Dana White has made it clear he isn’t a fan of the potential boxing match between Conor McGregor and Floyd Mayweather, but apparently the UFC president doesn’t intend to stop his most bankable star from earning the biggest payday of his career.

“It doesn’t make a lot of sense for my business, but I would never keep Conor from making that kind of money,” White told TMZ, according to Damon Martin of FOX Sports.

“He obviously has a lot of opportunities right now. Tony Ferguson is out there, the Floyd Mayweather thing is out there, we’ll see how this thing plays out.”

The fight between McGregor and Mayweather appears closer than ever – though nothing has been confirmed – with a report that T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas has been reserved in June for the bout.

McGregor is currently sidelined as he awaits the birth of his first child in late April or early May, but Mayweather has continued to push for the fight to happen sooner rather than later, saying he’s “officially out of retirement” for the Irishman.

“Today, I’m officially out of retirement for Conor McGregor,” Mayweather said recently. We don’t need to waste no time. We need to make this sh-t happen quickly. Let’s get it on in June.”
