“Let me tell you this so one time when Conor blew up and Conoor was massive, you know, he showed up one time at the venue with so much security. I was like, this is f*****g ridiculous. Nobody needs this much security. this kid is going to blow all his money. Then, I and Lorenzo met up with him one night.”
Dana White says he has no information about the incident
Dana White continues that he feels there could have been some sort of false accusation considering how crazy situations can get sometimes with Conor McGregor. The former dual Champion’s popularity has got him into so much trouble in the past, and White believes this could be one of those incidents. However, he clearly stated that he is not defending Conor McGregor.
“And holy s**t. It’s just you just don’t understand how big this kid is until you go out with him. He was literally getting mobbed. Like people were going crazy screaming jumping up from blackjack tables leaving their money. They’re running after Conor and it was some crazy s**t. I’ve never seen anything like that, you know and the guys have to have to realize that thing, you know, imagine what it’s like when he is in Europe. There are like old people freaking out when he would walk by it wasn’t just like young people, old people were freaking out too. And I don’t know that that kind of life.”

“I think you it happens when you’re in that type of lifestyle and you know, you try to go out and you try to act normal and try to be normal and it’s hard to do sometimes. You know, I’m not defending him in anyway shape, or form. I don’t know enough about the situation to talk about it at all. But I do know I’ve gone out with him publicly before and it is bats**t nuts. You get bad s**t. That’s right. I mean my life is not even close, I would walk around and not even close, not even in the same universe close. No not even close.”
Dana White stated that McGregor’s lifestyle could have a lot to do with these allegations, taking a firm neutral stand on the entire matter. McGregor has denied any allegations and the more details are yet to be revealed about the entire incident.
