Conor McGregor vs. Manny Pacquiao fight rumors have heated up, but that doesn’t mean Dana White cares about it.
Pacquiao signed with Paradigm Sports Management earlier this year. This is interesting as the management group also represents McGregor.
Whether them being repped by the same management group means a fight will get booked remains to be seen, but both fighters have hinted at being interested in a fight.
Earlier in the week McGregor tweeted “I accept,” but it was a comment with no context that went over everyone’s head.

On Saturday he made things a bit more clear by writing “I accept,” again in Filipino — “Tinatanggap ko,” — this made people think he was talking about potentially fighting Pacquiao.
“I think Conor responded on Twitter, he said ‘I accept’ in Tagalog, which is what Filipinos speak,” the reporter asked White at the UFC Vegas 5 post-fight press conference (H/T to MMA Mania). “He’s obviously under the same management firm as Manny Pacquiao which led to a lot of rumors circulating. So is there anything happening there?”
“I don’t care about any of that s**t,” he said.
People said that Conor vs. Floyd Mayweather wouldn’t happen so anything is possible.
