Dana White has two dream fights he’d like to put on and true to form they both involve Conor McGregor and they’re both rematches.
The UFC president wants to see ‘the Notorious’ fight Floyd Mayweather for a second time but this time he wants the undefeated boxer to step outside his comfort zone and into the world of MMA.
Secondly White wants to see the Irishman get another chance at redemption against an undefeated fighter, this time in the shape of Khabib Nurmagomedov.
Talking to LasVegasNOW White confirmed that those were the two fights he wanted to see, back in April this year.
“Dana White’s two dream fights (per his interview with @8newsnow): Mayweather vs. McGregor in MMA and Khabib vs. McGregor 2.”
The McGregor/Khabib Saga- How it all started
At the time McGregor was still banned from the sport after the altercations that happened between him, and his team, and Khabib, and his team, following their fight last October.
Since then Nurmagomedov has returned to action and defended his UFC lightweight title, whilst unifying his belt with the interim title, after beating Dustin Poirier at UFC 242.
White has revealed that a rematch between the two fierce rivals could be next, if Tony Ferguson isn’t able to take the fight, although the champ wants a super fight with Georges St Pierre.
Mayweather came out of retirement in August 2017 to face McGregor in the Irishman’s first ever professional boxing fight.
The American’s win, a 10th round stoppage, brought up his 50th victory in an unblemished career and he once again decided to hang up the gloves.
Since retiring there’s been rumours of him fighting again, with a Manny Pacquiao rematch spoken about, but his only action since was an exhibition fight with kickboxer Tenshin Nasukawa on New Year’s Eve 2018.
McGregor’s suspension from UFC has finished since White made his statement but lord knows if the president still feels that the Irishman’s two rematches are amongst his dream fights.
The former dual weight UFC champ has a long way to go before he’s back trying to win the lightweight title back and Khabib really should be fighting Ferguson next.
