Conor McGregor and Dana White blast Showtime Boxing in expletive filled rants

Credit PA

And let's be honest, if McGregor wanted to rematch Mayweather in boxing or "Money" ever wanted to fight in the Octagon for some reason, White would probably find a reason to open talks back up with Showtime despite this perceived - and perhaps superficial - slight.

"You know, think about this, and I don't give a s-t about Showtime's f--ing full-of s-t press release they put out", White said.

Russian Khabib Nurmagomedov and lightweight interim champion Tony Ferguson would then battle it out for the prize.

"As long as Conor is willing to fight by March, we could do Khabib versus Tony and then the victor fights Conor for the title", White told Yahoo Sports.

"The Barboza fight was Khabib's biggest fight and he came through with flying colours but that's one fight".

"This is a game of time, time is your enemy in this sport".

After Espinoza responded to a tirade from White on the domestic take for the August 26 boxing match between McGregor (21-3 MMA, 9-1 UFC) and Floyd Mayweather (50-0 boxing), the UFC lightweight champion got in the middle to back up his promoter.

He made a truckload of money previous year by stepping into the ring with Floyd Mayweather Jr. and has dedicated a string of social media posts in recent weeks to asking the organization and any potential opponents to beg for his return, knowing full well that all the leverage in any potential fight negotiation rests in his corner.

"Conor has done very well". That's his choice and his decision but, the belt has to move on.

White offered McGregor a lifeline, saying if he books a fight by March, Nurmagomedov can fight lightweight interim champion Ferguson and then the victor gets a shot at McGregor for the title.

"There are so many ways to win an MMA fight and that grappling and wrestling, if you're going to point to a weakness that Conor has, that's what it is", said Iole. "Or if Conor doesn't want to fight and wants to sit out until next fall, then we would have to make Khabib vs".

"As long as Conor is willing to fight by March, we could do Khabib vs".

"The question is, does he have so much money that he doesn't care anymore and he doesn't really want to fight?"
