Floyd Mayweather (50-0, 27 KOs) and Conor McGregor (22-6, 19 KOs) produced one of the greatest — if not the greatest — events in the history of UFC. As they are in talks for a rematch, the entire boxing community is talking about the meeting.
On the other hand, UFC president Dan White doesn’t want to take any credit for this anticipated fixture. Last week, in a deleted Instagram post, the Irishman accepted the challenge with a photograph of him punching the boxing legend.
“Not me. I’m not talking about that. It’ll be in the cage. Conor is looking to come back at the end of this year, early next year,” White said on the Jim Rome show.
This development came a few weeks after Fight Hype created rumors that the duo is set to be involved in a rematch.
But White seems to have not taken the idea seriously. Even if it becomes official, the UFC president doesn’t seem to fancy the idea.
White believes that McGregor will be back in the octagon and not the ring. He hasn’t competed since losing to Dustin Poirer in a TKO loss, where he also suffered a leg injury.
