White: Mayweather fight doesn't hurt UFC, it 'elevates' McGregor .
Whatever happens to Conor McGregor in his boxing debut, Dana White doesn't see his reputation getting besmirched. Shortly after McGregor's August blockbuster boxing match with Floyd Mayweather was confirmed Wednesday, the UFC president joined a conference call to shoot down speculation on whether a loss to the pugilist would hurt the promotion or the Irishman's legacy. The way White sees it, McGregor should be commended - not questioned - for daring to share a ring with the decorated, undefeated Mayweather.
