UFC lightweight Michael Chiesa endeavored to assault Kevin Lee at a news gathering for specifying his mom. Daniel Cormier has unendingly raised Jon Jones' history of medication use in front of UFC 214 not long from now. Mayweather called McGregor a hostile to gay slur, while "The Notorious" made some racially inhumane remarks. 

White has basically observed everything in his over 15-year keep running as UFC president, and with regards to the work toward Mayweather (49-0 boxing) versus McGregor (21-3 MMA, 9-1 UFC), he doesn't know whether a beyond the field of play stamp exists. 

"What's happening here is as quite a bit of a battle as the battle itself," White advised MMAjunkie before Friday's news meeting in London. "Mayweather presently can't seem to meet his match physically, or verbally, in these kind of circumstances – as of recently. These folks are two of the best to ever do it. To state you cross a line paving the way to a battle? They will attempt to thump each different oblivious in about a month and a half. In this way, I don't know whether you can really cross a line around here."

Tickets go discounted (July) 24. When tickets go on special, that is the point at which this thing will truly begin following and we'll have a thought of what the numbers resemble."
