Dana White tell TMZ Sports … he hopes Floyd Mayweather finally hangs up the gloves after his exhibition with Logan paul.
… but as for Logan Paul one day fighting in the UFC, Dana isn’t exactly saying no!
“I would love to see Floyd retire,” White tells us… “He’s had an amazing career and doing this type of fight is silly.”
Now to Logan … who has said repeatedly that he would kill for a combat shot in the UFC because he has a legitimate wrestling background and believes he could actually compete in the Octagon.
So, Dana… would you ever sign Logan Paul for a UFC contract?
“I don’t know man … I don’t know.”
“Here’s the thing, not to say that I didn’t bring a guy who was 0-0 in the UFC and has done those kinds of fights before… I don’t know.”
White is obviously a reference CM Punk, the former WWE superstar who got 2 fights in the UFC despite no previous professional experience in MMA. Punk lost both of his fights unbalanced.
But, White respects Logan’s work ethic and athleticism – as well as his marketing power… and says there will always be a market for famous people to step into the ring.
“Imagine if Kim Kardashian wanted to fight Amanda Nunes … how big would that fight be ?!”
“What do you think Kim Kardashian would do if she fought Amanda Nunes… probably more than anyone ever, ever!”
There’s more … we also talked about this STACKED card for UFC 263 this weekend with the Israel Adesanya vs. Marvin vettori and the return of Nate diaz!
Diaz takes Leon edwards – and White says if Diaz can beat the # 3 ranked welterweight, he’d be back in the conversation for a title shot!
