White reveals McGregor’s terms for coaching TUF 31: “This is what Conor wants”
According to UFC president Dana White, it’s often the small details, rather than money, that matters when the promotion makes deals with their big stars.
A good example is when the UFC was able to secure megastar Conor McGregor to coach the upcoming season of ‘The Ultimate Fighter’.
“When you get to the level of the Conors and the Jon Jones’ and these guys, it’s the small shit. It’s all the little shit that’s around,” White recently revealed on The Pat McAfee Show.
“That just happened recently where Conor McGregor was going to coach this season of The Ultimate Fighter and he’s like, ‘Yeah, I’ll do it, but I’m bringing two guys that I want to make it right onto the show.’ Then, of course, the fucking media (says), ‘Oh, that’s not fair, and what happened to those guys?’ Shut the fuck up. So we’ll take care of the guys that aren’t on it, and this is what Conor wants, we’ll give it to him.”

Conor McGregor is a “great partner”
The UFC president seemed happy to work with the Irish superstar again.
“He’s a great partner,” White said. “Conor is a great partner to work with. Conor and I have never had a problem. You think about this kid went from nobody knew who he was to one of the biggest superstars in all of sports. You’ve never really seen any public blowouts with me and him.”
Conor McGregor will fight fellow TUF-coach Michael Chandler later this year. When, where and in what weight class is still to be known.
