Wrote Znayu, UFC President Dana white said the only problem is Conor McGregor.
According to white, the only thing that makes it difficult to interact with McGregor is his punctuality.
“Conor’s hard to deal with? Yes, but it’s worth it. If people ask me, what is the biggest problem with Conor, I answer, that it does not come on time. And so Conor is incredible. He’s a funny guy, funny, a great fighter, he is fun to watch. If still on time, would be just perfect. It would be perfect.
We are a global sport, so when we have a press conference, are live to the whole world. And when Conor doesn’t come on her and not doing it in 30 minutes, it is a problem. We have to fill the time and not just to fill air, but to keep people interested, fueling their desire to look further, which is hard to do in our days,” said white in an interview Barstool Sports.
