Interim UFC lightweight champion Tony Ferguson opted to get his left elbow fixed while waiting to try and sign a deal to meet UFC champion Conor McGregor.
If all plans go well, the prospective fight between the UFC giant and boxing legend would take place in April next year, during the lengthy recess of the Philippine Senate of which Pacquiao is a member.
There has been a lot of speculation about when McGregor might finally return to the Octagon after not fighting at all in the UFC during 2017.
McGregor's last and only professional boxing bout came back in August when he was knocked out inside 10 rounds by Floyd Mayweather in Las Vegas.
"So, if he applied, I would see no reason why we wouldn't license him".
"That would be weird, because (McGregor's) under contract with us", White toldMMA Junkie. "If that's true, I will be suing Manny Pacquiao and whoever is representing him".
Pacquiao's last fight ended in controversy, losing the WBO welterweight title by unanimous to Jeff Horn in the Battle of Brisbane in July. The Mayweather-McGregor fight was said to draw in 6.7 million pay-per-view buys around the world, earning him around $100 million.
Further, Pacquiao's promoter is Bob Arum, who has traded verbal shots with White for years.
Speculation has built over recent months regarding another "superfight" this time between McGregor and another legendary fighter in Manny Pacquiao. He took to social media over the weekend, calling out Conor and saying he'll be ready in 2018. White said that if Pacquiao made a decision to go ahead with the fight, he would file a lawsuit against Pacquiao and his management. McGregor is the current UFC lightweight champion and hasn't defended his strap after beating Eddie Alvarez at UFC2015 in November 2016.
