On Wednesday night (March 15) he seemed to have changed his thoughts on the rumored mega fight when he appeared as a guest on the Conan O’Brien show.
White told Conan that there’s just too much on the line to pass up the opportunity. Afterall, it’s an event that both boxing and MMA fans have been begging for
“I do think it’s going to happen. I think it’s going to be a tough deal, because, obviously, there are a lot of egos involved in this deal and a lot of people, so that always makes it tougher,” says White. “On the flip side, there’s so much money involved, I just don’t see how it doesn’t happen.”
Over the weekend at one of his stops in the United Kingdom (March 11), Floyd Mayweather announced he would be coming out of retirement to fight Conor McGregor, “I don’t want to hear no more excuses about the money, about the UFC,” Mayweather said, “Sign the paper with the UFC so you can fight me in June. Simple and plain. Let’s fight in June.”
