Conor McGregor Forget Pacquiao ... I Want an MMA Fight Next!

In a chance interview with entertainment website TMZ, McGregor said he wants to be in a "real fight". I think a true is fight is what I want to.

However, if McGregor was to opt to have another boxing match instead, an intriguing option is available for him, as Manny Pacquiao has stated recently he would be interested in boxing against him. A real fight, what's a real fight?

UFC lightweight champion Conor McGregor said he's focused on a return to MMA amid speculation about a potential boxing match against Manny Pacquiao.

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.

The superfight was the second richest boxing bout in history, long-awaited final figures revealed on Saturday.

But apart from a new Monster Hunter: World trailer (remember that the beta is this weekend) that really was it. The game first made its debut almost 20 years ago on the original PlayStation.

However, Notorious is going to be in no rush to make this fight happen since he has $100 million in the bank after fighting against Mayweather during the summer.

In the end, the boxer defeated the fighter by TKO, at 1:05 of the 10th round, at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas.

Then, while fielding other questions about his next move, McGregor said "MMA next".

Showtime said in a statement that global revenues, including ticket sales, sponsorship and worldwide distribution, Mayweather and McGregor had exceeded $US600 million.

A fight between McGregor and Pacquiao would also create a very delicate scenario, because Arum has traded some very heated words with UFC President on numerous occasions in the last few years. I'll sit back. We'll see how he gets on with this round of money. If I want to, I can come right back to the UFC.
