UFC President Dana White and UFC featherweight champion Conor McGregor finally reunited following their beef over the Irishman’s refusal to attend the Las Vegas press event to promote his now-scrapped UFC 200 headliner against Nate Diaz.
McGregor and White headed upstairs of the Montage Hotel in Beverley Hills, followed by three huge bodyguards, for a private dinner to discuss ‘big business’ as McGregor likes to call it.
According to sources via TMZ, the two men ‘hugged when they first met;’ however, it was ‘a very aggressive embrace … the kind you could hear from down the hall.’
The two-hour meeting seemed to go well as McGregor left the meeting with a huge smile on his face, along with White later posting a happy Instagram pic with UFC CEO Lorenzo Fertitta:
It looks as thought the two sides have settled their differences and an announcement regarding McGregor’s next booking could be near. The identity of the Irishman’s upcoming fight are unknown, but White recently stating he would defend his 145-pound championship against the winner of UFC 200’s Jose Aldo vs. Frankie Edgar interim title fight next.
The rematch that was originally planned between Nate Diaz is certainly a possibility, as McGregor is obsessed with avenging his first UFC loss after he was submitted him in the second round of their first fight at MArch’s UFC 196.
McGregor could also hold out until the winner of Aldo vs Edgar II is settled and go on to unify his title with the winner of the interim title bout, possibly headlining the UFC’s first New York card of UFC 205 later this year.
And finally, McGregor could possibly co-headline a super fight boxing match between legend Floyd ‘Money’ Mayweather Jr.. The two megastars have recently been linked to talks of negotiating a possible ‘Boxing vs MMA’ bout where Mayweather would be looking to achieve his 50th professional win of his undefeated career.
