Floyd Mayweather and Conor McGregor are still involved in banter over social-media and have been taking digs at each other ever since their boxing match. Mayweather has also raised speculation over his MMA debut by posting pictures and videos of him training inside the octagon. Hence, it has led to a lot of rumours claiming that the pair might face other again, but this time it will be inside the octagon. Mayweather Jr. has just added fuel to the fire by revealing that he will be applying for a MMA license.
Conor McGregor last fought and defeated Diaz at UFC 202 via unanimous decision. He then went on to challenge former UFC lightweight champion, Eddie Alvarez for his title. “The Notorious” defeated Alvarez via TKO in the second round at UFC 205. However, he has been on a hiatus from MMA ever since and instead went on to have a much discussed boxing match with the legendary Floyd ‘Money’ Mayweather. Conor McGregor and Floyd Mayweather had a multi-million dollar boxing match last summer. “The Notorious” had lost the bout via TKO in the tenth round. Although, he did receive a lot of praise for his valiant effort against arguably the greatest boxer of the current generation.
The boxing bout between ‘Money’ Mayweather and “Mystic Mac” was one of the biggest ever. It sold around 4.3 million in PPV sales and it certainly won’t be a surprise if a rematch between the pair even breaks the record of Floyd vs. Pacquiao in PPV numbers.
‘Money’ Mayweather recently spoke to TMZ. In his interview, he hinted a potential MMA fight with McGregor might really happen. He also revealed that he will soon apply for a MMA license. Here’s what he had to say:
Not yet but everything takes time, Eventually we’re gonna apply for the license and hopefully we can fight. I’ll probably need a little bit longer [than three months to train]. A Little bit longer, even if it takes six to eight months. Whatever it takes. We want to make sure that everything is done correctly and everything is done the right way.
