Dana White Reveals Targeted Return Date, Opponent For Conor McGregor

Greatest Sports Moments 2017: Top 6 Unforgettable Sport Events This Year

"Money is always a factor but we've never had a problem getting a deal done with Conor McGregor".

"Don't count anything out on him coming over to the UFC, that anything is possible", White said on the show, noting that he didn't think the Conor McGregor and Mayweather boxing match would happen, until of course, it did this past August.

There has been plenty of speculation that St-Pierre's eyes are on a lucrative fight against lightweight champion Conor McGregor.

It seemed more likely that McGregor would return during the first quarter of next year to unify the lightweight championship against current interim titleholder Tony Ferguson.

Perhaps it's a potential partnership in launching a new boxing promotion. So- so we'll see.




"There's two different sides to this coin".

Instead, White says he's looking to put together boxing superfights (in addition to his UFC duties) involving some of the best pugilists in the world. starting with heavyweight champ Anthony Joshua. There's the one that you just said [about making $100 million and still getting punched in the face] then there's the one where there's only so many trips you can go on and there's only so much stuff you can buy before you start to get bored and you want to get back in the game.

"Right now, I don't really have a feel on what Conor wants to do".

White called the situation a "mess" and said a fight on Saturday between Khabib Nurmagomedov (24-0 MMA, 8-0 UFC) and Edson Barboza (19-4 MMA, 13-4 UFC) at UFC 219 will begin to clear the blockage at the top of the lightweight division.

Now, these comments are in keeping with White's earlier statements, where he said he would be "super pissed" if GSP vacated the belt. "If I choose to get in the Octagon and fight".
