Conor McGregor Sends Great Reply After Dana White Announces UFC's Biggest Year

Conor McGregor Sends Great Reply After Dana White Announces UFC's Biggest Year

Conor McGregor has issued a great response to Dana White's announcement of 2019 being UFC's biggest year.

White made the announcement on Twitter that the lat calendar year has been a huge one for UFC.

McGregor then replied stating, "What a company! The undisputed greatest."

It's quite a humble tweet by the standards of 'Notorious' and perhaps it shows a shift in mentality ahead of his January return.

The Irishman didn't fight once in 2019 and perhaps it stings to know he wasn't part of UFC's biggest ever year.

However, there is no doubt that 2020 is set to be even bigger in UFC and part of that will be down to McGregor's return.

The 31-year-old hasn't fought since his defeat to Khabbi Nurmagomedov at UFC 229 in October 2018.

But his return to the octagon will come on January 18 when he takes on Donald 'Cowboy' Cerrone at UFC 246.

Cerrone has recently had to dispute claims that he's being paid to take a fall against his opponent.

"Hell no, I'm not bowing down," the American defiantly told MMA Fighting.

"There's a bunch of sh*t going around, people keep telling me 'I heard you're getting paid to take a dive.' There wouldn't be enough money in the world for someone to pay me to take a dive.

I could never look myself in the mirror if somebody paid me to take a dive. Sh*t, never happen,

"I'd rather fight for free than take money to f*cking lose. That's not me. I'm going to fight my ass off like I do every time."

McGregor's showdown with Cerrone is just the beginning of his plans to rise up the pecking order again.

The endgame involves a rematch with Khabib but there's a chance he also faces Jorge Masvidal along the way.

Do you think McGregor's return to UFC will be successful?
