UFC President Dana White after giving a deadline for the agreement of the deal on the Mayweather – Conor McGregorfight, has gone a step further to talk to one side of the fight. He earlier announced on the Jim Rowe Show that he would only proceed with plans for the fight if Conor agrees to the deal by Sunday.
“I think we are there. Conor and I have agreed on a deal. Then you get a bunch of Lawyers involved, and it (could get) stupid.” Dana White uncovered to ESPN‘s Brett Okamoto. “As soon as this is done, we go to work. It will be me and Haymon in Vegas or LA”.
Dana White said the fight was slated for September 16th but it got taken by the Canelo and Golovkin fight so they have to get a new date. “Conor is having a baby so obviously that’s where his focus is right now. We were shooting for a September 16th date but these guys just took it right now. So it looks like it ain’t happening in September you know? we will figure it out, October, November, December, i don’t know” he told FightHype.com
Conor and his girlfriend Dee Devlin welcomed their first child on 5th May and has since then dedicated his time and care for his new boy. Dana White wants to give his favorite among the two a little time off so he can prepare adequately for the fight.
