UFC 257: Conor McGregor Makes His Return To The Octagon

'If you talk about the more flamboyant guy, the one who did some insane stuff that you only see in movies and stuff like that, I would say maybe a guy like Anderson Silva or Vitor Belfort'.

White also confirmed he had cleared the air with McGregor after a spat between the pair previous year over the Irishman's next opponent.

But he could make time for a lucrative crossover showdown similar to the one McGregor put on against Floyd "Money" Mayweather Jr in Las Vegas in 2017 with a high-profile showdown having been mooted for over a year. Who you got? I'm going to the gym, tell me who's showing up on Saturday.' He's that guy right now.

In less than two weeks, the MMA world will know if he can do it again when he steps in the octagon with Poirier at UFC 257, which takes place January 23 at Etihad Arena in Abu Dhabi.

"The way this kid is right now, mentally, physically, emotionally, this kid is on and ready to fight", White said.

WBC President Mauricio Sulaiman has revealed that McGregor would first need to beat a ranked fighter before he would be considered for a title shot. [You are] not getting any younger.

"I'm meeting with Khabib in Abu Dhabi to see what's next for him". This is one of the things that I have always given this kid so much credit for.

In 2018, Musk had cited the country's challenging regulatory environment as among the reasons for not foraying into India. Electric Vehicle Manufacturer Tesla will soon start its operations in India with an R&D unit in Bengaluru.

Further, Dana White also promoted the upcoming Pay-Per-View by stating that, "If you are a Conor McGregor fan, and you love everything about Conor McGregor fights, then don't miss this one". It's not really what I do.

"I like Dustin. I think he's a good fighter", McGregor said.

"And you have all these other guys lined up".

White remains optimistic of convincing Khabib Nurmagomedov to return for a lucrative rematch against McGregor and has urged "The Notorious" to take advantage of his prime in MMA before perhaps moving into boxing in 2022.

McGregor returns to action against Dustin Poirier in a rematch later this month.

Nurmgomedov (29-0) retired after submitting Justin Gaethje at UFC 254 in October.

But Khabib said back in December: "My [lightweight] belt will [eventually] be taken by the victor of Dustin and Conor".
