Dana White on Floyd Mayweather to UFC: 'Don't count anything out'

Dana White on Floyd Mayweather to UFC: 'Don't count anything out'

So, the meeting could end up being about Mayweather Promotions teaming up with the company for boxing matches.

Speaking to ESPN, the UFC president said: "Let's get through the holidays, hopefully he starts to get the itch to come back and hopefully we can get him back this summer".

It's a similar situation to late 2015, when McGregor won the UFC's featherweight title by knocking out Jose Aldo. Because if you look at how everything played out, Conor has fought everybody. However, White shot down any notion that the UFC should have stripped McGregor of the lightweight title by now.

It was hoped that McGregor would return to the Octagon in the main event of UFC 219 to defend his title and see 2017 out in style but discussions on that were given the kibosh after his ill-advised antics at a Bellator event in Dublin.

Conor McGregor is still without an opponent after announcing that he wants to get back in the cage as soon as possible, and current Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) middleweight and former welterweight champion Georges St. Pierre is more than willing to volunteer.

White told ESPN that he is not interested in a St. Pierre vs. McGregor fight, and continued to shoot down rumors of negotiations between both fighters' camps. When he won the 155-pound belt, he dropped the 145-pound belt, which we made him do. "He fought everybody on his way up 145 pounds".

"It wasn't Conor's fault [dos Anjos] got hurt".

"I think he's the most marketable fighter in boxing right now", White says.

UFC was quick to strip inaugural women's featherweight champion Germane de Randamie of her title in June four months after winning it for refusing to immediately face Cris "Cyborg" Justino. "The question is does he want to come back and do it?"

While away, Tony Ferguson won the interim lightweight title by stopping Kevin Lee in October and has called out McGregor for a unification bout.
