Lost in the clamorous rush toward last weekend’s megafight between Floyd Mayweather Jr. and Conor McGregor was a potential blockbuster development in the relationship between McGregor and the UFC.

For the first time, company president Dana White wouldn’t rule out granting the 29-year-old Irishman a future ownership stake in the billion-dollar MMA promotion.

“It’s never been done, but anything is possible,” White said during a news conference Tuesday when asked about taking McGregor on as a partner (via MMAjunkie). “… We know what this kid is worth.”

For fans wondering if the UFC and its notoriously money-conscious lightweight champion can remain on the same page moving forward, this provided a glimmer of hope.
