Dana White had headed to Liverpool to catch Darren Till V Wonderboy and on his way to the country made it public that he was planning on meeting with Conor McGregor while in England. The meeting between Dana White and Conor was unfortunately canceled, and is expected to be rescheduled for Las Vegas at a later date.

Following the UFC Liverpool event, Dana White was asked questions about the possibility of a return for Conor McGregor and a possible matchup with Khabib Nurmagomedov, to which he replied that the company was in a “wait and see” in regards to June and Conor McGregor’s court issues stemming from an assault which took place on the back loading dock of the Barclay’s Arena leaving several people injured, and ultimately causing UFC 223 to lose several bouts from the fight card.

Champion Boxer Layla McCarter of the Team Money Train, Mayweather promotions has now revealed publicly, that at least on the Mayweather side, their is some interest in a rematch with Conor McGregor inside the boxing ring.  The bout between Mayweather and McGregor went on to become one of the highest earning combat sporting events of all time with Mayweather making a guaranteed 100 million and McGregor banking a Guarantee of 30 million before even stepping into the ring with final payouts reportedly close to 250 million for Mayweather and 100 million for McGregor after all sides split merchandising, PPV, tickets, etc.

McGregor while has gone on record as to saying he has figured out Mayweather’s style and in boxing rematch could beat him, has not spoken to Dana White since the incident in Brooklyn leading to his arrest in New York, however any fight against Khabib Nurmagomedov is almost all but guaranteed to pay him less than a rematch against Floyd Mayweather.  Will we see Conor return to the boxing ring in 2018 or will news of his UFC return be made official?
