Conor McGregor is putting a potential boxing match with Manny Pacquiao on the backburner, saying he wants a "true fight" in mixed martial arts to be his next bout. I can come right back.

Contrary to widespread reports, the cross-combat fight between Floyd Mayweather Jr and Conor McGregor was not the richest in boxing history, long-awaited final figures revealed on Friday. And what about the WWE? On Periscope, Floyd Mayweather says that the UFC offered him a three to four fight, $1 billion deal to fight in the Octagon. Mayweather has been enjoying retirement, while the UFC star has been involved in a number of controversies in recent months.

"A real fight, what's a real fight?"

However, Notorious is going to be in no rush to make this fight happen since he has $100 million in the bank after fighting against Mayweather during the summer.

I also think that in our current political climate, a satirical action is an important tactic for us to be able to use. The activists claimed the end - calling attention to their issue - justified the means, fake news.

Meanwhile, McGregor hasn't entered the Octagon since November 2016, when he scored a knockout victory over Eddie Alvarez to win the lightweight title.

It made 4.3m pay-per-view buys in North America, second only to Mayweather and Manny Pacquiao's 4.6m in 2015.

Dana White flat out denied the possibility of a fight between McGregor and Pacquiao, going as far as to threaten to sue the highly decorated former champion and "whoever is representing him". "He's not that great a boxer, and I think we all saw that".

Whether there's any truth in Mayweather's intentions remains to be seen - but it can't be doubted that the American has the pulling power to make at least $250m per fight should he be unable to resist a 51st bout.
