"I have my eyes on one thing and that's Floyd Mayweather", said McGregor at an event in Manchester.
During a special interview Saturday, Conor McGregor boldly claimed that his next fight will be with Floyd Mayweather. "Once we come to a number than I'm happy with, that he's happy with ... then we go to the customers". I don't know what his number is but on my side, we have to do a job and hopefully all the fans in the United Kingdom can come over and support me.
'I have to communicate with my team, the fight hasn't been made yet but it is all about entertainment so hopefully it can happen'.
McGregor says he's stepping away from mixed martial arts to focus on a boxing mega-fight with another guy with WWE ties, Floyd Mayweather.
UFC President Dana White has previously suggested he would stage the fight after a series of high-quality UFC bouts to help ensure a strong product in light of Mayweather's strongly favored status in a potential meeting.
"I'm happy there was an offer made", McGregor said. "It's a fight the people want, it's the fight I want". While McGregor is known for not having a filter and speaking before thinking, his resume in UFC has shown that he is, and can be, an asset and cash cow wherever he goes.
"I believe the next time I step into a combat arena will be through the ropes wearing 10-ounce or eight-ounce gloves", McGregor said.
The size that Roman Reigns and AJ Styles pointed out also probably wouldn't stop Conor McGregor from achieving WWE success. That may be a disappointment to UFC fans who want to see the 21-3 McGregor continue to defend his lightweight belt (he also was the featherweight champion vacated that belt). "I knew then he had a career".
"I was expecting a different situation, but I couldn't believe it when I watched it". For some time now we'd been discussing the possibility of "The Notorious" becoming bigger than the promotion.
"I think it's smoother if everyone just gets together, we get it involved". Nevertheless, the Conor McGregor vs. Floyd Mayweather dream fight will remain a dream with a lot of obstacles to make it a reality. During the interview, McGregor called Cena a "big fat 40-year-old failed Mr. Olympia motherf***er", as well as talked about his neon-colored gear.
