McGregor Could Return in Summer

McGregor

According to White, if St-Pierre ever decides to fight again, he will get matched up against a champion, but it won't be his dream bout against McGregor.

Of course, White also said GSP would never come back, there would never be a women's division, and the UFC wasn't being sold.

Meanwhile, a logjam of title contenders now waits to advance while interim champion Tony Ferguson (24-3 MMA, 14-1 UFC) pushes for a title unifier.

'The question is does he want to come back and do it?

White said it's easy to "look at a piece of paper" and argue McGregor's been reluctant to defend his title, but doing so ignores the details of the timeline.

"We're talking to Floyd about doing a UFC deal", White said on December 20, per Brett Okamoto of ESPN.com.


Flyweight king Demetrious Johnson has offered to face Mayweather, while a second fight with Conor McGregor would be a big seller.

"I did not believe McGregor-Mayweather would happen and it did", White added.

White, however, has continually maintained that the UFC is in talks about bringing the 50-0 boxer into the fold. Do you think that a deal could be reached to put Mayweather inside the Octagon for a fight? And I still don't, listen, you guys know I was here.

"I actually have a meeting with those guys today".

St-Pierre definitely earned a hefty payday after signing a new four-fight contract and then cashing in after UFC 217 ended up being one of the biggest selling fight cards of the year on pay-per-view. "No matter how much money you make, I always feel like with certain people you can only go on so many vacations, there's only so much stuff you can buy and then you're ready to get back to the grind, hopefully".
