UFC President Dana White is calling for Floyd Mayweather to make good on his teases about stepping in the octagon for a fight.

Over the past few weeks, undefeated boxing champion Mayweather, who is currently retired, has posted videos of himself wearing MMA gloves and stepping in a cage.

UFC lightweight champ Conor McGregor (21-3 MMA, 9-1 UFC), who lost to Mayweather (50-0 boxing) in an August boxing match, has attempted to lure "Money" by claiming he would regret not fighting him for the rest of his days.

White added on with his thoughts during an appearance on Wednesday's edition of "UFC Tonight" on FS2.

"Floyd said leading up to the fight with Conor that he would do both," White told hosts Michael Bisping and Kenny Florian. "We'll see what happens. Obviously the only way making that fight again makes sense is if he comes into the octagon. We went over and boxed him, the UFC and Conor McGregor. Now it's time for him to reciprocate and come fight in the octagon."

Mayweather, who turns 41 this month, has fought just once since September 2015. He beat McGregor by TKO in Round 10 of "The Money Fight" and said afterward he was officially retired.
