Dana White on Conor McGregor: "He’s my Ali. He’s my Tyson" MMA

This is not surprising anymore that the UFC president Dana White is so much in support of Conor McGregor. Despite the brawl against Khabib Nurmagomedov ahead of the UFC 223, Conor is scheduled to fight against the Russian at UFC 229 in Las Vegas.

Dana has always spoken fair about the Irishman as he is the business master plan of UFC. He was very active during the promotion of Conor's boxing match against Floyd Mayweather. He also claimed that The Notorious is the most underrated fighter in UFC.

The UFC president has expressed his love for the Irishman once again comparing him to two of the biggest boxers in history Mike Tyson and Muhammad Ali.

 “He’s my Ali. He’s my Tyson. He burst onto the scene and I knew the minute I sat down and had dinner with him that this kid was going to be a star. I didn’t know if he’d be able to fight and I didn’t know if he’d be able to win a title, but I knew he was going to be a star.”

Dana said.

Well, this is not the first time, Conor has been compared to the likes of Ali. Back in 2015, then-CEO Lorenzo Fertitta also compared him with Ali and said that Conor was like “The Irish Muhammad Ali in a way”.

The Notorious might not level the greatness of Ali and Tyson but he is surely way ahead when it comes to business. Conor McGregor is the business of UFC.
