McGregor is weighing up his next move after being beaten by Floyd Mayweather in his debut boxing bout last August, with a possible rematch, a UFC return and both moves into WWE and Hollywood all serious options for the Irishman.
"Conor might never fight again, ' White said earlier this week". He has got $100 million in the bank. I've got guys who have made less than that, who were lawyers their whole lives and quit working. and fighting is the worst. "Money changes everything for a lot of people".
Goddard ordered McGregor out of the cage - the second time he's had words with the Irish star over his cageside demeanor - only to have McGregor curse him out and shove him as officials tried to calm the situation.
According to the president of the Association of Boxing Commission, Mike Mazzulli, the UFC brass had plans for their poster boy to headline the pay-per-view event but scrapped them immediately after seeing his behaviour at their rival promotion's latest show in Ireland. "But if Conor walks away and doesn't ever want to fight again, it's part of the game".
"He was being dealt with by the head of the ABC", White said.
"If it's true, we'll end up finding out. And he's just not ready", White said at a press conference. There was one particular rumor that gained steam in October which was centered around McGregor making an appearance in WrestleMania early next year.
White added: "He's a young, rich kid who is a god in Ireland".
He also suggested that McGregor is now living in "not the healthiest environment", adding that the 29-year-old has "an overload of clingons".
"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". These guys make money and that's it.
The details of the incident remain unconfirmed, but it's alleged that after striking one customer, McGregor then hit another who is believed to be an associate of gangland figure Graham "The Wig" Whelan, a convincted drug dealer and member of the Kinahan clan.
But this week he made clear that Ferguson wasn't in a position to make any demands about a potential unification bout. White said. "We ain't taking direction from Tony Ferguson".
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. We were working on a fight for him at the end of the year.
