Dana White changes tune, won't stop Floyd Mayweather vs. Conor McGregor superfight

He famously shut down his co-host's attempt to remove "the Notorious" from the FOTY debate and he had very positive things to say about the proposed meagafight against Floyd Mayweather on his Believe You Me podcast. Popular white fighters have been pitted against sublimely talented black fighters for well over a century and the whole McGregor as boxer chic seems, at least to some degree, to be just another bend on that particular highway.

Nate has reportedly been offered fights against Eddie Alvarez and Tony Ferguson of late with both bouts being hugely interesting. Mayweather wants it, and apparently McGregor's boss in the UFC, Dana White, isn't going to block the match from happening.

Floyd Mayweather has all-but confirmed his showdown with Conor McGregor is set for Las Vegas on June 10.

'Mayweather was not going to do anything else (except box), that's 100 per cent, because obviously if it was anything else he would get beat.

"It's a chance for Conor McGregor to become the greatest fighter of all time".

When asked if he plans on knocking out Jacobs, Golovkin said, "I think, I hope".

White said he thinks so - if for no other reason than there's so much money to be made.

Conlan will be joined and walked out to the ring by the biggest star in mixed martial arts and fellow Irishman Conor McGregor. "He's 28, in the prime of his career". Floyd is 40. Floyd has always had problems with southpaws; Conor is a southpaw and Conor hits hard. "When that fight's done, Conor is gonna go more than 30 seconds". But hey, if that makes you even a little more inclined to drop $70, expecting a competitive match, then so be it.

"It doesn't make a lot of sense for my business, but I would never keep Conor from making that kind of money", White said in a video interview posted on entertainment news website TMZ. It's probably why he applied for a boxing license shortly after McGregor did when the talks between him and Floyd Mayweather were just starting to gain steam.
