Dana White Floyd's Not Fighting in UFC ... Meeting About Boxing!
Dec 29, 2017, 01:48
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.
" ... He ain't fighting Conor McGregor. So, we'll see." - Dana White on Skip and Shannon: Undisputed.
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.
He insists there's only one fight for McGregor next, a defence of his lightweight belt.
"There is no status", White told ESPN. White wasn't happy with St-Pierre's decision to vacate the title and was quick to shut down speculation that the French-Canadian may face McGregor in what would certainly be the biggest fight that can be made in the UFC. However, White shot down any notion that the UFC should have stripped McGregor of the lightweight title by now.
In November 2016, McGregor knocked out new champion Eddie Alvarez for the lightweight belt and was forced to give up his featherweight title shortly after.
"We're talking to Floyd about doing a UFC deal".
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 tried not to do it, but he contractually had to let go of the 145-pound belt". He beat Max Holloway, the only guy to beat Max Holloway in four years. "Because if you look at how everything played out, Conor has fought everybody".
"It wasn't Conor's fault [dos Anjos] got hurt".
White told ESPN that he's "hopeful" McGregor will return no later than next summer.
