Conor McGregor posted a boxing video, should Floyd Mayweather be anxious?

I don't know this guy, I can't talk about what he does, because nobody knows. "I think UFC has to make plans a little bit, because this chicken is not loyal".

At the moment, Khabib Nurmagomedov says he doesn't care.

He was critical of McGregor's attempt at a boxing match with Floyd Mayweather, saying it was disrespectful to the UFC, which turned him into the star he is.

With Mayweather setting his number at $100 million in order for him to come out of retirement, he claims to have set up an offer that would guarantee himself $100 million while McGregor would take home a guaranteed $15 million and they would split percentages of pay-per-view. The Dubliner ended up knocking out Eddie Alvarez at UFC 205 and walked out of Madison Square Garden with the featherweight title on one shoulder and the lightweight belt on the other.

Do you see Khabib Nurmagomedov getting his hand raised over Tony Ferguson and then taking on Conor McGregor for the undisputed UFC lightweight title? And that's why I don't think about this.

"I think I beat Tony Ferguson and after Conor (will) say he don't want to defend his title because he never defends his title and I'll fight with another top contender".

McGregor has his sights set on a Mayweather fight, though, that he believes will generate $1 billion.

Because this is 2017 and it's the UFC we're talking about, all conversations must, by law, turn to McGregor and his future plans.

In the eyes of many pundits and fans, Nurmagomedov represents the most risky challenge to McGregor of any fighter in the 155-pound division. Nurmagomedov fought Michael Johnson that night instead. "I don't know what happens after this fight (with Ferguson)". Plus, McGregor never has defended any of the four titles he has won, two in the UFC and two with Cage Warriors. It may just be another day of training, but make no mistake about it, Conor McGregor takes his social media posts very seriously. He also feels a properly marketed McGregor fight at 170lbs would rake in between 1.5 and 2m PPV buys.

Now, Rogan said on The Joe Rogan Experience that he thinks there are only a few fights that would bring the outspoken superstar back into the company's fold.
