Dana White's Miami meeting with Conor McGregor never took place 9 months ago

Dana White's Miami meeting with Conor McGregor never took place

Fans will have to wait to hear an update on Conor McGregor's next fight.

Social media posts about McGregor's recent training would suggest that 'The Notorious' is gearing up for a return to the Octagon after seemingly making a U-Turn on his sudden decision to retire last month.

While he was in talks to fight this summer before his bizarre retirement announcement, it now looks like his next bout will take place later in the year.

UFC President Dana White sounded confident that McGregor would be back in action before 2019 comes to an end but face-to-face discussions about the Irishman's next move have been delayed to a later date.

White was scheduled to sit down with McGregor in Florida this weekend, when the UFC hosted a fight card in Sunrise, but the meeting never took place and the pair will instead meet up in Los Angeles.

It's unknown when the meeting will take place but in all likelihood, it will happen before the UFC's California show in July.

"I was supposed to meet with him down here; we’re going to meet in LA instead," White said on Saturday night, via MMA Junkie.

McGregor has been focusing on his boxing quite a bit in recent weeks, having returned to his boyhood boxing club to spar on several occasions before his exhibition contest against Michael McGrane last weekend.

McGregor is reportedly determined to secure a rematch with Khabib Nurmagomedov but the undefeated Russian is expected to make his return to action in a unification clash with newly-crowned interim UFC lightweight champion, Dustin Poirier, in September.

One potential opponent for McGregor is perennial 155lbs contender Tony Ferguson, who no longer shares a management company with McGregor after splitting with Paradigm Sports Management last week and choosing to have the Ballengee Group represent him in the future.
