McGregor recently told Entertainment.ie of his future plans, including opening a casino in Las Vegas and of his great friendships with former UFC co-CEO Lorenzo Fertitta and Dana White:
“We’re business partners, and we’re friends,” said McGregor of White. “Lifelong friends. He is a legend of the fight game. What Dana has done and what Lorenzo has done.
“Lorenzo is like a mentor to me and he still is. I still converse with Lorenzo daily. We were discussing a casino the other day. I’m trying to get a casino in Las Vegas and bounce in on that one. So, we were discussing that and going back and forward so Lorenzo is a mentor to me and I take his opinion very seriously, very highly and I always reach out to him on any venture that I get involved in or am about to get involved in and get his opinion.
“And, Dana is like a brother to me. We’re like, just lifelong friends. So, I’m very, very blessed to have met them too and climbed up the ranks with them too and long may I continue.”
