In the end though, the UFC President says it doesn’t matter to him if the super fight takes place.
“Listen, if it doesn’t work for me personally - either way, it doesn’t matter to me. I know that these two guys want to fight. I’ve said many times I respect Conor and I’d like to do this fight for him, but it’s got to be the right deal. We have to get the right deal done or it’s not going to happen, because at the end of the day, this isn’t what I do, the UFC is what I do, and I should be focusing on that, and not a boxing match that - obviously, a lot of people want to see it, there’s a lot of interest in it, but it’s not really what I do,” White said on The Herd.
White recently came out to say that the Canelo Alvarez/GGG boxing match stole the McGregor/Mayweather super fight date of September 16.
The UFC President also states that it’s both sides that are making negotiations a problem.
“It’s not even Mayweather. It’s not even Mayweather. It’s definitely both sides. It’s not just Mayweather, it’s both sides of this thing are gonna be hard to get done. And absolutely, there’s gonna come a point where I’m done [clears his hands]. This isn’t what I do. This isn’t my business and I’m definitely gonna walk away,” says White.
MMA fan's will see White next at UFC 211, which takes place on Saturday, May 13 from Dallas, Texas.
