Alvarez vows to put McGregor beating behind him at UFC 211

Floyd Mayweather vs. Conor McGregor Fight News 2017: Mayweather- McGregor Loses Fight Date to Alvarez-Golovkin

"That was the date we were shooting for", White said. "Conor wants to fight Floyd, Conor wants to fight twice this year, so, you know, we'll just have to see how this thing plays out". White said. "Can the deal be done?"

If he can get McGregor on board at the end of the weekend, then he'll meet with Mayweather and his team to finalize the deal.

"He makes a bunch of things up about why he's not fighting me, or why he doesn't want to fight me", Alvarez says.

Floyd Mayweather (left) and Conor McGregor (right) have reportedly agreed to terms on a mega-fight. And absolutely, there's going to be a point where I'm done. After that I've tried to go to every local MMA event around the Gulf Coast and surrounding areas and decided to make it a point to have a career in some aspect in the fighting sport other than fighting in general (didn't want to ruin my face). "That's what this fight is to me".


During yesterday's edition of The Herd, however, the UFC President made the revelation that MMA and boxing fans alike have been expecting for sometime: that he may be close to moving on from the fight entirely. Alvarez was just 23 at the time, and Mayweather, with a 49-0 record on the line, may not want to take on a stronger, more experienced version of the Mexican fighter.

Well, it would be hard not to have seen this coming.

Only adding further confusion to things has been the perpetually shifting optimism of Dana White regarding whether or not the fight will actually happen - one day, he's telling Conan O'Brien that it 100% will and don't you dare think that it wont, and the next, he's blaming Canelo-GGG for stealing the date of the would-be fight and saying that all hope is lost. He last defeated Eddie Alvarez for the lightweight championship at UFC 205, capping off another blockbuster year for the sport's biggest draw. "Fighting's unique. You can prepare a million times, you can know everything that you're going to do, (but) you get hit with a shot, get stupid for a little bit and make some bad decisions, things go bad quickly and that's what happened November 5".

During a Thursday appearance on the Jim Rome Show on CBS Sports (via Fox Sports' Damon Martin), White said he's placed a Sunday deadline on McGregor's side of negotiations for arranging a boxing matchup with Mayweather.
