Dana White on Floyd Mayweather vs. Conor McGregor: 'It's interesting, I'd never say never'

New, 19 comments

UFC president Dana White himself is still open to the possibility of the Floyd Mayweather-Conor McGregor super fight.

One of the biggest and still ongoing conversations in combat sports this year is a possible super fight between Floyd Mayweather and Conor McGregor. However, it is an idea that Mayweather himself had recently rejected.

The other side of the spectrum says otherwise, apparently. In his recent interview with Skip Bayless on "Undisputed on FS1", UFC president Dana White has continued to leave the door open on the said fight, despite admitting that is a match-up that is impossible to make.

"You can’t say it’s not interesting," White said. "You can actually sit there and as you start picking it apart, thinking about it, it’s interesting. I’d never say never."

White had reiterated in the past the should the fight go down, it would be under MMA rules with kicks, punches and elbows. While he does believe that McGregor’s size advantage and punching power can do him good, White does not agree with having the deal well-suited for Mayweather.

"You can’t favor Floyd too much. You gotta balance it."
