Conor McGregor's Manager Reveals The One Condition To Make UFC Fight Happen Amid Coronavirus Crisis

Conor McGregor's Manager Reveals The One Condition To Make UFC Fight Happen Amid Coronavirus Crisis

Conor McGregor could return to the UFC as soon as July, but he wants to make sure it's safe to compete amid the coronavirus crisis.

McGregor's manager, Audie Attar, told ESPN that 'The Notorious' has been training and staying in shape ahead of a UFC fight amid the global pandemic.

The Paradigm Sports Management CEO also revealed that his high-profile client is interested to see how the UFC pulls off this weekend's mega card as well as future events on May 13 and 16 in Florida.

"Conor is very curious to see whether the health and safety of the athletes and staff are ensured," Attar said. "He wants to make sure everyone is taken care of properly."

Attar continued by saying McGregor doesn't like the idea of fighting in an event behind closed doors because he would rather fight in front of a large crowd.

But he said the 31-year-old former UFC double champion would consider returning in July after being assured that the fighters and staff involved in the upcoming shows are healthy and safe afterward.

"While Conor's desire would be to fight in front of another sold-out crowd," Attar added. "He does understand what him fighting in an empty arena could do for people at home and would consider if he is comfortable with the way the UFC is holding these events from a health and safety standpoint."
