Being a sports celebrity is difficult. With all the different interviews/press conferences, it is difficult to keep track of every word one says, and White found himself in a similar situation.

In a recent interview with Oscar Willis at TheMacLife, Dana was asked what other trilogies he thinks are worth remembering inside the octagon. White replied that it was Jon Jones vs Daniel Cormier. Immediately the interviewer intervened and helped Dana recollect that Jones and Cormier are yet to get to their third match.

There was an awkward silence in the interview after Oscar Willis corrected the UFC president, while he was still remembering any of the trilogies that ever happened.

White laughingly said, “thanks for trying to save me” both men laughed and the interview went on.

Dana White thinks we will see the “old” Conor McGregor

In the same interview, White was asked about what should ‘The Notorious‘ do differently this time to make sure he comes out as the winner, to which White recalled the last time these two athletes met inside the cage and mentioned that McGregor is “shut down” taking this fight seriously.

“Conor looked damn good in the first round. I don’t know how well he prepared for that fight,” White added “I can tell you this – From what I can see, he’s taking this fight a lot more serious than he did the last fight, he’s basically shut down, he’s in his own little world doing his thing. He feels like the old Conor McGregor.”

McGregor has taken to social media multiple times prior to the fight week, giving a sneak peek at how he is training. He obviously loves to play mind games with his opponents but Dustin Poirier might be a difficult one.
