Conor McGregor Reveals What Needs To Happen For Him To Fight In December


The hype off of UFC lightweight champion Conor McGregor’s unsuccessful professional boxing debut against Floyd Mayweather Jr. is beginning to die down, and mixed martial arts (MMA) fans are ready to see “The Notorious One” return to the Octagon.

Currently, an interim 155-pound championship bout has been put in place to determine who will (likely) challenge the Irishman upon his return to unify the lightweight belts. McGregor held a Q&A event earlier today (Fri. September 29, 2017) in Glasgow, and answered a variety of questions pertaining to his fighting future.

When asked about the possibility of a rematch with Mayweather inside the boxing ring, McGregor believes it’s very possible and wouldn’t be surprised if he got a call from “Money” to fight again due to his rumored tax issues:

As it pertains to the original match-up, McGregor believes fighting Mayweather could have potentially been the easiest fight of his career had he prepared for the bout differently:

After, unquestionably, the biggest payday of his career from his August 26th meeting with Mayweather, the Irish knockout artist says he’s still counting his money from the event:

In regards to MMA competition, McGregor says he’d be more than willing to fight on the UFC’s December 30th pay-per-view (PPV) card, but the only way he’d be up for it is if he only needs to show up for the weigh-ins and the fight – not seeming too willing to participate in the usual press conferences he’s famous for:

McGregor then touched on a rival he made during his preparation for his fight against Mayweather – Paulie Malignaggi, who served as one of McGregor’s sparring partners for some time before the ex-two-weight boxing champ departed due to some unfavorable pictures and videos of him from their sparring sessions leaked out. McGregor challenged Malignaggi to meet him inside the Octagon to settle their differences:

Lastly, McGregor acknowledged next month’s (incorrectly assuming it’s this weekend) interim title bout between Ferguson and Lee and claimed he’d make a decision on his fighting future after the match-up takes place (quote via MMA Junkie):

“Let me see what these two fools do this weekend,” McGregor said.
