UFC president Dana White says he expects mixed-martial arts to eventually be included as a sport at the Olympics.

Speaking to UFC Unfiltered, he says that he and his team have been working on the possibility in recent years.

"My team's been working on that for a long time, for four or five years. It's eventually going to happen and it's just a matter of when and how many resources we want to put behind it you know," he said.

White also spoke about Conor McGregor's future after the UFC 202 victory over Nate Diaz.

"Conor is such a f***ing super-talented athlete. You can only have so many of those wars in your career. When he's at his right weight, the guy is awesome. He's super-talented. I want to see him fight all the best in the world at his weight. Not 30 pounds everywhere," he said.
