White responds to Pacquiao-McGregor speculation

UFC president Dana White has dismissed any chance of him "doing business" with Bob Arum over a potential fight between Manny Pacquiao and Conor McGregor.

White not so long ago admitted that he would be interested in seeing McGregor take on Floyd Mayweather in the UFC, however he was not so forthcoming with speculation that Pacquiao could take on the Irishman.

The Filipino boxer admitted recently that he would interested in taking on McGregor in the boxing ring but wouldn't want to be involved in an MMA bout with 'The Notorious'.

"If McGregor will fight me in boxing, why not?” Pacquiao said. "But not in MMA. MMA is much different than boxing.

"The fight can be at the 140-pound weight division. My normal weight when I’m not on training is just 141 or 142 pounds."

Arum, who is Pacquiao's manager, doesn't have the best relationship with White and White has told him to not waste his time by getting in touch with the UFC over a potential fight.

"Listen, I love Manny Pacquiao, but I don’t love Bob Arum," White told Yahoo! Sports. "You can tell Arum to save his money and not make any calls over here because we aren’t doing business with him."
