President Dana White himself admitted he was preparing for a rematch with Khabib for Conor until he was stabbed in the back by the Irish puncher.
Only four text messages were revealed, Conor McGregor ignited the fiery divisions with Dana White. The conflict mainly came from scheduling inconsistencies between the two sides.
On the side of Dana White, the UFC chairman said he had planned to have Khabib Nurmagomedov and Conor McGregor rematch later this year. The two boxers will face off in the form of coaches of The Ultimate Fighter season – the UFC talent selection program, before facing the ring.
However, when Conor McGregor revealed his private chat, Khabib from agreeing to participate immediately withdrew from this project of White. Perhaps the broken plan was the main reason why Dana White was so angry with Conor.

When Conor McGregor and Manny Pacquiao announced their return the following year, audiences continued to wonder when the legendary Floyd Mayweather Jr, the most famous puncher of blockbuster matches, will return.
Since 2017, after the match with Conor McGregor, Floyd Mayweather Jr has never officially returned to the professional boxing ring (the match against Tenshin Nasukawa at the end of 2018 was just for show).
In early 2020, Floyd announced that it would reunite with UFC and President Dana White on a big project. However, the ex-wife and coach – the uncle Roger Mayweather, in turn, passed away caused Floyd to postpone his plans.
