What's next! A third belt?

A few months back McGregor challenged Mayweather to a boxing match and also had posted a picture of the two on Instagram. The possible rumours of the fight happening died down later due to McGregor’s contract obligations. 

Following McGregor’s victory over Eddie Alvarez at UFC 205, he once again issued a challenge to Mayweather. The undefeated boxing icon responded by saying that The Notorious one isn’t in his league and also contradicted any claims that McGregor was the ‘Mayweather of MMA’.

When asked by TMZ what he thought of Mayweather comparing Mcgregor to an ant, the Irish Champion said, “Tell him to say it to my face!”

Here’s the short interview that begins with Mcgregor being asked what he thought of Mayweather claiming that he didn’t watch the UFC 205 main event. 

The talks of the dream fight have once again begun. 

It appears now McGregor isn’t just looking for a big fight but wants to grasp the opportunities to make mega dream fights. And he proved it last Sunday by becoming the first to hold two UFC belts simultaneously. 

Mystic Mac has already demanded a $100 million paycheck if he were to square off against the former eleven-time boxing champion in a boxing ring. But on the contrary, Dana White had previously mentioned that if the fight were to happen Mayweather would have to call him first.

In other boxing news, there have also been talks of a rematch between Manny Pacquiao and Floyd Mayweather. Mayweather being the business man means that he is will only pick a match that is to his advantage.
