Before facing off against Khabib Nurmagomedov, there was plenty of talk surrounding Conor McGregor's claim to the throne of being the greatest fighter in history.

Although many will believe he's still in the conversation, the one-sided mauling he suffered followed up by the neck-crank to finish the contest certainly made his stock slip slightly.


Rather than The Eagle, names like Al Iaquinta and Donald Cerrone are being thrown around instead.

Obviously, UFC president Dana White will look out for the Notorious now and will put him in a fight which can keep him in title contention yet make both parties plenty of money.

Although the battle McGregor is currently fighting now is NSAC situation, White told Barstool Sports in an interview that there's only one thing stopping the Irishman from being the perfect UFC star.

Many fans will point fingers at the former double champion's submission defence, but White explained that if McGregor turned up on time to press conferences on time, he'd be perfect as he explained what he would change about his biggest star.


According to MMA Mania, he said: "Is Conor hard to deal with here and there? Yeah, but he’s worth it,” White told Barstool Sports.

“If people ask me what’s the biggest problem you have with Conor? It’s not showing up on time. Other than that, Conor’s incredible. Conor’s a fun guy to be around, he’s hilarious, he’s a great fighter, he’s fun to watch.

"If the guy showed up on time, he’d literally be perfect. He’d be perfect.”

Many fans won't agree with it, but there's no denying just how talented he is inside of the Octagon.

From a business perspective, there's no denying just how valuable McGregor is to the UFC considering he's made the organisation so much money over the years and will continue to do so moving forward.
