McGregor’s clash with Chandler will be the penultimate fight of his multimillion-dollar UFC contract, which White predicts may not motivate the mega-rich Irishman to keep fighting.

The veteran promoter said: “First of all, Conor called me a few days ago and was blown away by the first episode of The Ultimate Fighter and told me how lucky he was to be a part of it.”

“And I think when he was here and part of the environment and everything else, he felt it again and felt like he wanted to fight again.”

“The only thing you need to understand is that this kid has so much money. It’s like Khabib.” [Nurmagomedov] Now.

“These guys have a lot of money and it’s hard to catch them and get them to fight.”

McGregor, 34, is the biggest star in the world Story mixed martial arts and has entered the mainstream and even Hollywood.

But White is unconcerned about the gaping void the Dubliner will leave behind when he finally decides to hang up his gloves, saying: “I never worry.”

“We have a huge list of people who want to get involved and people who are willing to fight and people who want to be Conor McGregor. And be at that level.


“For the past 20 years, everyone’s been like, ‘Oh my God, what are you going to do when Chuck Liddell retires?’

“‘You’re screwed. Oh my God. GSP [Georges St-Pierre]. Anderson Silva. This and that.’

“It’s a professional sport. People come here, they do great things and they retire. You can never worry about such things.”

“It is what it is. It’s part of the game. And it is my job and that of my team to find and develop new talent.”

However, McGregor has no intention of quitting the sport anytime soon, saying “I’m hoping for a hundred more fights.”


“I hope for consistency. I hope for a run. I’ve had this on, off, on, off for a while.

“I just want it Pretty consistency works. And I hope when I come back now, it’s time.”

The delicious showdown between McGregor and Chandler will bring about an end to the rivalry that began in season 31 of The Ultimate Fighter, where they were rival trainers.
