White was growing impatient with the time he has been spending on the proposed fight and put the deadline in place, threatening to walk away if a deal on McGregor‘s side couldn’t be set.
Now the UFC president will go to Team Mayweather to lock down the deal.
White told ESPN’s Brett Okamoto: “We’re right there to get this deal done.
“If not, we’ll move on. I think we’re there. Conor and I have agreed on a deal.
“But then you get a bunch of lawyers involved and things get stupid.”
White added he plans to sit down with team Mayweather on Monday, saying: “Hopefully Monday I’m going to go and sit down with Team Mayweather.
“I still need to go negotiate with them. There’s no guarantee that we’re going to come to a deal.”
It’s been widely reported that Floyd Mayweather will get £77million and McGregor will take £58m for their mega-bout.
