UFC president Dana White denied Wednesday that there have been any discussions between his organization and the camp of Floyd Mayweather about a fight against Featherweight champion Conor McGregor, but said that he’s ready to talk if Mayweather is interested. 

Appearing on the Dan Patrick Show, White said that negotiations for the fight would have to go through the UFC, as McGregor is currently under contract.

"We haven't talked about it. Conor McGregor's under contract with the UFC," White said. "If Floyd wants to fight Conor—call me, Floyd."

The superfight between the two biggest faces in their respective sports has gained attention in recent days after Mayweather indicated that it is a possibility.
