In an interview with TMZ Sports, Dana White was asked if it’s safe to say that Conor McGregor will fight in 2019, to which he replied, “Yes, I do.”

As for who Conor will face, White said this should all sort itself out following tonight’s UFC 238 fight between Tony Ferguson and Donald Cerrone and the September UFC 242 title unification fight between Khabib Nurmagomedov and interim titleholder Dustin Poirier.

“Conor’s a competitor, he loves to fight,” White said. “This is his passion in life. These fights are all playing out now. So, after this weekend, we might have some answers on whose next for Conor. You know what he wants, he wants Khabib. That’s the fight he wants. But Poirier, Poierer’s in line for that fight, Poirier went in, he fought, he won, he beat Holloway. He’s next.”
