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".
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.
