Dana White responds to bizarre McGregor-Mayweather II rumour

Earlier today, Omar Al Raisi, editor in chief of The Sports Journal, claimed that the McGregor versus Mayweather rematch would take place inside the Octagon with modified rules.

Reports suggested that the UFC was set to announce this fight as well as a new contract for McGregor that would see him earning millions at a press conference before the chaos that occurred at the Barclays Center last Thursday in Brooklyn, New York.

This is a very strange proposition as it is essentially a boxing match inside the Octagon. Since the rumour started circulating, Dana White, however, seems to have squashed the idea – as can be seen in the tweet below.

Oli’s take: I think modified rules in some form would make sense. You can’t expect Mayweather, at 41 years of age, to start practising wrestling, jiu-jitsu and Muay Thai. Although, stripping down MMA to that level is a step too far.
