UFC President Dana White took a little shot at WWE Chairman Vince McMahon when talking about his prediction for the upcoming UFC featherweight title unification bout between Jose Aldo and Conor McGregor at UFC 194.
While talking at the UFC 193 Fan Q&A in Sydney, Australia, White was asked to give his prediction on the Aldo-McGregor bout.
“We have to get both those guys there and get this fight on,” White said. “Aldo is so talented, I just said I think he’s the pound-for-pound best. He hasn’t lost in ten years. McGregor is such a beast; he hits so hard and he comes forward. Everybody here, as fight fans, you know that the Irish are going to be there; there’s going to be Brazilians there. It’s going to be f*cking crazy in that arena; just the energy and the buzz is going to be nuts.”
White continued, “My prediction is — I don’t know what’s going to happen. If I knew what was going to happen, I’d be Vince McMahon. I don’t know what’s going to happen.”
UFC 194: Aldo vs. McGregor takes place on Saturday, December 12, 2015 at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada, airing live on pay-per-view.
