When the greatest PPV draw in UFC history announced he would be returning to the Octagon vs. Mark Hunt at UFC 200, UFC president Dana White expressed his thoughts – “It doesn’t suck.”

“According to Brock right now, his training is going great,” said White to TMZ Sports. “He feels like a million bucks. So we’ll see what happens. The thing is, being away from fighting for awhile is tough to do.”

White also discussed the rumored McGregor vs. Mayweather boxing match.

“That ain’t happening,” said White. “It ain’t happening. MAYWEATHER has never called me once about this fight. You don’t make this fight without going through me. Plus, if we start negotiating, it starts with punches kicks and elbows. And we can either add or subtract from there, which ever way we go.

“You know how long it took for Manny Pacquiao and Mayweather to happen? And they’re in the same sport. So you can imagine … not happening.”

If FMJ does call White, certainly with the potential inclusion of kicks and elbows, the fight outcome just got more interesting.

Highly passionate MMA Journalist, and I've followed the sport ever since my favorite fighter, Vitor Belfort won the heavyweight tournament at UFC 12. After that I've tried to go to every local MMA event around the Gulf Coast and surrounding areas and decided to make it a point to have a career in some aspect in the fighting sport other than fighting in general (didn't want to ruin my face). I'm currently enrolled at Southeastern Louisiana University working towards a degree in Communication. I cover MMA, Boxing and Football for The Daily Star newspaper in my hometown of Hammond, Louisiana, in addition to working as a promotional writer for a local Boxing promotion known as BoxnCar and I cover boxing for 8countnews.com however SciFighting.com is my home. My main goal is to bring more publicity to MMA in my area and to the sport as a whole as all of us involved with the sport are merely scratching the surface and laying the foundation of what mixed martial arts competition will be further down the road.
