As noted, current UFC lightweight champion Conor McGregor was reportedly in talks with WWE for a one-off appearance at WrestleMania 34, according to a report by SunSport in the U.K. The report noted that "a deal is close" with WWE. UFC President Dana White has noted that he has a good business relationship with Triple H but it's a more hard situation with Vince McMahon.
"It's not true. It's absolutely not true", White said.
White also revealed when the story originally surfaced he texted WWE Owner Vince McMahon and asked about the rumours. The hosts of the show urged White to let them see the text messages, with White then showing them his phone.
White said that he had just texted with Vince McMahon 5 minutes before going on the air and he asked about the rumors.
McMahon: "Anytime. It might be great someday, but not now".
McGregor, 29, hasn't set foot inside the Octagon since his historic UFC 205 victory over Eddie Alvarez, a triumph which saw him become the first fighter in the promotion's history to hold two titles simultaneously.
