Twitter Melts Down Over Rumors Of Conor McGregor vs. Floyd Mayweather

It’s been yet another weird news week for fans of mixed martial arts, and once again UFC featherweight champion Conor McGregor is at the centre of it all. His standoff with the UFC got escalated another notch today, as rumors ran wild of a planned ‘billion dollar’ boxing match against Floyd Mayweather.

The two polarizing pugilists do have a history, with plenty of trash talk going back-and-forth, and the now retired ‘Money’ Mayweather has gone on record many times claiming he doesn’t know who McGregor is. Aside from the obvious fact ‘The Notorious’ is signed to an iron-clad contract with the UFC, a fight against one of the greatest boxers of this era is unlikely, at best, for a number of reasons.

For starters, for McGregor to step in to the boxing ring would probably take away his biggest advantage, the mixed elements of his martial arts training. That said, a billion dollar fight would probably mean a swift retirement fund for McGregor, so who wouldn’t take that fight?
