Dana White slams Conor McGregor v Manny Pacquiao by insisting ‘I don’t care about that s**t'
UFC boss Dana White has dismissed a potential crossover fight between Conor McGregor and Manny Pacquiao by insisting he ‘don’t care about any of that s****'.
McGregor fought Floyd Mayweather in a huge boxing-MMA clash back in 2017, with the American coming out on top via a tenth round stoppage.
And he recently raised eyebrows by tweeting ‘Tinatanggap ko’, which translates to ‘accepted’ in Filipino, Pacquiao’s native tongue.
But while White was involved in the promotion of Mayweather-McGregor three years ago, he has dismissed any interest in McGregor-Pacquiao.
McGregor announced his retirement from MMA back in June despite coming off the back of a sensational 40-second knockout of Donald ‘Cowboy’ Cerrone at the beginning of the year.
The Irishman did recently appear to accept a callout from rising UFC star Khamzat Chimaev, who is currently 8-0 as a professional.
But White again showed little desire to entertain a McGregor fight right now outside of a potential rematch with Khabib Nurmagomedov down the line, the man who submitted him back in 2018.
White added: "No, listen, Conor’s retired and Conor’s move right now is sit back, see how this year plays out, and see what’s next for him.
"You know he wants the Khabib fight; that happens October 24th. So, we’ll see."
Khabib will defend his UFC Lightweight Title against Justin Gaethje in October.
