'Where are you Floyd?': Khabib adds fuel to Mayweather fight talk

Khabib defeated Mc Gregor in Las Vegas in October

DANA White held talks with Floyd Mayweather's team this week to discuss the possibility of the star joining the UFC.

"I had a meeting yesterday in Los Angeles about this, "White told ESPN on Thursday".

"We'll make sure it never happens again".

"I don't think it's going to happen", he said to ESPN.

"I don't want to say anything that makes it sound like, 'oh wow, this could happen, ' but we had talks yesterday", said White.

You have to think there would be no way Mayweather would fight in an Octagon because he would get destroyed by Khabib.

"This is where the money is", said White, directing his message to Mayweather: "You know it, I know it - we all know it".

"I don't think it's realistic at all, but I didn't think the (McGregor) boxing match was either". Because of this, he only wants to bring Mayweather into the UFC, for a fight using mixed martial arts rules.

"I've been working on the sport for a long time, working on this brand for a long time - (the bout) the biggest stage we've ever had and not our finest moment".

"If Floyd wants to come over here-he says he's been wrestling and doing this or that-if he wants to come over and fight in the UFC, he's more than welcome". But while that assessment hasn't changed much, White did admit this week that there have at least been talks between him and Mayweather's team about the potential to promote Mayweather in the UFC. I haven't talked to Khabib about it at all.

Mayweather previously had been linked to a switch to UFC, but neither his nor Nurmagomedov's camp has addressed the terms of a possible fight.

White may be entertaining the idea of Nurmagomedov following in McGregor's footsteps and facing Mayweather, but he wants the Russian's next fight to see him defend his lightweight crown against Tony Ferguson.

While these statements appear similar to those which came before last year's boxing match between McGregor and Mayweather, White appears to be steadfastly sticking to his guns when it comes to the potential bout taking place in the UFC.

The UFC's lightweight champion made a beeline for the legendary boxer a few days after his career-defining victory over Conor McGregor at UFC 229.
