Conor McGregor: UFC superstar discusses retirement in frank interview

Nate Diaz Conor McGregor

I was never saying I was going to fight in the UFC, I didn't say that.

"I'm sure he won't mind putting in the work if he decides to do something with MMA", Holm told the guys on "TMZ Live".

Mayweather would face a much more hard transition in swapping the ring for the Octagon and that's why not many people took it seriously when he posted a video on Instagram claiming he was considering a "three or four" fight spell in the UFC.

With one quick sentence, Floyd Mayweather shot down any rumors of him shocking the MMA world and joining UFC for a reportedly record-breaking multi-fight contract.

Facebook steps into YouTube with Universal Music Deal
We are excited to bring that to life on Facebook , Instagram, Oculus and Messenger in partnership with UMG", she said today. Of course, Facebook users could previously create videos with copyrighted music and share them to the network.

McGregor ended up losing via a 10th-round stoppage but he earned plenty of plaudits for his first ever professional boxing match, despite the fact Mayweather was the comfortable victor in the end.

The 50-0 fighter, who bested McGregor in a mega-money boxing bout back in August, had been talking about making the switch - with UFC president Dana White even saying they were in talks about "Money" coming in.

Within the last few days news surfaced that negotiations were underway for Mayweather to participate in the UFC in a deal that could see him make over a billion dollars.

We look forward to Mayweather's response!

Stormy Weekend Ahead: Snow Likely Christmas Day
Rain is possible mainly along and south of I-44 with a slight chance as far north as HWY 50 Friday evening and overnight. Christmas Day will be sunny with highs in the 40s! The evening will be mostly cloudy, with a low around 22.

Yet when talk of a rematch with UFC star McGregor surfaced, the ring star reigned himself in and claimed he would only fight for a BILLION dollars. "He usually tips his hand when he's in the media and then that sh-t ends up happening".

CONOR McGREGOR has labelled Floyd Mayweather a p***y after appearing to backtrack on switching to MMA. "Dana told me that Floyd wants to make a deal in the UFC". I didn't say that.

However, to get an MMA fight sanctioned by a commission would prove to be even more hard considering that Mayweather has no experience whatsoever in MMA and would be at a significant disadvantage in the Octagon. "Would and could are different things". That's what I was saying. "And I don't look forward to getting back in a boxing ring, that's what I don't look forward to. That's what I am saying". I never said I was gonna fight in the UFC. "I'm not gonna do it, though".

Feel free to come to your own conclusion about the McGregor post, and whether or not it is about Mayweather, but the timing seems uncanny.
