TEverything seems to indicate that the negotiations for a Mayweather vs. McGregor II they are already advanced and a rematch is likely to be seen, with the American facing the Irishman again in the ring.

According to the specialized portal Fight Hype, the representatives of Floyd Mayweather and Conor McGregor have already started talks to reach an agreement. In addition, the Irishman published a photo on his Instagram earlier this June of him boxing Mayweather with the title “I agree”.

I have less than zero interest in seeing that again

Dana White

However, if it were for Dana White, the fight between the boxer and the ‘gladiator’ of MMA would never happen again. The boss of the UFC spoke with TMZ Sports and made things very clear: “I have less than zero interest in seeing that again“.

What’s more, White claims to have no knowledge of the possibility of the two fighters meeting again in a ring. “I didn’t even know thatI haven’t seen anything,” the UFC president said.

Mayweather and McGregor starred one of the fights that generated the most money in history of boxing in August 2017. The fight had over $4 million in pay-per-view buys. But now they’re both in very different places in their races. Floyd is 45 years old and only fights exhibitions. Conor, for his part, is 33 years old and in addition to coming off a serious leg injury he has lost 3 of his last 4 UFC fights.

Dana is clear that she would rather see McGregor return to combat sports in the Octagon and confesses that a fight against Michael Chandler is something she would really like to see.
