Dana White: ‘Never say never’ about Conor McGregor vs Floyd Mayweather rematch

Boxing: Mayweather vs McGregor Mark J. Rebilas-USA TODAY Sports

And here you thought this rematch was dumb.

Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) President Dana White is not going to (completely) close the door on a potential rematch between currently mixed martial arts (MMA) phenom Conor McGregor and retired pugilist Floyd Mayweather.

"I never say never but I doubt it,” White said on the Pardon My Take podcast.

McGregor is confident he would capture victory the second-time around, despite his technical knockout loss to Mayweather at their pay-per-view (PPV) extravaganza last August in Las Vegas, Nevada which early on, was a fairly competitive bout.

“Notorious” is also open to a rematch under MMA rules.

The chances of that happening are remote, as McGregor has work to do in the lightweight division. In addition, Mayweather was adamant he was getting out of the fight game for good, perhaps to focus on this.

But as White alluded to, “never” is a very long time in sports.
