Believe it or not, the fighter who went berserk and attacked a van, injuring some of the fighters contained within and seriously messing up an entire UFC card, is still employed by the company.
Despite the night spent in jail, and ongoing legal troubles stemming from the incident.
Man, it must be great to be Conor McGregor. You can get away with murder. Literally – McGregor could probably kill any other fighter on the UFC’s roster, and the UFC would be cool with it just as long as McGregor fights for them again.
So. Dana White, the boss, says he’s going to meet with McGregor soon in Ireland to discuss the young, errant lad’s future. White will probably come bearing gifts, such as a wheelbarrow full of gold bars and the head of two or three non-superstar UFC fighters suspended in jars of formaldehyde.
The only man ever to simultaneously hold two UFC weight-class championships will meet with UFC president Dana White this weekend in Liverpool, England, to discuss the former lightweight and featherweight champion’s next career moves, White told ESPN on Wednesday.
“We’re going to sit down and talk about his future and what’s next,” White said.
“I have nothing to do with the legal issues, he’ll need to figure that out on his own,” White said.
“Obviously, he has to deal with [his legal situation] in June,” White said. “I’m flying to Liverpool this weekend for a fight there, and he and I are going to meet in Liverpool.”
