Floyd Mayweather remains locked in talks with UFC chief Dana White regarding a massive MMA rematch with Conor McGregor.

Despite McGregor recently wishing Mayweather ‘a happy retirement’ suggesting talks were off, White says a second bout continues to be a possibility.

In the TMZ Sports video clip, White also confirmed McGregor will be stripped of his UFC lightweight title moving forward.

McGregor hasn’t defended for over a year and White will move to give mandatory Khabib Nurmagomedov his chance soon.

“The only way a rematch makes sense in that fight is in the UFC,” White said regarding the Mayweather situation before stating: “he absolutely should be worried about his skills” on facing McGregor in the octagon.

White also insisted, “Anything is possible,” as rumors gather paced of a summer showdown in Las Vegas.

On McGregor stalling his UFC career waiting for Floyd, White believes it’s highly possible “Conor might never come back” – other than for Mayweather.
