Despite all the buzz of a boxing match between Floyd Mayweather and Conor McGregor, UFC President Dana White is working on the next UFC fight for “The Notorious.”

White appeared on ESPN’s SportsCenter on Wednesday to announce Luke Rockhold would be fighting Michael Bisping at UFC 199 after Chris Weidman was forced out of the middleweight championship bout due to an injury. White was asked about the latest on McGregor and he shared this bit of information.

“Lorenzo and I are having dinner with Conor McGregor. So tonight at like 10, I’ll have a lot more answers on the Conor McGregor situation,” said White. “We’re in a good place with Conor and we’re looking to make his next fight. We should have that done tonight.”
