While Dana White is preparing for a venture with Floyd Mayweather and the launch of his maligned Zuffa Boxing brand, he’s not thinking of the sport heading into UFC 246, especially if it involves Conor McGregor.
“I would love that Floyd rematch,” McGregor said at Wednesday’s UFC 246 of a boxing rematch with Mayweather, who defeated the Irish superstar in 2017. “For what was in front of me, I thought I (did) very well (against Mayweather). I thought some slight adjustments, I would have done even better. So I feel now I could take that victory. The Manny Pacquiao talks have been ongoing. An aspiration for me now also is to win a boxing world title. I think that would be a phenomenal feather in the cap and something I look to achieve in the future – and something I will achieve.
“It would be an honor to come back into boxing, and who knows – maybe I will kickstart stuff with boxing if we can get there.”
“I’m not thinking about that right now,” White said to MMA Junkie of a McGregor return to boxing.
“Conor has this fight on Saturday, which puts him in line for another title shot (with a win). I’m not even thinking about the boxing stuff as far as Conor goes.”
