Dana White: UFC will punish Conor McGregor too

Conor McGregor

"If you do a fight that big, you've got do it in Vegas", White told TMZ. When speaking with TMZ Sports on Monday, the UFC president said that McGregor has "gotta be punished by the law first" and "let's see what happens in NY", when asked about the company's impending disciplinary ruling on the MMA sensation.

McGregor did turn himself into the authorities after the attack, plus fellow UFC fighter Michael Chiesa did file a police report on the incident.

Diaz's last fight was in August 2016 when he lost to Conor McGregor via majority decision. He's got to be punished by the law first.

Following up, Ariel Helwani of MMA Fighting claims that neither McGregor nor lightweight king Khabib Nurmagomedov were mooted as potential opponents, leaving the likely suspects of Eddie Alvarez, Dustin Poirier and Kevin Lee.

White has however refused to confirm that a deal is in place for the lightweight to fight at that event. "Back in August of 2017, Diaz's boxing coach Richard Perez said that Diaz will needs "$20-30 million" for the McGregor trilogy. "Let's see what happens in NY". Now, a Nurmagmoedov vs. McGregor showdown looms as one of the biggest fights the promotion can make.

Nate Diaz is getting ready to make a high-profile UFC return, as he's sick of waiting around on the sidelines.

UFC 227 will take place at Staples Center, in Diaz' s home state of California.

"No [it will not be in Russia]".

"So he's not looking at, in Brooklyn, generally, you wouldn't get jail time for this, especially if it's your first offense, which I understand this is".

"There's been a lot of talk about this Khabib fight and it seems to be brewing towards this one", said Roddy.
