The delay of UFC superstar Conor McGregor’s comeback is confusing fans and experts. Why won’t the UFC push his return to take place as soon as possible?

“First of all, he’s coming back from one of the nastiest injuries you can come back from,” Dana White explained in a recent interview with Kevin Iole. “How long was Anderson Silva out when he did it? How long was Chris Weidman out?” White answered. “The guys who break that bone…so that’s an issue right there, number one. Number two, is Conor McGregor doesn’t need the fucking money. So when you don’t need the money, Khabib doesn’t need the money, Khabib retired.”

Is Conor McGregor still injured?

The Conor McGregor delay is a bit odd as he has recently posted videos of him sparring, where he seems to be recovered from the horrific broken leg and loss to Dustin Poirier in July 2021.

White, however, claimed he is not sure what the Irishman’s status is.

“Only Conor knows that. These are questions for Conor McGregor, not me. I know he’s training, but I don’t know what level of training he’s doing, I don’t know what level of kicking he’s doing right now. I don’t know any of that stuff. I need to know the guy’s in a full camp, he’s ready to go. Conor McGregor has a movie coming out, he’s got businesses that he’s built. It’s a completely different dynamic when you’re dealing with a guy that has this kind of money.”
