McGregor Reacts To Pacquaio Boxing Match Speculation

Murray for USA TODAY Sports

However, it looks like he could have a bright future in both.

In the absence of Conor McGregor, the UFC installed former TUF alum Tony Ferguson as the Interim Lightweight Champion, effectively making him the Dublin native's next opponent by default.

Mayweather vs. McGregor, a four-fight SHOWTIME PPV boxing event at T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, officially stands as the second largest pay-per-view event of all time behind Mayweather vs. Pacquiao, which set the North American pay-per-view mark at 4.6 million buys in 2015.

Mayweather and McGregor's PPV total was nearly double the third biggest fight of all time, which again featured the 40-year-old American.

But Friday night, he gave perhaps his most definitive clue yet for his next venture: You can expect him back in the UFC's octagon - not in a boxing ring.

The Ball Brothers Just Signed With A Pro Lithuanian Team
The team has discussed a role of 20-to-25 minutes a game apiece in the Baltic League, a source told ESPN . The team has no general manager and doesn't practice regularly due to the poor financial situation.

Since then he's not fought in either boxing or MMA.

But McGregor shot that down real fast - insulting the sweet science in the process. saying, "I think a true right is what I want to do next". A real fight. Exactly what's a real fight?

Meanwhile, Pacquiao confirmed last week that he was in talks with McGregor over a possible fight in April 2018.

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.

For as long as McGregor seems intent on holding off on committing to a new UFC deal, there will continue to be a heathy number of potential suitors inside the ropes.
