Dana White and Bob Arum shoot down potential Pacquiao-McGregor boxing match

UFC chief to sue Pacquiao if boxer negotiates with McGregor

According to Ferguson, the surgery he had on his elbow wasn't serious and he should be able to return no later than March or April next year.

"If we can negotiate it, I have no problem".

The UFC doesn't want to hear about another fight involving Conor McGregor and a famous boxer.

There is also the issue that White and Pacquiao's promoter Bob Arum have a very frosty relationship which has lasted for many years.

If Manny Pacquiao and Conor McGregor are having talks, one person in particular isn't happy about it.

Pacquiao told AFP that both sides would be "OK" with a fight between the two.

McGregor has not fought since his sole venture inside a boxing ring - an unsuccessful tenth round loss to unbeaten American boxer Floyd Mayweather.

White wasn't very impressed to see that his biggest star was still entertaining thoughts of boxing and emphasized that McGregor was under contract with the UFC and could not box without getting the permission of the UFC. "If that's true, I will be suing Manny Pacquiao and whoever is representing him". McGregor (21-3), who hasn't fought in the UFC since he won the lightweight championship in November 2016, posted a photo inspired by the video game "Grand Theft Auto", with the simple caption "Tony".

Speculation has built over recent months regarding another "superfight" this time between McGregor and another legendary fighter in Manny Pacquiao. But while McGregor has risen even further since then, Diaz's fighting future has remained unclear due to a likely contract dispute with the UFC, with the only news being occasional social media back-and-forth between the star and promotional President Dana White.

Pacquiao's latest fight was with Australian Jeff Horn back in July in Brisbane, Australia, when he was stripped of his title via a controversial unanimous decision by the judges.

The good news is McGregor will have some time with Ferguson on the shelf for a little while as he mends his surgically repaired elbow.
