Dana White maintains that Floyd Mayweather could possibly fight in UFC

"What I said was don't count anything out on him coming over to the UFC", White said.

According to White, if St-Pierre ever decides to fight again, he will get matched up against a champion, but it won't be his dream bout against McGregor. Mayweather is now 1-0 against UFC star Conor McGregor, as the two faced off in a boxing match earlier this year.

In October, St-Pierre told ESPN it would be "an unbelievable honor" to fight McGregor (21-3), but he would not call out a smaller fighter.

Just a month later, St-Pierre vacated the belt after being diagnosed with a condition called colitis - a chronic, inflammatory bowel disease - that he believes may have been caused by packing on so much weight to compete at 185 pounds.

Despite rampant speculation in recent weeks, we don't know what Conor McGregor is doing next.

- I actually have a meeting- I have a meeting with those guys, today.

Despite the situation, the UFC executive said his recent conversations with McGregor haven't been about fighting.

On a possible Georges St-Pierre vs. Conor McGregor fight if GSP returns: "He ain't fighting Conor McGregor".

Dana White's meeting with Floyd Mayweather's team is NOT about getting the boxer into the octagon - it's about getting Dana White into the boxing biz.so says Dana himself.

This month, however, St-Pierre's longtime coach, Firas Zahabi, told Express Sport a fight between the two global stars would be "brilliant" and "probably the biggest fight in UFC and MMA history".

'The question is does he want to come back and do it?

"What we have to do, is he needs to defend that [UFC lightweight] title", White said. "I think he jumped in, grabbed some cash and went back to Canada".

"Tony Ferguson is the fight right now and is the move if (McGregor) wants to come back".
