Dana White admits Conor McGregor is ‘probably’ still in UFC testing pool as he address talk of huge Jorge Masvidal fight
DANA WHITE says Conor McGregor is “probably” still in the United States Anti-Doping Agency testing pool as he addressed the star’s potential comeback.
Notorious last fought in January as he demolished Donald “Cowboy” Cerrone in the first round at UFC 246.
After failing to land a rematch with bitter rival Khabib Nurmagomedov or a clash with Justin Gaethje he then announced his retirement last month.
Despite that, speculation has been mounting that he is set to be offered another big-money super fight against Jorge Masvidal.
Gamebred was defeated by Kamaru Usman at UFC 251 last Saturday.
However, his stock and popularity has rocketed with the pay-per-view receiving 1.3million buys.
Now UFC president White has addressed talk amongst fans of the bumper clash between Masvidal and the Irishman – but it was not good news.
He told Yahoo Sports: “Conor McGregor’s retired.”

He responded: “Probably, but people have retired and stayed in the testing pool.
“It has happened before.
“And then they get tired of it and bail out of it.”
