Is Dana White softening stance on Conor McGregor facing Floyd Mayweather?
TMZ caught up with Dana and he seems to be changing his stance on Conor/Floyd
Dana White has been pretty staunch is his stance that Conor and Floyd are NOWHERE near a fight. That and the likelihood just isn’t that good. Then it was released that on his appearance on Conan O’brien, he says he believes it will actually happen. Now he’s got this to say to TMZ.
Dana was asked when we’d see Conor back in the Octagon. Dana replied, “I don’t know you know, he obviously has a lot of opportunities right now. Tony Ferguson is out there, the Floyd Mayweather thing is out there. We’ll see how this thing plays out.” He was then asked if Conor and Floyd are still a possibility? Dana replied, “Yeah, I mean it doesn’t make a lot of sense for my business, but I would never keep Conor from making that kind of money.” Dana also said the June 10th hold on the T-Mobile Arena has nothing to do with Floyd and Conor.
The topic switched to the Diaz brothers and Dana said, “We keep offering Nate fights and he keeps turning them down. Nick too.” They talked a little about whether Nate is holding out for Conor, but with Conor’s dance card seemingly filled, it could be a lengthy wait. Check out the video.
