“Every time we go to Abu Dhabi we always have a crazy billboard, we also have crazy billboards in Madison Square Garden (New York). Choosing one is difficult and what everyone is waiting and excited for is the return of Conor McGregor “, says White exclusively on TNT Sports.
The president of the UFC expects the Irish legend to close his personal controversy with the US anti-doping agency (USADA) and pass the relevant tests to be able to compete again: “We are waiting for Conor to enter the USADA control system. We will see what happens.” USADA has to say when it enters the system.
Dana White sees the UFC at a very good moment right in the season in which it turns 30: “I think that in this era in which we are now, if you bring some friends to see the UFC now, it doesn’t matter if it’s in person or watching it on TV, there’s no way they’re going to walk away and not like it and not want to see it again. It’s just impossible with the level of talent we have right now.”
He also has words for one of the divisions that he is reviving, the heavyweight division. This Saturday, July 22, Tom Aspinall faces Marcin Tybura in that category, you will see him as usual in Eurosport, and White believes that if the Englishman wins in London he would be a serious contender to challenge Jon Jones for the belt.
The heavyweight division is super exciting right now. You have Jon Jones as the champion. Obviously a win for Tom Aspinall would be huge. Imagine if we can end a fight between an Englishman and Jon Jones.
Jones puts his belt on the line in November at UFC 295: “There’s no question the heavyweight division is back, it’s fun and exciting. It’s got big guys with knockout power, guys with ground game. And then you’ve got Jon Jones, who is the greatest of all time, so it’s a good time for the heavyweight.”
