McGregor: Mayweather Going Through Money Fast - Rematch Will Happen

UFC superstar Conor McGregor has given his take on Floyd Mayweather's teaser for their rematch.

McGregor returned to the cage in spectacular fashion on Saturday night at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas.

The 31-year-old demolished veteran Donald 'Cowboy' Cerrone in only 40 seconds of the first round. He busted his nose with shoulder strikes, then rocked him bad with a head kick, and then closed the show by battering him with numerous punches to force the stoppage.

After the fight was over, Mayweather took to social media to post a mock event poster which teased a potential rematch in 2020.

“He forgot ‘McGregor Sports and Entertainment’ on the poster,” McGregor said.

“That right there cuts him out, so it’s me and Manny [Pacquiao]. Let’s see what happens. That Floyd, he’s a funny man, that Floyd. We’ll see what happens. The discussions are always ongoing. They never stop. You know Floyd is going through money fast. He’s far from retired, and that rematch will happen at some stage.”

UFC President Dana White advised several reporters that Mayweather has already reached out to him via private messages on social media, but he would not reveal the specifics of what was said.

Mayweather stopped McGregor in the tenth round when the UFC superstar made his professional boxing debut in August 2017. Their pay-per-view bout generated over 4 million buys - making it the second most successful combat sports pay-per-view in history.

White would like to stage a rematch between McGregor and undefeated lightweight champion Khabib Nurmagomedov. Nurmagomedov has to beat Tony Ferguson in April, and McGregor is not really interested in waiting for anyone. 

“I don’t think the ‘who’ matters,” McGregor said.

“The who doesn’t matter for me now. I’m looking at dates now. I know March was there. I’m going to have a look at a calendar and see where we’re at … I’ll be ready. I’ll have a celebration tonight. I’ll chill with my kids tomorrow. I’ll show [my son] Junior the fight on the telly and see how he reacts. I’ll see what he thinks of it. Then back to training.”

[QUOTE=BoomBapTrap;20342236]What? Do you understand the concept of budgeting?? He can be pulling 30M a year, but if he has 29M overhead to cover, thT only leaves him with 1M. Simple. He’s been retired since the Mcgregor fight, which means these…
