While Dana says he applauds both Paul bros for "injecting themselves into the fight world" ... he makes it pretty clear when it comes to fighting skill, they're not even on the same planet as Conor and Floyd.
"There's a market for these kinda fights. It's just not what I do," White says.
"There will be a day when Conor McGregor could do these types of fights and make a bunch of money," White adds ... but it ain't happening any time soon.
In the meantime, Conor is gearing up for his Jan. 23 fight against Dustin Poirier at UFC 257 ... and that ain't no exhibition!
