Downplayed – Dana White issues “dementia” response to Conor McGregor vs Floyd Mayweather rematch
A potential rematch between Conor McGregor and Floyd Mayweather has been labelled as “bull****” by UFC president Dana White.
Former two-weight UFC champion McGregor and boxing legend Mayweather shared the ring five years ago in a fight which became the second highest-selling combat sports pay-per-view of all time. McGregor was stopped in the 10th round by Mayweather and later returned to the UFC, but has lost three of his four fights since the illustrious ‘money fight’.
Reports have stated the pair are close to agreeing to a second fight, but are “arguing” over the potential fight rules. White, who has heavily involved in promoting the first fight, has downplayed any chance of a rematch by stating: “All bull****”. Those guys are just talking on social media like they do.”
The UFC boss even went one step further and stated that he would need to be going through “dementia” in order to set up a rematch between McGregor and Mayweather. If the rematch is to happen, it will not be an exhibition as McGregor is demanding the fight goes on both his and Mayweather’s professional records.
