Dana White on McGregors Return: “He’s Gotta Be Punished By The Law First”

Ever since Conor McGregor came into the UFC in 2013, he cannot seem to stay out of the headlines. Certainly living up to his nickname “The Notorious”, The Irish superstar most recently found himself in hot water over a debacle at a UFC event in New York City on April 5th, which saw McGregor throw a metal dolly through a bus window in an attempt to provoke current lightweight champion Khabib Nurmagomedov.

The fallout from the incident caused drastic changes to the card including Michael Chiesa and Ray Borg having to pullout from their fights. So the question on the minds of fans and fighters lately is this, what happens to his UFC career?
But according to Dana White, McGregor has bigger things to deal with for the moment. During an interview with TMZ, Dana White discussed the current state of affairs with McGregor:

He’s gotta be punished by the law first. Let’s see what happens in New York.

The 29 year old McGregor is due to be in court in June for the incident, and the legal proceedings could last even longer. White was also asked about if and when a fight between McGregor and Nurmagomedov will take place, and the possibility of it taking place in Russia:

If you do a fight that big, you’ve got to do it in Vegas. Khabib will fight in Russia at some point, but it won’t be that fight.
