Sorry Pacquiao, Mcgregor wants an MMA fight next!

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

The much publicised bout, which also stirred considerable controversy, comes in as the second richest in the history of the sport after generating 4.3 million pay-per-view buys, according to a statement from Showtime sports.

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.

Whether there's any truth in Mayweather's intentions remains to be seen - but it can't be doubted that the American has the pulling power to make at least $250m per fight should he be unable to resist a 51st bout.

The promotion had hoped it could bring McGregor back as early as UFC 219 on December 30 in Las Vegas, but that focus shifted last month to a 2018 return.

This likely means McGregor's next fight will be a lightweight title unification fight with the interim UFC Lightweight Champion Tony Ferguson, and hopefully, this will take place at some point in the early stages of 2018.

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

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.

While McGregor may have missed out on fighting in the highest-grossing pay-per-view of all time, he does potentially have the opportunity to fight Manny Pacquiao.

The legendary coach simply believes that the fight would be a gross mismatch.

UFC President Dana White downplayed those comments and said if they were true he planned to file a lawsuit against the eight-division world champion and his promoters.

"It's a very winnable fight [against Conor McGregor], and there's a lot of money to be made from it".

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".

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".

The biggest money, however, would nearly certainly be a trilogy-completing bout with Nate Diaz, who remains the only man to have defeated McGregor in the UFC.

It is probably safe to say this one won't happen, especially if this man has anything to say about it...
