Former UFC dual-division champion, Conor McGregor, is currently in the center of two sexual assault allegations.
So when he was booked to face Donald Cerrone at UFC 246 on Jan. 18 after over a year away from action, people started questioning Dana White and Co.
That’s why the UFC president took the time to fire back at those critics and explain why he’s allowing Conor to return.
“I didn’t even know (about the criticism),” White told Yahoo Sports.
“He hasn’t been charged with anything. You can’t accuse somebody and stop them from making a living when they haven’t even been charged of anything.”
“Conor McGregor has made a lot of bad decisions in the past several years. He paid for it,” he added.
“He walked into court and plead guilty to punching that guy in the face in Ireland. Conor paid for the slapping of the phone out of the thing. He attacked the bus and paid for that.”
Indeed, “Notorious” has yet to be officially charged with any crime, but the court of public opinion is always quick to sentence someone.
That said, it will be a very busy 2020 for “Notorious,” who not only still has to deal with these looming allegations, but plans to fight three times.
