Dana White Meeting With Floyd Mayweather's Team About UFC Deal

Dana White Meeting With Floyd Mayweather's Team About UFC Deal

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. Mayweather is now 1-0 against UFC star Conor McGregor, as the two faced off in a boxing match earlier this year.

"Let's get through the holidays and hopefully he starts to get the itch to come back and hopefully we can get him back this summer", White told ESPN.

It's a similar situation to late 2015, when McGregor won the UFC's featherweight title by knocking out Jose Aldo.

When Conor McGregor conquered Eddie Alvarez back in November 2016 nobody would have predicted he'd be out of action over two years later.

Prior to that announcement, White stated he would be "super pissed" if St-Pierre refused to defend the title, and that he was contractually obligated to do so.

Patrick Mahomes to start Week 17 for Chiefs
Whether said future starts in 2017 or is extended beyond that depends a lot on how Smith and the Chiefs perform in the playoffs. That season, Mahomes tallied a completion percentage of 63.5 and a passer rating of 147.2.

A timeframe for McGregor's return to the UFC is now unknown, and White has acknowledged on several occasions that the lightweight division needs to move forward.

In vacating his middleweight belt, GSP violated a clause in his contract that mandated he defend his title, should he win. "Because if you look at how everything played out, Conor has fought everybody".

"If Conor McGregor fights next year, that'll be awesome". People loved it, so somewhere down the line there's a possibility for a trilogy, but right now he has to defend his title against Tony Ferguson.

"It wasn't Conor's fault [dos Anjos] got hurt. And I still don't", White said on Undisputed. "And after the fight, every fighter in the UFC gave him props for representing the sport".

While away, Tony Ferguson won the interim lightweight title by stopping Kevin Lee in October and has called out McGregor for a unification bout. "They're both waiting, if Georges wants to come back", he added.
