Tuesday, 11 April 2017 : The president of the UFC, Dana White, says that the much-hyped proposed fight between Conor McGregor and Floyd Mayweather IS going to happen.
Speaking at UFC 210, White said:
“I see this fight happening. Conor wants it, and Floyd wants it. I’ve said many times Conor has done a lot. He’s stepped up for big fights for this company, and for me and for [former UFC CEO] Lorenzo [Fertitta]. I can’t deny him this fight. Conor is having a baby any day now, and after Conor has his baby, Conor and I are going to meet in New York.”
Both fighters have been happy to bad-mouth and blame the other for the lack of a certain date so far, with Mayweather regularly belittling McGregor’s financial ‘concerns’ and the Irishman keen to give himself time to train up to a higher standard for a sole-boxing bout.
June and September have been suggested as possible times for the fight, with the latter looking far more likely.
