Conor McGregor’s Incredible Story Of Meeting Dana White For First Time Ever When He Was 16 Years Old

But ahead of his win over Cerrone in Las Vegas, McGregor recalled his experience of meeting UFC president White when he was only a teenager.

The 'Notorious' said that he "ran down to the railings" after the event and wasted no time to ask White how much money he had on him.

And the UFC chief snubbed McGregor with a response and pulled a "weird face" at the question from the Irish superstar.

McGregor told ESPN: "When I was 16 years old, I was at my first UFC event as a fan. After the event, Dana stays and takes pictures with the fans.

"So, I don't think he liked that too much, but it was fun. I was just a little kid dreaming up the bit time."

When he was asked if he had reminded White about the exchange, McGregor grinned and said he wasn't sure if he had.

But the former two-division champ praised White and said that his first meaningful meeting with him was at UFC Sweden.

"My first time meeting [him] when I signed to the UFC was at UFC Sweden," he said.

"He's a cool man. Himself and Lorenzo [Fertitta], these are two of the coolest men in the game.

"They have changed the face of the fight industry. I am honoured to be here and be part of their great promotion.

"I'm looking to climb the ranks and be the poster boy for this promotion."
