Conor McGregor Says He Wants a UFC Fight Next

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

No matter who his next fight was going to be against, McGregor has said he wanted to fight on his terms, meaning it could still be a while before we see him inside the Octagon again, depending on how negotiations go between himself and the UFC.

But McGregor has poured cold water on that possibility.

Pacquiao told Agence France-Presse (via Yahoo Sports) last week he'd have "no problem" taking on McGregor and said there were some initial contract discussions between the camps, "but we have not yet had any follow-up conversations". Although White said that is not happening and that if those talks had begun, he was going to sue, fans have grown exhausted of McGregor holding up the 155-pound division. "A real fight", McGregor said while signing autographs.

McGregor was hanging out with his girlfriend Dee Devlin in New York City when he was quizzed about his future and speculations regarding his potential boxing against Pacquiao, TMZ reported.

This confirms a tweet that was sent out by UFC chief Dana White earlier in the week: "He's not Boxing [sic] anyone so calm down cry babies", tweeted White on Friday morning.

McGregor lost a 10th-round TKO to Floyd Mayweather in a lucrative boxing match in August.

Despite many labelling the fight a mis-match, however, the fighters had hoped the bout would become the richest in the sport's history.

Although McGregor casually claimed that the bout had sold in excess of 6 million pay-per-view buys, Showtime Sports confirmed a final figure of 4.3 million North American purchases for the highest grossing fight of 2017.

The news does mean, however, that "Money" has been involved in the four most popular fights in boxing history.

Tagged the "Fight of the Century" the Mayweather-Pacquiao bout took over six years in negotiations but eventually failed to live up to the hype with the Filipino southpaw nursing an injury.

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.
