Dana White on Why Georges St-Pierre "Ain't Fighting" Conor McGregor…

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

"What I said was don't count anything out on him coming over to the UFC", White said.

Back in August, Mayweather briefly came out of retirement to secure a tenth round stoppage over UFC lightweight champion Conor McGregor, in a boxing match, at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas.

McGregor is by far the biggest draw in the history of the sport, while St-Pierre has routinely pulled in gaudy numbers on pay-per-view and at the box office every time he fights.

Meanwhile, a logjam of title contenders now waits to advance while interim champion Tony Ferguson (24-3 MMA, 14-1 UFC) pushes for a title unifier. People loved it, so somewhere down the line there's a possibility for a trilogy, but right now he has to defend his title against Tony Ferguson.

White tells us. he's gunning to promote boxing in 2018 - but he's not targeting a Floyd vs. Conor McGregor rematch. "Anything is possible. I did not believe that McGregor-Mayweather would happen and it did, so anything's possible".

"We're talking to Floyd about doing a UFC deal", White said on December 20, per Brett Okamoto of ESPN.com. "We both knew what was going on", White said about St-Pierre's future when speaking to ESPN on Wednesday. And I still don't, listen, you guys know I was here. "I don't think the guy wants to fight", White mused.

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. "They're both waiting, if Georges wants to come back", he added.

So, ya. It's not surprising to see that White might be miffed at GSP, but to shoot down a bout with McGregor?

"Because if you look at how everything played out, Conor has fought everybody. I think he jumped in, grabbed some cash and went back to Canada".
