One of 2018's biggest MMA mysteries is if Conor McGregor will return to MMA and who would he fight. He hasn't stepped inside the Octagon since November 2016 when he won the 155-pound title.
"He needs to defend that title". Waiting in the wings is interim champion Tony Ferguson.
"Don't count anything out on him coming over to the UFC, that anything is possible", White said on the show, noting that he didn't think the Conor McGregor and Mayweather boxing match would happen, until of course, it did this past August.
White told ESPN that he is not interested in a St. Pierre vs. McGregor fight, and continued to shoot down rumors of negotiations between both fighters' camps.
If you thought, or were hoping...that all the talk about Floyd Mayweather fighting under the UFC banner was wrapped up, well, it looks like that's not the case. When he won the 155-pound belt, he dropped the 145-pound belt, which we made him do.
White called the situation a "mess" and said a fight on Saturday between Khabib Nurmagomedov (24-0 MMA, 8-0 UFC) and Edson Barboza (19-4 MMA, 13-4 UFC) at UFC 219 will begin to clear the blockage at the top of the lightweight division. "So, how has he never defended the title?" So, we'll see." - Dana White on Skip and Shannon: "Undisputed.
There is no shortage of fighters eager to experience the kind of payday that accompanies fights with McGregor and even the likes of Manny Pacquiao are desperate to compete opposite the Dubliner. "He tried not to do it, but he contractually had to let go of the 145-pound belt".
One thing Dana White did rule out, is a fight with Nate Diaz.
St-Pierre (26-2) still opted to vacate, but remains under UFC contract and is open to fighting again. Tony Ferguson is the fight right now and is the move if he wants to come back.
It all ends well, as Penelec confirmed that the statement, amounting to $284,460,000,000, was an error on their part. After discovering the bill, Horomanski had her son call Penelec, Horomanski's electric supplier, for an explanation.

So, it makes sense for starting quarterback Alex Smith and numerous other regulars to get a week off before the playoffs. But if Mahomes play well, it could make the Chiefs a little more comfortable in moving on from Smith this summer.
