Conor McGregor vs Floyd Mayweather: Fantasy Boxing Match Happening Soon?
Conor McGregor is on cloud nine following his majority decision win over Nate Diaz at UFC 202 last weekend. With that over and done with, it will be interesting what the Irishman is planning to do next.Advertisement
McGregor did hint that a third match with Diaz would be possible if it would be done at 155lbs. Before that, Dana White did make it clear that “The Notorious” would have to defend his actual UFC featherweight title first, most likely against Jose Aldo, Fox Sports reported.
Looking over his antics, McGregor does practically anything he wants. White is not expected to object for as long as it brings in the revenue. But what if the Irishman’s next match is not in the Octagon and inside the boxing ring?
McGregor vs. Mayweather Revived?
In this scenario, it is all about the money McGregor stands to make. He doesn’t mind the stipulations as long as the money is on the table. Right now it will be interesting if this goes anywhere though there are other factors to consider.
Will The UFC Allow It To Happen?
The UFC has been known to take control of its fighters, McGregor included. It is no secret that White and the UFC bosses are not too thrilled of such a match unless they were involved in the booking.
