UFC President Dana White is expecting to meet with McGregor soon and he sees the fighter returning to action this summer.
The UFC President also sees Donald Cerrone as a potential opponent for McGregor when he does return to action.
“This Cerrone fight makes sense, there’s a couple different options out there for him,” White said. “He was talking about the Cerrone fight at one point. I don’t really know but that fight makes sense.”
Cerrone was last seen in action in the main event of UFC Fight Night Ottawa, defeating Al Iaquinta by way of unanimous decision. Cerrone did call out McGregor after the fight, while also laying claim to a shot at the UFC Lightweight Championship that is held by the aforementioned Nurmagomedov.
