Dana White reveals likely time frame for McGregor's UFC return

"Get through the holidays and hopefully he starts to get the itch to come back and hopefully we can get him back this summer".

According to White, if St-Pierre ever decides to fight again, he will get matched up against a champion, but it won't be his dream bout against McGregor. The win put him on a list with McGregor, BJ Penn and Randy Couture as the only fighters to claim UFC gold in multiple weight classes.

Meanwhile, a logjam of title contenders now waits to advance while interim champion Tony Ferguson (24-3 MMA, 14-1 UFC) pushes for a title unifier. However, White shot down any notion that the UFC should have stripped McGregor of the lightweight title by now.

White's decision to publicly chastise George St-Pierre of late for doing the same thing, despite GSP being transparent about it after voluntarily vacating the middleweight title he won in November, also comes across as contrary to how he has handled McGregor.

"You guys know I didn't believe that McGregor-Mayweather would happen and it did, so anything is possible. And I still don't", White said.

It is also said by the officials that the security forces are still searching for the other terrorist. The militant, identified as Noor Muhammad Tantray, was on the wanted list of the Indian Army.

"I don't know, man". "I actually have a meeting with those guys today".

Initial plans were to have Conor McGregor fight this weekend.

The best fight purse McGregor has earned is around £3m and there have been questions about how the UFC could possibly afford to match that figure. "I think he jumped in, grabbed some cash and went back to Canada". "It would probably be the biggest fight in UFC history and MMA history and that record wouldn't be broken for ten years".

"Tony Ferguson is the fight right now and is the move if he wants to come back".

So, ya. It's not surprising to see that White might be miffed at GSP, but to shoot down a bout with McGregor?
