Dana White says Khabib Floyd Mayweather boxing match won't happen

Dana White says Khabib Floyd Mayweather boxing match won't happen

The first hearing on the case of the scuffle after the Nurmagomedov vs. McGregor fight was held on October 24.

White, however, was adamant that a crossover fight between Mayweather and Nurmagomedov must happen inside a UFC cage.

McGregor's problems had been mounting as he has yet to resolve matters with the Nevada State Athletic Commission for his role in the UFC 229 post-fight melee, which came just months after the Irishman stood before a New York City judge for his attack on a bus in Brooklyn. If this ever happens again, I want to see his face broken up.

Notably, Mayweather had beaten UFC star Conor McGregor in a crossover fight in Las Vegas past year after the latter agreed to a boxing match.

The pair are keen to organise a money-spinning showdown in 2019, with a boxing match in front of 100,000 fans in Moscow among the possibilities.

White is now focused on Nurmagomedov handling his business with the Nevada State Athletic Commission, whom he landed in hot water with after he leapt over the Octagon fence to get at Conor McGregor's corner after he submitted the Irishman at UFC 229 in early October. "Once we did, it's over now", said white. "I admire him and the ethics and values he spreads every day in Europe", added the 30-year-old fighter, nicknamed "The Eagle".

The Russian fighter said he had not done anything wrong.

The commission initially withheld his entire $2 million fight purse, but recently voted to release half of it back to the UFC lightweight champion. "It's the fight to make, we'll see how this whole thing plays out, it all depends on the suspension", White added. It's not Khabib's job. That's it. ... Khabib can retire now. We have a very big motivation. "Right now, it's about the paycheck".
