Dana White Dreams Of Conor McGregor Vs Mayweather II And Conor Vs Khabib II
Dana White has two dream fights he'd like to make and they both involve UFC superstar Conor McGregor.
The UFC president wants to see 'The Notorious' fight Floyd Mayweather in a rematch but this time he wants the undefeated boxer to step outside his comfort zone and into the world of MMA.
Secondly, White wants to see the Irishman get another chance at redemption against an undefeated fighter, this time in the shape of Khabib Nurmagomedov.
Talking to LasVegasNOW in 2019, White confirmed that those were the two fights he wanted to see.
"Dana White's two dream fights (per his interview with @8newsnow): Mayweather vs. McGregor in MMA and Khabib vs. McGregor 2."
At the time McGregor was still banned from the sport after the altercations that happened between him, and his team, and Khabib, and his team, following their fight last October.
Since then Nurmagomedov has returned to action and defended his UFC lightweight title, whilst unifying his belt with the interim title, after beating Dustin Poirier at UFC 242.
Mayweather came out of retirement in August 2017 to face McGregor in the Irishman's first ever professional boxing fight.
The American's win, a 10th round stoppage, brought up his 50th victory in an unblemished career and he once again decided to hang up the gloves.
He has since announced his comeback after striking a deal with White. He's set to return to the sport in 2020.
McGregor, on the other hand, will make his eagerly-awaited UFC comeback on January 18 when he faces Donald Cerrone at UFC 246.
