Floyd Mayweather Offered $1 Billion to Fight in UFC

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

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

But Showtime, who broadcast the fight in the U.S., have now revealed that the August 26 showdown failed to beat Mayweather's showdown with Pacquiao in 2015.

Ditto two-time world champion Paulie Malignaggi, who has been calling out McGregor after Conor released edited footage that appeared to show Paulie getting dropped in a sparring session, which Paulie contests.

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

With speculation mounting regarding his fighting future and whether or not he will ever return to the Octagon, McGregor said he is putting his boxing career on hold for a bit and want an MMA fight next.

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. His 2007 clash against De La Hoya recorded 2.48 million buys.

It's also possible Peterson's incredible, Hall of Fame career will quietly end after a final season wearing two foreign uniforms. He sat out 11 games last season (torn meniscus) and also missed time in 2013, 2011, 2010 and 2007 due to injuries.

The total global revenue from the event including ticket sales, sponsorship and worldwide distribution exceeds $600 million, which-along with Mayweather vs. Pacquiao- is among the largest for a single-day sporting event of all time. With a potential trilogy fight against rival Nate Diaz or a title unification fight against interim champion Tony Ferguson.

Pacquiao said earlier this month that preliminary talks had begun over a boxing match between him and McGregor.

However, the figures of the Money Fight are nearly double of the third biggest fight, which again featured Mayweather against Oscar De La Hoya in 2007 and had 2.48 million buys.

You couldn't blame McGregor for tossing up the idea of boxing again. Remember, I'm Floyd "Money" Mayweather, and you motherfucker love me, and I love you motherfucker.
