UFC President Dana White revealed exactly why people love and hate Conor McGregor.
In an interview for the official website of UFC, UFC President Dana White revealed his thoughts about Conor McGregor’s popularity. When asked about kicking off 2020 with Conor McGregor vs Donald Cerrone, Dana White said, “Conor is one of those guys who's got this incredible personality, who has that “it” factor that makes him a big star.
But most importantly, the kid comes in and puts on unbelievably exciting fights. And everything from him showing up to the arena, to the press conference, to the weigh-ins are all just as entertaining and exciting as the fight. He’s got people on both sides—people who hate him and people who love him—but everybody is excited to see him back."
