So Dana White Says Boxing Could be Moved Under UFC’s “Umbrella”

Remember the Zuffa Boxing shirt Dana White wore (see above)? As he was helping promote the Augst 26th scrap between Conor McGregor and Floyd Mayweather? Well, that shirt prompted some to wonder if we might see White involved in more boxing business moving forward, and it sounds like that could happen.

White recently did an interview with the Wall Street Journal, and during it, he was asked if he might leave MMA to go promote boxing. The UFC President said this (quote via MMA Fighting):

“I could see bringing boxing under our umbrella and trying to see what we could do with that,” White said.” “I could see doing that.”

Now, obviously a lot would have to fall into place, before this is even a possibility. But, if McGregor wants to box again, and other big names with the UFC want to as well, then, you never know right? The UFC could look at holding a boxing card, or promoting hybrid events, every once in a while.
