McGregor (21-3 MMA, 9-1 UFC), the No. 1 ranked fighter in the USA TODAY Sports/MMAjunkie MMA lightweight rankings and No. 3 pound-for-pound fighter, has yet to defend the lightweight title he won in November 2016. He has to defend the title now.

White told ESPN that he is not interested in a St. Pierre vs. McGregor fight, and continued to shoot down rumors of negotiations between both fighters' camps. He tried not to do it, but he contractually had to let go of the 145-pound belt. People loved it, so somewhere down the line there's a possibility for a trilogy, but right now he has to defend his title against Tony Ferguson. The Irish champ, who reportedly banked more than $100 million for "The Money Fight", has said he wants an ownership stake in the UFC, which White won't entertain. "He fought everybody on his way up 145 pounds. And I still don't", White said.

The Dagestani Sambo expert may have to sit out until Ferguson and McGregor finally meet, though an actual second interim bout between Khabib and Tony has been mooted elsewhere. White wasn't happy with St-Pierre's decision to vacate the title and was quick to shut down speculation that the French-Canadian may face McGregor in what would certainly be the biggest fight that can be made in the UFC. However, he was involved in the biggest earning fight of 2017 when he fought Floyd Mayweather in a boxing match in August. However, White shot down any notion that the UFC should have stripped McGregor of the lightweight title by now. "If he wants to come back, [UFC welterweight champion] Tyron Woodley or [middleweight champion] Robert Whittaker is waiting for him".
