UFC president Dana White, who has been in talks with Conor McGregor and held discussions with Floyd Mayweather’s team, believes the Mayweather-McGregor fight will take place.

“I see this fight happening. Conor wants it and Floyd wants it and I’ve said many times, Conor has done a lot, he’s stepped up in big fights for this company, for me and for Lorenzo [Fertitta]. I can’t deny him this fight. What I would like to clarify is all the bulls*** about the 80-20 split,” he said. “Believe me. We’ve had preliminary talks with Conor and I’m in a good place for Conor. We’re going to meet in New York when he has his baby.”

He added, “I’ve been talking to them [Mayweather’s team] for a while now.”
