Dana White has expressed his reservations about booking a Conor McGregor vs. Jorge Masvidal fight any time soon. According to the UFC head, he has pleaded with Conor to postpone the Masvidal fight, stating, “I think it’s a bad idea, but Conor gets p****d off when I say it is a bad idea. He’s like, ‘You think I can’t beat Masvidal?’, and that whole thing.”
Israel “Stylebender” Adesanya and Robert “The Reaper” Whittaker are set to headline the much-awaited UFC 243 event which will take place on October 5 at Marvel Stadium in Melbourne, Australia. Stylebender is from New Zealand while Whittaker currently lives in Australia. This throws the classic Aussie-Kiwi rivalry into the mix, making it one of the most unique fights that the UFC has put together this year.
