Dana White Reports He's Meeting With Floyd Mayweather's Team…

A blockbuster payday from his August boxing match with Floyd Mayweather has put McGregor in the driver's seat with his career.

White said just over a week ago that the UFC is very interested in doing something with Floyd, adding that everything is a realistic possibility.

"Exactly what I said is this: If I could make over a billion dollars before, I could do it again", Mayweather told FightHype.com. "I don't see that being a problem", White said. "Listen, you guys know I was here, I did not believe that McGregor-Mayweather would happen and it did".

"I have a meeting with [Floyd's team] today".

White recently appeared on "Undisputed" on FS1 and told Skip and Shannon not to rule out a Mayweather fight in 2018.




While UFC president Dana White admitted Thursday that it's time for the lightweight division to move forward, he came to the defense of McGregor when asked whether "The Notorious" will be stripped of his 155-pound crown.

With Conor McGregor's year-end return off the table, UFC President Dana White is shifting his attention to another high season for pay-per-view business. This, of course, comes after he discussed meeting with Floyd Mayweather's team. The Irish champ, who reportedly banked more than $100 million for "The Money Fight", has said he wants an ownership stake in the UFC, which White won't entertain.

This month, however, St-Pierre's longtime coach, Firas Zahabi, told Express Sport a fight between the two worldwide stars would be "brilliant" and "probably the biggest fight in UFC and MMA history".

" ... He ain't fighting Conor McGregor". We both knew what was going on. But if he does come back to the promotion, he wants a stake in it.
