The UFC’s president Dana White revealed that he and Conor McGregor spoke via text after yesterday’s incident at the UFC 223 media day.
For a man who so often claimed that things never stray past the realms of ‘business’ in his line of work, things sure seemed to effect Conor McGregor on a personal level during UFC 223’s ongoing fight week.
The confrontation between the team of Khabib Nurmagomedov and Conor’s longtime sparring partner Artem Lobov appeared to spark a fiery fury in the Irishman and at yesterday’s media day, McGregor and a group of approximately twenty others stormed a bus containing several well-known fighters.
And although Nurmagomedov was the target, the injuries sustained to both Ray Borg and Michael Chiesa have resulted in two of UFC 223’s most eagerly-anticipated bouts being scrapped. A lot of the details are still up in the air, but in an appearance on First Things First on FS1, the UFC’s president Dana White broke down a conversation he had with McGregor just after the incident.
