If a Conor McGregor - WWE run is coming, it's news to UFC President Dana White.
White and WWE are both denying Sun Sports' report that the UFC Lightweight Champion was in talks to perform at next year's WrestleMania. Dana White appeared on Good Day New York this morning and was asked repeatedly about the rumors.
"It's not true. It's absolutely not true," White said. "Literally just text Vince McMahon five minutes ago.
He was urged by the hosts of the show to hand over his phone, which he actually did and the hosts confirmed his statements. According to White, here's how the exchange played out
White: *links to story* ??
McMahon: "News to me."
White: "I figured. You guys are always (great) about talking to me."
McMahon: "Anytime. It might be great someday, but not now."
McGregor has yet to compete in MMA or pro wrestling this year, but had a high-grossing boxing bout with Floyd Mayweather in August.
