UFC President Dana White is just as fed up as waiting for Floyd Mayweather Jr. vs. Conor McGregor as everyone else. White didn't make it totally clear who he meant by "we", but it was assumed it was in reference to the highly anticipated superfight between Floyd Mayweather and Conor McGregor. "If we really do get it done in that time frame, then this thing could possibly happen", White said.
"I think he's going to have to be very careful within the first five minutes", he said. "Listen, life moves on, man". Again, I still have to go negotiate with them.
After almost two years of chatter, it appears we may be close to getting a definitive answer on whether or not McGregor and Mayweather are going to actually step into the ring. "There's no guarantee that we're going to come to a deal". What point will that be?
"But what the f*ck, I'm going to cover for Conor McGregor and do his work while he's out making f*cking millions of dollars fighting boxers and sh*t?"
N. Korea detains another American over alleged hostile acts
PUST is North Korea's only privately funded university and has a large number of foreign teachers, including Americans. The wife of a US citizen who was detained in North Korea over the weekend is appealing for his immediate release.
"He makes a bunch of things up about why he's not fighting me, or why he doesn't want to fight me", Alvarez says.
"Obviously, both guys want to fight each other, but you know, what's the deal?" Can the deal be done? Alvarez was just 23 at the time, and Mayweather, with a 49-0 record on the line, may not want to take on a stronger, more experienced version of the Mexican fighter.
While White was quick to shift the blame away from Mayweather's camp ("It's both sides"), he did admit to being in unfamiliar territory in the negotiation process. "That being said, I'm a warrior and I'm going to go out there and damage this guy". After that I've tried to go to every local MMA event around the Gulf Coast and surrounding areas and decided to make it a point to have a career in some aspect in the fighting sport other than fighting in general (didn't want to ruin my face).
According to White, his plan was to sit down with McGregor following the birth of his child, which took place last weekend, and now it appears he plans on speaking to the Irish fighter on Sunday to hammer out a deal.
