It’s official … Dana White tells TMZ Sports he’s definitely stripping Conor McGregor’s lightweight title, so Khabib and Tony Ferguson can fight for the “real” belt. So, what does that mean for a possible Floyd Mayweather vs. Conor McGregor rematch? “The only way a rematch makes sense in that fight is in the UFC,” White says. He also confirms the two sides are talking.
White says he doesn’t think Floyd needs the money — but if he’s serious about an MMA fight against one of the baddest combat sports athletes on the planet … “he absolutely should be worried about his skills.”
White insists there is NO deal done right now — but says, “Anything is possible.”
