McGrgor Wants MMA Fight Next, Despite Manny Pacquiao Rumours

Conor Mc Gregor Floyd Mayweather

Notorious stated clearly in the interview that he wants to have a "real fight" next, which he classes as an MMA fight inside the Octagon with UFC.

When Conor McGregor and Floyd Mayweather competed against each other in August of this year, people were really interested in seeing it.

McGregor certainly had an eventful 2017 with his first and only voyage into the boxing world to date coming up short against Floyd Mayweather. A real fight. Exactly what's a real fight?

Whether there's any truth in Mayweather's intentions remains to be seen - but it can't be doubted that the American has the pulling power to make at least $250m per fight should he be unable to resist a 51st bout.

Mixed martial arts star Conor McGregor made it clear where he stands regarding speculation about a possible boxing match with Manny Pacquiao.

Showtime added that global revenues, including ticket sales, sponsorship and worldwide distribution, exceeded $600m (£450.42m).

The richest fight in history is Mayweather's boxing bout with Manny Pacquiao in 2015, which drew 4.6 million buys to earn around 600 million dollars.

When pressed to elaborate, he responded, "MMA next", essentially killing any chance of a McGregor-Pacquiao bout.

This confirms a tweet that was sent out by UFC chief Dana White earlier in the week: "He's not Boxing [sic] anyone so calm down cry babies", tweeted White on Friday morning. "He's not that great a boxer, and I think we all saw that". So if he wants to, lets f***ing do it.
