UFC chief Dana White warns Manny Pacquiao

UFC Interim Champ Tony Ferguson Calls Out Conor McGregor

Ferguson just fought in October when he captured interim title with a submission win against Kevin Lee and he now awaits the return of lightweight champion Conor McGregor so they can hopefully unify the belts next year.

Whether the UFC would allow Diaz to break from his contract and compete in the boxing ring, of course, is hard to say.

UFC President Dana White said he would take legal action against the boxer if he was pushing for a fight since McGregor is still under an exclusive UFC contract.

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

McGregor's last and only professional boxing bout came back in August when he was knocked out inside 10 rounds by Floyd Mayweather in Las Vegas.

Manny Pacquiao has created a stir in both the boxing and MMA community after reports emerged that his management had started discussions with McGregor's team of a possible boxing match in April 2018.

"That would be weird because he's under contract with us", White said after UFC Fresno. 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".

Further, Pacquiao's promoter is Bob Arum, who has traded verbal shots with White for years.

"If that's true, I will be suing Manny Pacquaio and whoever's representing him". He also admitted, however, the UFC needs to make a decision on the future of its 155-pound division. A potential fight in April next year would definitely take him back into the spotlight, and if his fight with McGregor comes to pass, the UFC giant will also have the chance to amend his failed boxing debut.

According to Bob Bennett, the Executive Director of the Nevada State Athletic Commission, there is no reason not grant Nate Diaz's request for a boxing license.
