Find out why UFC president Dana White has decided to put in a deadline for getting a deal done…
CelebNSports247.com has learned that Dana White is totally fed up with the way the Mayweather-McGregor negotiations have been going.
Dana White told Jim Rome on CBS Sports Radio if he can make the Mayweather-McGregor fight happen, he’s going to move on.
White told “The Jim Rome Show” on CBS Sports Radio:
“I plan on having this thing locked up by this Sunday and then moving on to Team Mayweather and start to negotiate with them. If we really do get it done in that timeframe, then this thing could possibly happen. Again, I still have to go negotiate with them. There’s no guarantee that we’re going to come to a deal.”
The UFC president went on to say:
“I think (the chances of a deal with McGregor) are pretty good. Hopefully Monday I’m going to sit down and negotiate with Team Mayweather. I just can’t keep messing with this thing. I have to run my business and I have to focus on all the other things that are going on around here.”
Later, Dana White told ESPN Radio’s Ryen Russillo Show admits that the UFC “dragged” their feet.
“We dragged our feet, we’ve taken too long, and a great fight [GGG-Canelo] slid into our spot. Life moves on, nobody waits for everything.”
He quickly shared the blame saying:
“It’s everybody’s fault. It’s all of our’s fault — actually it’s not Mayweather’s fault. It’s actually our fault on our side. We haven’t got our stuff together — meaning me and Conor — and we blew the date, so what are you going to do?”
We’ll keep you posted…
