  • Mayweather Meeting With Dana White

"Exactly what I said is this: If I could make over a billion dollars before, I could do it again", Mayweather said.

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

"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. "And I still don't", White said on Undisputed. "You guys know I didn't believe that McGregor-Mayweather would happen and it did, so anything is possible".

On Thursday, White only added fuel to those discussions when he revealed he is set to meet with members of Floyd's Money Team to discuss a possible fight.

White said it's easy to "look at a piece of paper" and argue McGregor's been reluctant to defend his title, but doing so ignores the details of the timeline.

Dana White has spoken negatively of the prospects of a McGregor return in the past, however he's now hinted at a possible time frame while he claims the opponent is a certainty.


"I actually have a meeting with those guys today", says White.

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

The comeback date is much further away than previously thought, with the UFC initially working to get McGregor back before the end of this year. This, of course, comes after he discussed meeting with Floyd Mayweather's team.

"Tony Ferguson is the fight right now and is the move if [McGregor] wants to come back". "If I choose to get in the Octagon and fight". We both knew what was going on. "It would probably be the biggest fight in UFC history and MMA history and that record wouldn't be broken for ten years".
