Recently Dana White said in an interview “I don’t know if [McGregor is] on drugs, or what his deal is. But to come and do this and to act like this — you’re talking about a guy who had a baby,” White said. “He just had a kid. This is how you’re acting? You have a son at home.”
But since then White has said that things are good between him and Conor.
Joe Rogan longtime commentator in UFC is not happy with this preferential treatment.
“Switch it around; imagine if Ray Borg threw that dolly and Conor were inside,” he said on a recent episode of his podcast, “The Joe Rogan Experience.”
“He’d be gone, his career would be over. That’s one of the more fuc**d-up things about this, is that you know Conor is getting special treatment. He is, and that’s not good for anybody.”
McGregor is the biggest star UFC has produced his loud mouth antics have earned him millions of dollars. But this time he took it too far.
But after condemning the Irishman’s actions, White has revealed things were “good,” and he was willing to move past the incident.
Longtime UFC commentator Joe Rogan believes that mindset and the preferential treatment McGregor is receiving could create a real problem for the company.
The UFC has never had a star shine as brightly as McGregor, who markets himself better than any fighter ever has.
His actions, however, robbed UFC fans of witnessing three fights in Brooklyn, meaning further legal action could be on its way.
Rogan stated that the Irishman should do everything in his power to try to settle the suits out of the courtroom and avoid felony charges.
“Michael Chiesa, I’m sad that he got cut, but Chiesa is a tough bastard, he will be fine,” Rogan said.
“He is probably pissed off, will sue Conor and make a sh*tload of money suing him. But what if it hit Rose [Namajunas]? The fu*king world would hate him. What if Rose was blinded in one eye because of that?
“If I was Conor, I would settle every fu*king thing outside of a courtroom because if he loses and he gets a felony, he’s f****d. He probably won’t even be able to come into the country.”
Next court date is on June 14 so let’s wait and watch.
