Conor McGregor fractured his ankle at the end of the first round of his UFC 264 fight against Dustin Poirier. Since then McGregor has been on a path of destruction that resulted in McGregor saying a lot of controversial remarks. It seems Dana White defend Conor McGregor’s as well.
The Notorious One has been hard at work recovering from his injury over the past several months and has noticeably bulked up in anticipation of his return, though Dustin Poirier thinks he looks puffy. McGregor also never won a single fight in 2021.
Conor McGregor recently made it clear that he wants a shot at Charles Oliveira’s UFC Lightweight Championship once he returns to the Octagon and fans got excited about it as well.
While speaking with Barstool Sports’ Robbie Fox, UFC President Dana White blasted fans who are angry over Conor McGregor possibly getting a title shot, as he called them idiots.
“The problem is, every time I do a f******interview, all anybody wants to ask is – Do you think Conor McGregor is going to get a title shot? Well, that’s all they f**king ask.
Anybody who’s p*ssed off because Conor might f******get a [title shot]. You’re a f******idiot too. If that pisses you off, Jesus Christ!”
For the record, Dana White also recently said that Conor McGregor is nowhere near for a UFC Title fight just yet. Conor McGregor is expected to make his return by the Summer of this year, especially in July. We will have to wait and see if he will end up getting a title shot somewhere down the line or not.
