The answer every sports and fight enthusiast is waiting for will reportedly come his Sunday as UFC chief Dana White has given Conor McGregor a deadline to agree a deal to fight Floyd Mayweather.
The prospect of megafight between the UFC star and the undefeated Mayweather moved a step closer after White issued an ultimatum to McGregor to agree to his terms by Sunday.
Speaking earlier today white said he fully intends to iron out McGregor’s terms by Sunday before talking to Mayweather Promotions CEO Leonard Ellerbe on Monday.
White who is one of the key negotiators in the crossover fight told ESPN: “I plan on having [McGregor’s terms] locked up by Sunday and then move on to team Mayweather to start negotiating with them.”
“White then explained that Sunday was “absolutely” the deadline to agree a deal with McGregor.”
“[But] if we really do get it done [with McGregor] I still need to go and negotiate with [Team Mayweather] and there’s no guarantee that we’re going to come to a deal.”
However despite the shortening timeline, the UFC boss said he is hopeful that “this thing could possibly happen.”
