UFC champion Conor McGregor is not giving up on his dream bout. This week, the Irish MMA superstar teased fans about the possibility of facing off against retired boxer Floyd Mayweather Jr.
During a press conference for UFC 205, McGregor did not hold back the possibility of getting Mayweather to fight him.
“Who the f*ck is that guy? Who the f*ck is that? Who the f*ck is that? Oh my God. When I take that guy’s belt – when I take that guy’s belt, I’m looking around, I don’t know what anybody else has – I might have to jump up and f*cking drag Floyd Mayweather and see what the f*ck he’s at.”

Earlier this month, Mayweather downplayed the idea of a McGregor match happening.
It was fun while it lasted, but Floyd Mayweather put the Conor McGregor hype train out of service on Saturday. Mayweather, in an interview with FightHype.com, said that it is time for him to move on from trying to put a fight together with McGregor. “I tried to make the fight happen between me and Conor McGregor,” Mayweather said. “We wasn’t able to make the fight happen, so we must move on.” (Yahoo! Sports)
In late May, Floyd teased fans with a promotional advertisement featuring himself and McGregor.
Recently, G-Unit boss 50 Cent spoke out on Floyd likely coming out of his retirement.
“Floyd and I are really good friends, but we argue like regular people argue. The difference is when we have disputes, it winds up on CNN or Instagram. I can cuss him out, call him names, say whatever I want to him, but he’s my little brother. Every fighter says he’s going to retire—what’s left when you fight the biggest, most highly anticipated fight? But I do think he’ll fight again.” (Vanity Fair)
