Dana White reveals targeted comeback date and opponent for Conor McGregor

If Georges St-Pierre fights again, Dana White says it won't be against Conor McGregor

Dana White says that if Georges St-Pierre does return, it won't be for a fight against Conor McGregor.

McGregor has made no promises about his return to the UFC after earning a career-high pay day in August when he took on Floyd Mayweather in a boxing match.

Well, White appeared on FOX Sport's "Undisputed" show today, and during it, he was asked about Mayweather. "Listen, you guys know I was here, I did not believe that McGregor-Mayweather would happen and it did".

White stated that he does not believe Mayweather is truly retired from boxing or potentially the UFC, adding, "He will fight again".

If St-Pierre does decide to come back, his coaches have recently suggested that a fight against UFC lightweight champion Conor McGregor might make sense considering that would undoubtedly be one of the most lucrative events of all time.

A timeframe for McGregor's return to the UFC is now unknown, and White has acknowledged on several occasions that the lightweight division needs to move forward. "I don't think the guy wants to fight", White mused.

White said it's easy to "look at a piece of paper" and argue McGregor's been reluctant to defend his title, but doing so ignores the details of the timeline.

Citing the windfall that the Dubliner received for his TKO loss to Floyd Mayweather, White is banking on McGregor getting bored of the fruits of his labour and itching to return to action. Do you think that a deal could be reached to put Mayweather inside the Octagon for a fight?

If Mayweather would come over and fight in the UFC, it would easily be the biggest crossover from boxing to MMA in combat sports history. Let us know your thoughts on the matter in the comments section below!

"He ain't fighting Conor McGregor", White said. You know McGregor wants it.
