Dana White Says Meeting with Floyd Mayweather's Team Is to Promote Boxing

All smiles! They burst into laughter and shake hands after the hilarious impromptu moment

But it seems that McGregor, who is tipped to fight interim champion Tony Ferguson next, is in no rush to indulge the Dagestan wrestler and is in no hurry to return to the UFC either unless his demands are met.

"Their [the UFC's] deal with Fox is coming to an end". If Conor McGregor doesn't fight, the UFC is going to go on.

Mayweather is 50-0 in his boxing career, but was briefly reported to be entertaining the thought of fighting in the UFC cage, before dismissing that just before Christmas. He's going into the sixth round with Floyd Mayweather.

That was his most recent fight in the Octagon, having announced post-fight that he would take time off from the UFC in anticipation for the birth of his first child with partner Dee Devlin during the early months of a year ago.

"I've been very honest about it", White said.

After that, Mayweather made another public statement saying that he was not serious about this.

White went on to say that on his scorecard he had McGregor winning four rounds, which was far more than any boxing pundit had even considered as being a possiblity. As a matter of fact, there are a few online casinos that are allowing their users to place bets on one single question - Will Mayweather join the UFC? If I chose to fight in the Octagon, I'm choosing to fight in the Octagon because that's what I want to do. You can visit https://www.casino-online-canada.ca/ to check the best casinos and find one that has an offer like this. Floyd's gonna come back and he's gonna fight McGregor in the Octagon.' So they can leverage and get another big deal.

In addition to White's efforts to attract the boxer to the UFC, he also wants to enter the boxing market in 2018.

"I don't have anything against Dana White". We all know how successful White was in the world of mixed martial arts, but we will have to see how he will fit in the world of boxing.

Did Dana think it was possible and get shut down in his meeting? In any case, 2018 will be another exciting year for combat sports fans.
