The information about Dana White’s indifference to Pacquiao vs. McGregor bout became a popular topic for discussion in recent sports news.
In one of his interviews, the UFC president has commented on the possible fight between the “PacMan” and the retired Irish boxer and mixed martial artist. However, it may seem surprising for some UFC fans but White hasn’t shown any interest in this match.
The reason why the mega-fight doesn’t impress the promoter
It is worth mentioning that it is McGregor’s third retirement from MMA. Two previous times were unsuccessful because the Irishman couldn’t resist the temptation to taste the victory again. Now the situation repeats as Conor has written the message to Pacquiao on his social media, saying that he is ready to compete against him. Earlier, White has said that he isn’t going to return the “Notorious” to the octagon.
Moreover, the Filipino has other more urgent opponents to fight in the nearest time. For example, Yordenis Ugas, who is the number-one rival, according to the World Boxing Association. Although the COVID-19 pandemic has changed the schedule, their bout has to take place.
