Dana White to Floyd Mayweather: If you want to fight Conor McGregor, call me!

Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) president Dana White was quick to dismiss rumors that a potential fight between his current Featherweight champion, Conor McGregor, and retired pound-for-pound great Floyd Mayweather, was in the works.

It's something White likes to do.

But, if "Money" is really interested in going toe-to-toe against "Notorious," apparently all he has to do is pick up the phone and give White a call. At least that's what White stated during a recent appearance on "The Dan Patrick Show."

"Conor McGregor is under contract with the UFC. Listen, if Floyd wants to fight Conor, call me Floyd."

Floyd, call him, please.

Of course, a fight between the two combatants would have to go through UFC, according to White, which will have to find a way to co-promote with Mayweather Promotions, which also has exclusive partnership rights with Showtime.

It's something White doesn't like to do.

However, would a potential share of a $1 billion fight be enough for White and Co. to break protocol?
