Conor McGregor has achieved substantial success in life, which is almost immeasurable. After accomplishing everything that is there to accomplish, one can lose the drive and hunger needed to achieve more. Such seems to be the case with McGregor, who has delved into an extravagant lifestyle where achieving more is of no relevance.
He has earned it, so he can do whatever he wants to. Dana White recognizes how money can play a role in changing one’s life. The good news for all MMA fans is that Conor McGregor will soon make a comeback; Dana White confirmed that he expects to see him next year.
Dana White on Conor McGregor
Recently, in an interview with Piers Morgan, Dana White spoke about Conor Mcgregor and the impact money has had on him. “He is back in the gym, He’s training,” White said, as quoted by mmajunkie.usatoday.com.
“I expect to see Conor fighting next year. Here’s what happens, Piers, and you know this – I’m sure you’ve seen this with colleagues and friends and people that you know, once a certain level of money is attained, to be the person that you were coming up, to be that hungry and work that hard and be that dedicated to the sport, or whatever craft it is you do, money changes everything.
White further said: "Conor McGregor has made that kind of money. It’s not a knock. It’s just a fact. When we sold the company in 2016, this was sort of a Microsoft of fighting. There were a lot of people that made a lot of money, and a lot of people left and they went and retired, or moved onto – you have to have a certain type of drive to make that kind of money, and you’ve seen guys in this sport when they make that kind of money, they’ll fight a lot less like Conor has, or they go on losing streaks because you are not that same person once you get that kind of money”.
