Dana White: Half the deal done
UFC President Dana White was on TNT Wednesday night during the NBA Eastern Conference Finals between the Boston Celtics and Cleveland Cavaliers when he was asked for an update on the Conor McGregor vs. Floyd Mayweather situation.
“McGregor’s side is done, I’m starting to work on the Mayweather side now,” White said. “I’m not saying the fight will happen, but I got one side done, now it’s time to work on the other. If we can come to a deal with [Al] Haymon and Mayweather, the fight’s going to happen.”

“It’s going to be straight up boxing,” White said.
McGregor chimes in
McGregor then said on his website, TheMacLife.com, that he signed his part of the deal.
“It is an honor to sign this record breaking deal alongside my partners Zuffa LLC, The Ultimate Fighting Championship and Paradigm Sports Management,” McGregor stated.
“The first, and most important part of this historic contract has now officially been signed off on. Congratulations to all parties involved. We now await Al Haymon and his boxer’s signature in the coming days.”Follow MyMMANews.com on Social Media
