Dana White Reportedly Meeting with Floyd Mayweather About MMA Fight

Dana White Reportedly Meeting with Floyd Mayweather About MMA Fight

Dana White hopes Conor McGregor will return to UFC by summer. The undefeated boxer retired in August after defeating McGregor and has previously shot down rumors he was interested, but White said he has a meeting with Mayweather's team about a potential fight.

Just a month later, St-Pierre vacated the belt after being diagnosed with a condition called colitis - a chronic, inflammatory bowel disease - that he believes may have been caused by packing on so much weight to compete at 185 pounds. However, White shot down any notion that the UFC should have stripped McGregor of the lightweight title by now.

So GSP and his camp have transitioned to campaigning for the biggest fight possible - Conor McGregor.

"I actually have a meeting with those guys today", White added, noting that he is meeting with Mayweather's crew.

"I don't know, man, White recently told ESPN's Brett Okamoto".

"We're talking to Floyd about doing a UFC deal", White said on December 20, per Brett Okamoto of ESPN.com. "I have a meeting with [Floyd's team] today".

The best fight purse McGregor has earned is around £3m and there have been questions about how the UFC could possibly afford to match that figure.

"No matter how much money you make, I always feel like with certain people, you can only go on so many vacations, (and) there's only so much stuff you can buy, and then you're ready to get back to the grind, hopefully".

"Tony Ferguson is the fight right now and is the move if [McGregor] wants to come back". "So we'll see", White said. "If he wants to come back, Tyron Woodley or Robert Whittaker is waiting for him".

During the build-up to the Mayweather vs. McGregor fight Mayweather teased several times that he'd fight in the UFC next, and the Irishman welcomed that opportunity with open arms.
