The Ultimate Fighting Championship is loaded with great talents. And its officials would not have a hard time making dream matchups.
However, for the promotion chief, Dana White, there is one name he would want to see in the list of his biggest dream fights – Conor McGregor.
This is probably why he has been demanding for company ownership. But White has refused to grant him company shares, which forced McGregor to call it a career.
Speaking to 8 Las Vegas, the top honcho stressed that the MMA superstar is not yet retired from UFC. They are scheduled to meet in the next couple of weeks to figure things out that will make the Irishman happy.
He also shared that he wants to see “The Notorious” star in what could be the two biggest MMA fights ever in the UFC.

No doubt, White has included McGregor’s name when asked about his dream matchup in a recent interview.
“The biggest fight if I look right now, is if Floyd came over to MMA, over to UFC and fought Conor again in a rematch, that would be huge,” he told 8Las Vegas (via MMA Mania).
“Then a Conor and Khabib rematch is massive. Really the two biggest fights in the world right now are with Conor McGregor.”
Making Conor Happy
Days after the first fight between Conor and Khabib, it was already confirmed that an immediate rematch would not happen, considering the outcome of the fight.
McGregor said he is ready to face the next in line before getting another shot at the lightweight title.
Recently, he has been rumoured to fight Donald Cerrone next. But the UFC veteran said it might not happen as the Irish star doesn’t want a co-main event slot.
Meanwhile, the Russian champ is linked to a unification title bout with the winner of the Max Holloway vs Dustin Poirier bout.
As for the Mayweather rematch in MMA, it is very unlikely to happen as the undefeated legend always “wants to do it in his own rules.”

But White has to lure McGregor out of retirement first to have the biggest draw back in his nest again.
