's part of the game".

"Conor is a rich kid who is a god in Ireland". These guys make money and that's it.

While White would prefer McGregor to return and unify his 155-pound title against Tony Ferguson, he spoke out against the interim champion's demands that McGregor defend the belt or vacate it.

White attempted to explain the recent questionable behaviour, and believes that his large entourage - to which he referred to as "cling-ons" - does not help give him the right circumstances for which to focus on his fighting career. We were working on a fight for him at the end of the year.
