Dana White Shares True Feelings On Conor McGregor's Performance Against Khabib Nurmagomedov

Dana White believes Conor McGregor doesn't receive the "credit that he deserves" as a top-level fighter and hailed his performance against Khabib Nurmagomedov as "impressive."

The Irish superstar has been vocal about his desire to face lightweight champ before he announced his shock MMA retirement in June.

Khabib, 31, is set to make his long-awaited return to the octagon as he prepares to defend his title against interim champ Justin Gaethje at UFC 254 on 25th October.

Speaking ahead of next month's UFC 254, White said that Gaethje's "MMA wrestling is on point" and "hits like a truck."

But the 51-year-old UFC president touched on McGregor's performance against Khabib and he feels the Irishman's trash-talking skills can often overshadow his fighting ability.

Conor McGregor’s Latest Theory On His Loss To Khabib Nurmagomedov Has Caused A Stir

"He hits like a truck. He can knock you out with either hand. And then you got Khabib, who is undefeated.

"If you look at the fight between him and Khabib, impressive... Again, stylistically, if you look at a guy like Gaethje, he is the most dangerous type of fighter for Khabib."
