Floyd Mayweather's TMT Bodyguards: He's NOT Planning McGregor Rematch

Conor McGregor Floyd Mayweather's TMT Bodyguards: He's NOT Planning McGregor Rematch

White and McGregor during the Mayweather vs. McGregor weigh-in.

"If he chooses to face Nate Diaz next, that signals to me that he's just about done", Clifford told MMAjunkie Radio.

Tony's response, though as freakish and zaney as the man who gave it, also went down a treat.

With the upcoming return of one of the greatest fighters in UFC history, Georges St-Pierre, it only makes sense that the fans want to see him in the biggest fights available. There's even been speculation as to a meeting at UFC 219, which takes place December 30 at T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas.

"I know Al Haymon's talking to Dana White". Even McGregor has finally mentioned Ferguson's name.

Many have mentioned a third bout with Nate Diaz, while most fingers have started pointing to interim UFC lightweight champion Tony Ferguson.

Whatever happens next, the sure bet is that it will be entertaining. "He is going to be defending that belt for a long, long time".

"Though McGregor has kept a relatively low profile since his August 26 loss to Floyd Mayweather in a boxing match, he confirmed last month at an event in Glasgow, Scotland, called 'An Evening with Conor McGregor, ' that he would fight again".

The Dubliner prefers clean knockouts, having won more than 85% of his fights by KO. Whether he's willing to go for a trilogy match is yet to be seen, but it's already a highly anticipated match.

Word is, his opponent may be his ex-sparring partner/former boxing champion Paulie Malignaggi, who got into a verbal war of words with McGregor in the weeks leading up to the Mayweather fight. Malignaggi responded with a threat of his own, telling The MMA Hour "I'm willing to risk fighting him for free just to punch him in the mouth again, again and again". The Brooklyn native retired earlier this year, but he's willing to return in order to put The Notorious in his place.

As the current featherweight champion, Max Holloway would be a safe pick for McGregor to fight next.

"Everything is possible but everybody is targeting Conor McGregor because the money".

The American defeated McGregor in the squared circle via a late stoppage at the T-Mobile Arena, using the Irishman's lack of stamina over the 36-minute distance to his advantage.
