McGregor Rules Out Pacquiao, Says Return To MMA is Next

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

McGregor has been rumored to be making his way to WWE and has said that he would defeat Mayweather in a rematch.

UFC president Dana White has dismissed suggestions of Conor McGregor having another boxing match before he defends his lightweight title.

At this point, Conor McGregor can do anything he wants.

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

"SHOWTIME Sports confirmed today that the SHOWTIME PPV presentation of Mayweather vs. McGregor on August 26, 2017 generated 4.3 million pay-per-view buys in North America".

"I can do a three or four fight deal in the Octagon and make a billion dollars". The SHOWTIME PPV totals for Mayweather vs. McGregor far exceed the now third best event in history-nearly doubling the 2.48 million buys for Oscar De La Hoya vs. Mayweather in 2007.

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

The most logical option would be a fight against interim lightweight champion Tony Ferguson, but "El Cucuy" recently underwent elbow surgery.

He'll not be lacking for takers if he returns to the Octagon in 2018. This would be another big money fight for him.

You couldn't blame McGregor for tossing up the idea of boxing again. "He's not that great a boxer, and I think we all saw that".

Instead, he elected to take on Floyd Mayweather in a highly lucrative boxing match this past August, suffering a TKO defeat to "Money" in the 10th round.
