Dana White Won’t Stop McGregor vs. Mayweather, Expects It To Happen

Each day it seems as if the tides change regarding a potential boxing super fight between former pound-for-pound king Floyd Mayweather and reigning UFC lightweight champion Conor McGregor.

Last week, Mayweather stirred the pot by saying he was ‘officially out of retirement’ for a bout with McGregor. This statement received more attention when news broke indicating that Las Vegas’ T-Mobile Arena was reserving June 10, 2017 for the fight.

Despite these reports, UFC President Dana White has consistently said that the fight is far from being signed and official. However, White recently told TMZ (Via FOX Sports) that he ‘would never keep’ McGregor from making the amount of money that he would surely bring in with a bout against Mayweather:

“It doesn’t make a lot of sense for my business, but I would never keep Conor from making that kind of money,” White said in regards to the fight between McGregor and Mayweather.

“He obviously has a lot of opportunities right now. Tony Ferguson is out there, the Floyd Mayweather thing is out there, we’ll see how this thing plays out.”

MMAFighting.com’s Luke Thomas also tweeted regarding the scenario last night (March 15, 2017) saying that White ‘ultimately believes’ the fight will happen:

Are you getting sick of all the back-and-forth banter, or are you hoping a bout between the two mega stars comes to fruition?

    Ugh, the “story” that would never die…
    I don’t *care* about this fight, neither does 90% of the planet!

    Conor only wants this so he can continue dodging #1 contenders!

      I care! I care about booking my Vegas flight & suite early enough for this fire ass event.

        Yeah I know it’s a tent-pole show too but I don’t give a sht- I wanna see it. It’s gonna be 12 rounds of Floyd landing 4 total strikes to Conor’s one because Floyd will run the entire time…. but there is that slim chance that Mac lands one and put’s Floyd to sleep. I’ll be watching

        • RayFromDa Bay

          What do you think is more important to Floyd?? A perfect 50 wins or him betting 100mill on the underdog Connor then taking a dive???

          • Juan Diablo

            I think Floyd is as dumb as they come, but I think he has enough sense to not go to prison for fraud by making a bet like that

      • Shock Wave

        You and maybe 10 other ppl care… big deal…

        • RayFromDa Bay

          If you never partied in Vegas during a major event then I could see why you seem bitter. This shit will be the biggest money fights in history.

      It will be funny if hardly anybody shows up for it

      They’ll be handing out tickets on the strip with a free piece of fried chicken to make it look like any cared about it

      • RayFromDa Bay

        What would they be handing the Irish folks to eat since the Blacks folks will be getting the fried yardbird?? You sound broke & bitter!

        • aFriendlyAgenda

          How come we can’t have a piece of fried chicken too?

          Racist!

          • RayFromDa Bay

            Because you guess will be too busy eating cold bloody roast beef sandwiches with globs of mayonnaise dripping everywhere!
            One side of the street will be covered with chicken bones. The other side, puddles of bloody mayonnaise.

      • Shock Wave

        I bet more than 20 ppl show up, Ray being the only guy up front, drunkenly screaming “Bes figh Eva!”
        Before being removed from the building, fight cancelled at the last minute cuz Mayweather stubbed his toe.
