McGregor not keen on Pacquiao fight

Adjust Comment Print

He defended the title over and over again.

However, "GSP" did not completely seem on board with the idea as he would later be sidelined indefinitely after being diagnosed with ulcerative colitis, a potentially serious condition.

There was another major return in combat sports, when another UFC superstar - Georges St-Pierre - announced he was coming back to the cage.

Rush's head coach said, via MMA Fighting: "I think Georges is gonna get better, get back in the gym". "He's going to feel his body out and see what he wants. Mayweather? McGregor? We need a mega-fight".

There's no shortage of people calling out McGregor these days, and it makes sense for St-Pierre to get in line.

Despite losing to Mayweather via a tenth-round TKO, however, McGregor is believed to have pocketed a whopping £58.2m from the mega-bout and has flaunted his eyewatering wealth. There's no chance he would be willing to step into the Octagon, there's a big discrepency in size between them and if "Money" did decide to come back out of retirement to box again then a rematch with McGregor would be the much more profitable option.

Meanwhile, Rafael dos Anjos is now eyeing a fight UFC welterweight champion Tyron Woodley following his UFC on Fox 26 win over Robbie Lawler. If McGregor decides to come back to the UFC and defend his title, it could be nearly a full year before we could get a chance to see this "mega fight" between St-Pierre and McGregor. Lots of guys had their chance. "He's helped it grow".

While he did not display the skills or the potential of being a great boxer, it's a fact that he's always there to fight and draw the fans. It's a relationship. We've got to respect the company, we've got to respect all the fighters, you've got to respect all these big names making the way. "But why? Because of all the greats that came before". And against St-Pierre, who made his career on taking down expert strikers and wrestlers alike and smashing them into a mush with ground-and-pound?
