Dana White planning to bring boxing to the UFC

Bob Arum isn't surprised UFC president Dana White keeps discussing his eventual involvement in boxing.

Check out the trailer for Notorious below and find it in select theaters now. Even though he was stopped by technical knockout in the tenth round of that battle, he's never been stopped via knockout in mixed martial arts.

"I just know how good we are at what we do", White said. The current UFC lightweight champion opened up on his thoughts about retirement while appearing on a recent edition of The Late, Late Show.

Horn's focus is on Gary Corcoran at the Brisbane Convention Centre on December 13 after a Pacquiao rematch was ruled off the table due to his senatorial commitments. "I love the sport", added White.

Jeff Horn is peaking with confidence since the welterweight belt wrapped around his waist, so much so that he would give UFC champion Conor McGregor "no chance" whatsoever of defeating him in the boxing ring.

White added that he believes they just do things better than what the boxing promoters are doing. In a short period of time he went from being an undercard fighter to headlining a card in Dublin, Ireland.

Although White agreed when asked by the LA Times whether a loaded stable like Al Haymon's Premier Boxing Champions could use his frontman skills as promoter, there is no plan in place as to whether UFC will work alone or partner with an established group. "Feeling great today - Thanks everyone for making this the best night of my career!"

'Seeing this, it's taking me back and making me realise, if I really, truly want to get back into the fighting - I'm in the negotiation stage, ' he said following the premiere of his documentary movie 'Notorious'.

Mayweather and McGregor pocketed guaranteed purses of $100 million and $30 million, respectively, with those numbers final earnings expected to balloon as high as $300 million and $100 million after PPV sales.

Where it goes is a major question at this point in time.
