UFC President Dana White recently stated that he will not be getting in the way of a potential boxing superfight between UFC Lightweight Champion Conor McGregor and boxing legend Floyd Mayweather Jr.
White also doesn’t know who would win the fight if or when it actually does come together.
“The great thing about fights, is you never know who’s going to win. Believe me, there’s a lot of weekends where I put on fights, and people think they’re not going to win, and they do. That’s the crazy thing about the fight business. If people think it’s guaranteed that Floyd is going to win that fight, why would you pay for it? There’s no guarantees. Conor is 27, Floyd is 40. Conor’s the bigger, stronger guy. He has knockout power. It’s an interesting fight,” White said to X17 Online.
The UFC head honcho also spoke at the Republican National Convention last year in support of President Donald Trump. Despite the controversy surrounding Trump, the UFC President just wants people to give him a chance.
“I spoke at the RNC, so I’m a huge supporter,” he said. “Listen, everybody needs to give him a chance. I can tell you this, I got 17 years experience with this guy — always been good to me, always been a stand-up guy. Give him a chance and lets see what happens.”
Dana White will be seen next at UFC 210, which will be taking place on Saturday, April 8 with Daniel Cormier and Anthony Johnson headlining.
