Dana White says he's still "not close" to getting a deal done with Floyd Mayweather to fight Conor McGregor ... but says he's trying his hardest to make it happen.
"To get a deal like this done, this doesn't happen in a couple months," White tells TMZ Sports.
"It's gonna be a tough deal to get done, if it gets done at all."
We also asked him about Mayweather giving reasons why McGregor could actually win the fight -- and White says he was shocked!
"I've never heard Floyd talk like that!"
"Anybody knows a fight is a fight. Anything can happen in a fight especially when you have a guy who hits as hard as Conor does and when you have a guy who is as talented as Floyd."
