Mayweather defeated McGregor via 10th-round TKO in a boxing match in Las Vegas in August. The matchup drew a reported 4.3 million North American pay-per-view buys, which made it the second-biggest PPV event of all-time.
UFC president Dana White claimed his company was holding talks with Mayweather about getting involved with the UFC, but Mayweather shut those claims down.
More recently, White laid out a plan in which the UFC will attempt to proceed with the lightweight division in 2018: Either McGregor fighting interim champion Tony Ferguson in March, or Ferguson facing top contender Khabib Nurmagomedov, with the winner meeting McGregor over the summer.
McGregor’s coach, John Kavanaugh, said his camp is advising McGregor to make his next fight a mixed martial arts bout, rather than a return to the ring.
McGregor didn’t take long before coming back at the now retired boxer.
I am the cartel.
