Despite a report to the contrary, UFC president Dana White says no deal is in place that would facilitate a fight between Conor McGregor and Floyd Mayweather.
“There is no deal,” he told TMZ Sports.
Early on Tuesday morning, The Irish Sun cited a source close to McGregor who said he and Mayweather “have both settled on their respective fees.” The source added, “The contract hasn’t officially been signed yet because of a third-party holdup, but all the details have all been agreed on.”
The third-party holdup is none other than White, who has seemingly poo-pooed the idea all along.
It’s unclear if there is any way White would agree to let a fight between McGregor and Mayweather occur. What we do know is this is something that has been in the works as a “potential” fight for quite some time now, but it continues to be dead in the water.
