It appears that UFC president Dana White is choosing to await the due process of for lightweight champion Conor McGregor's legal situation, not offering a timetable for when the Irish superstar would fight again.

 

The 29-year-old is expected to return to court in New York City in June, for his assault on a bus carrying competitors ahead of UFC 223. Two fighters would end up with facial injuries.

Hes gotta be punished by the law first. Lets see what happens in New York.

As for another little nugget, White was asked if a match between current lightweight champion Khabib Nurmagomedov and McGregor could occur in Moscow. White, however, would prefer that particular fight happen in Nevada.

 

"If you do a fight that big, youve got to do it in Vegas," White said. "Khabib will fight in Russia at some point, but it wont be that fight."
