Dana White: UFC Will Move On With Or Without Conor McGregor

Floyd Mayweather reveals the biggest mistake of his career and it's not Conor McGregor

Conor McGregor's trolling of Floyd Mayweather is moving into another gear.

Namely, White believes that he can reach a deal with Floyd "Money" Mayweather and that the boxer will actually start competing in the famous UFC Octagon. I would use a Floyd Mayweather so I could leverage also and say "you know what?"

Like the rest of us, UFC lightweight champion Conor McGregor had his share of ups and downs in 2017. Of course, McGregor said that this would be a great idea even though he was not convinced that Floyd would win the UFC title.

- Well, I'm interested in getting into boxing in 2018.

Last August, McGregor made his professional boxing debut against Mayweather at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas. I want to get into boxing. So I'm not fighting, I don't have any boxing opponent I'm looking forward to. I'm not calling any names out in the UFC. "That's the problem with motherfuckers nowadays, we're too anxious about what someone else is doing with their money".

It is highly unlikely to materialise but that did not stop the Irishman from trying to goad "Money" Mayweather into a fight. And Mayweather doesn't completely commit to never joining the UFC here, saying only he doesn't "need to fight", he isn't planning to take up MMA at this time, and "If I chose to fight in the Octagon, I'm choosing to fight in the Octagon because that's what I want to do".

Mayweather's case that White's comments about him may be related to the TV contract has some logic behind it, but it also has some flaws. White and the UFC helped to promote the superfight that generated 4.3 million pay-per-view buys. "We're talking to Floyd about doing a UFC deal", White told ESPN.

But it seems that McGregor, who is tipped to fight interim champion Tony Ferguson next, is in no rush to indulge the Dagestan wrestler and is in no hurry to return to the UFC either unless his demands are met.
