Dana White Tells Conor McGregor What To Do In Response To UFC Super-Fight With Anderson Silva

Dana White Tells Conor McGregor What To Do In Response To UFC Super-Fight With Anderson Silva

Dana White has told Conor McGregor to "sit back and relax" amid reports of a UFC super-fight with Anderson Silva.

McGregor accepted Silva's stunning challenge and agreed to a 176lbs blockbuster clash on social media.

But the UFC president has dismissed the idea of 'The Notorious' fighting 'The Spider' while providing the Irishman with some words of advice.

"It's not a fight that I'm interested in right now," White said when asked about McGregor vs. Silva. "Listen, everybody's in quarantine, right? They can't go to the gym. They can't go to restaurants.

"So they sit on these stupid things all day. Conor and I have not talked about fighting."

He added: "If you're Conor, sitting at home, everybody is calling you out, in every weight division.

"Who's next? I'm waiting for [heavyweight] Daniel Cormier to call him out, you know? Conor, his personality, he's going to respond to that.

"I'm not interested in anybody right now for Conor. I think what works for Conor right now is for him to sit back and relax."

McGregor's eyeing a summer return after making a triumphant UFC comeback in January against Donald Cerrone.

Silva, meanwhile, hasn't fought since May 2019 when he suffered a stoppage defeat to Jared Cannonier.
