McGregor made the switch to boxing for the first time in August, losing to Floyd Mayweather via a 10th round knockout.

"What about Pacquiao? Conor, would you fight Pacquiao?" a TMZ reporter asked. The promotion had hoped it could bring McGregor back as early as UFC 219 on December 30 in Las Vegas, but that focus shifted last month to a 2018 return.

Due to the financial success of the fight, however, McGregor's future inside the Octagon has since been unclear.

UFC Lightweight champion Conor McGregor hasn't competed inside the Octagon since brutally knocking out Eddie Alvarez to win the 155-pound title in the main event of UFC 205 in November 2016 in New York City. What's a real fight?

McGregor lost a 10th-round TKO to Floyd Mayweather in a lucrative boxing match in August. Even though he was no match for Mayweather, the man who makes no bones about being in the fight game for the money left Las Vegas with a much beefier bank balance.

According to a new report from Brian Campbell of CBS Sports, Showtime Sports confirmed that there were 4.3 million pay-per-views for the fight. This would be another big money fight for him.

The blockbuster event took in more than over $600m in revenue from ticket sales, sponsorship and global distribution. "He's not that great a boxer, and I think we all saw that".

"I'm Money May. They just called me not too long ago and asked me to come back". I earned their respect and put myself out there.
