Dana White expressed his pleasure in having this version of McGregor back in the UFC. He has been the company’s biggest superstar and the numbers he puts out are unmatched.

The biggest difference? Details. He wants to know, every little detail of the arena, the walk you know, and, and he’s totally just starts to geek out on everything.

“When he’s not there, when he’s not really in that mode. He doesn’t give a sh*t. And he’s just not as sharp. He’s not as sharp about every little detail that goes on,said White.

“And he’s been saying, get ready because you’re gonna see some spectacular things on Saturday and everything and I believe every word of it.

“And what excites me is Dustin Poirier is saying, if you think that I’m the same guy that I was before, and you know, both of these guys are in the right place for this fight, and I think it’s gonna be great,” White concluded.

That is quite intriguing if McGregor is motivated like that. He has shown the world before what a fully focused version of him can do. McGregor transformed MMA forever. If this is indeed the second-coming of ‘The Notorious’, the expectation can only be sky high.
