Dana White Floyd's Not Fighting in UFC ... Meeting About Boxing!

Dana White Floyd's Not Fighting in UFC ... Meeting About Boxing!

But White maintains that the UFC's interim lightweight champion will be next up for McGregor if and when he returns. That's why I put [a mandatory title defense] into his contract.

Aside from the controversy surrounding Mayweather in the UFC, Dana White is also interested in getting into the boxing game in 2018 and promoting boxing events.

"He became the 155-pound champion, and his next fight was against Floyd Mayweather".

When Conor McGregor conquered Eddie Alvarez back in November 2016 nobody would have predicted he'd be out of action over two years later. He immediately moved up in weight, but did not relinquish that title for 11 months. "So, how has he never defended the title?" Dos Anjos pulled out due to injury, setting in motion a pair of fights for McGregor at welterweight against Nate Diaz.

He insists there's only one fight for McGregor next, a defence of his lightweight belt. "And I still don't", White said. St-Pierre has fought primarily at 170 pounds.

While most didn't take Mayweather seriously and simply believed it was a form of mind games from the undefeated boxing king, things really heated up when Mayweather broadcasted a live Periscope video in which he claimed he could go to the UFC and make a billion dollars for a few fights. He fought [Chad] Mendes, [Dustin] Poirier.

Prior to winning the UFC's featherweight championship, McGregor worked his way up the ladder like any other contender.

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

"I haven't talked to Conor about fighting. And after the fight, every fighter in the UFC gave him props for representing the sport". The decision seems hypocritical considering McGregor has never gone out of his way once to defend either title, instead seeking larger paydays and bigger opportunities.

So, ya. It's not surprising to see that White might be miffed at GSP, but to shoot down a bout with McGregor?
