Dana White has shot down reports that a fight between Conor McGregor and Donald Cerrone is in the works. TMZ caught up with White and asked him about the possibility of the fight after Cerrone teased the matchup on social media.

White said that rumors about the fight are “absolutely not true” and added, “Obviously, that’s the fight that ‘Cowboy’ Cerrone wants, but that’s not true.”

He went on to discuss the possibility of former McGregor opponents Khabib Nurmagomedov and Floyd Mayweather facing off outside the UFC, saying, “The answer is no. He’s gonna have to come here and get his ass whooping. We did that last time. You gotta come here this time. Every time he wants to box. You wanna fight? Want to make 150 million? Come over here and get your ass whooped.”
