Dana White adds fuel to Floyd Mayweather rumors

  • George St. Pierre

In November of that year he claimed the 155-pound title and hasn't fought in the Octagon since.

"What we have to do, is he needs to defend that [UFC lightweight] title".

"He ain't fighting Conor McGregor", White said.

At this time, White said there is no update on his next move. "You know, no matter how much money you make, I always feel like with certain people you can only go on so many vacations, there's only so much stuff you can buy and then you're ready to get back to the grind, hopefully". He's his own man and makes his own decisions, so nothing would surprise me.

"I actually have a meeting with those guys today".

- I don't think so, no.

" ... He ain't fighting Conor McGregor".

There is no shortage of fighters eager to experience the kind of payday that accompanies fights with McGregor and even the likes of Manny Pacquiao are desperate to compete opposite the Dubliner. "He fought everybody on his way up 145 pounds".

If Mayweather would come over and fight in the UFC, it would easily be the biggest crossover from boxing to MMA in combat sports history.

When asked if he believes that is St-Pierre's intent after vacating the middleweight title, White shot down the potential matchup. Diaz shocked the world by submitting McGregor in the 2nd round but McGregor won the return fight five months later as a welterweight at UFC 202. "They're both waiting, if Georges wants to come back".

The Dagestani Sambo expert may have to sit out until Ferguson and McGregor finally meet, though an actual second interim bout between Khabib and Tony has been mooted elsewhere.

The UFC's middleweight division will move on in February, when newly crowned champion Whittaker meets Luke Rockhold at UFC 221.

Citing the windfall that the Dubliner received for his TKO loss to Floyd Mayweather, White is banking on McGregor getting bored of the fruits of his labour and itching to return to action.
