The UFC President says he has agreed in principle with McGregor on all the details about the Mayweather fight. White says they just need to put pen to paper, and expect it to be done on Sunday 14 May.
[Conor and I] are not meeting. We’re right there to get this deal done. I would like to get it done this Sunday, and start negotiating with team Mayweather. I think we’re there. Conor and I have agreed on a deal. Then you get a bunch of lawyers involved, and it [could get] stupid. As soon as this is done, we go to work. It will be me and [Al] Haymon, in Vegas or LA…If that deal can get done, then we’ll get it done. If we can’t, I’ll need to move on. It’s either going to happen this year, or it’s never going to happen at all. This isn’t something that I’m going to spend a bunch of time on, or I’m going to dedicate the next three months of my life to. Conor wants to fight twice this year. He feels the same way. He wants one of those fights to be Floyd, if possible.
