White Calls Out Mayweather

The McGregor vs. Mayweather fight that has been floated since May appears to be developing some legs. Yesterday, Mayweather compared himself to an elephant and McGregor to an ant. McGregor dismissed the dismissal by saying “say it to my face.”

For now many months, UFC president Dana White repeatedly said, “Floyd, call me.” But Mayweather never picked up the phone, and McGregor contractually cannot compete in any professional fight without White’s ok. However, White ran into Mayweather’s friend and associate 50 Cent at a restaurant during UFC 205 fight week, and was made to believe Mayweather was serious.

Now TMZ Sports has reached out to White over Mayweather’s Elephant-Ant comment.

“Conor McGregor … if he touches you, you go to sleep,” said White. “Floyd puts people to sleep too, with his fighting style, not with his hands. You know how Floyd knocks people out? When they’re not looking. Watch the Victor Ortiz fight.”

“This kid’s just getting started. This kid’s 28 years old. Floyd can say what he wants about Conor, but even other fighters have to respect him. He’s special. Floyd’s never even come close to doing to other fighters what Conor does.”

White went on to offer Mayweather respect for all he has accomplished but noted correctly that Conor is the future.

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.
