The UFC Lightweight Champion has also been linked to pro wrestling in the past, but the fighter gave a pretty simple answer when asked if there may be a future in sports entertainment.

Conor McGregor taunts Floyd Mayweather during their bout in August.

McGregor said: "I think a true fight is what I want to do next".

"A real fight. MMA next", he added.

Pacquiao earlier said he has opened talks to fight McGregor when he takes a break from his legislative duties in April. Mayweather has been enjoying retirement, while the UFC star has been involved in a number of controversies in recent months. A real fight. Exactly what's a real fight?

"SHOWTIME Sports confirmed today that the SHOWTIME PPV presentation of Mayweather vs. McGregor on August 26, 2017 generated 4.3 million pay-per-view buys in North America".

Showtime said in a statement that global revenues, including ticket sales, sponsorship and worldwide distribution, Mayweather and McGregor had exceeded $600 million.

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".

"If we can negotiate it, I have no problem".

"I'd like to see him come over to our side and have a knock". He fought the returning Mayweather at the junior middleweight limit of 154-pounds and they used 8-ounce gloves. I earned their respect and put myself out there.
