Floyd Mayweather faces second battle for Australian entry

Mike Tyson

Irishman and McGregor fan O'Carroll dismissed this notion, however.

Mayweather stopped McGregor in the 10th round, the first time he has had a real stoppage in almost a decade. Not only are they two of the better pound-for-pound boxers in the world, but they've also built their careers by using crowd-pleasing styles in the ring. His ability to promote a fight is second-to-none, and Jericho believes this makes him a flawless fit for the WWE, whenever he decides he's ready.

It may be little surprise that the mixed martial arts (MMA) fighter has warm feelings for the boxer who helped him earn a minimum of US$30 million (S$41 million) from their bout, but the build-up had been stormy with the two exchanging unpalatable slurs. He knew from the start he wasn't going to be troubled.

Although McGregor has alluded to creating a hybrid sport of his own for fighters, he has made more substantial requests for shares in the UFC.

"I went one way and thinking maybe he didn't see me the first time I tried again to ask but he just turned his back on both occasions". He fought seven times on Showtime PPV, including the McGregor fight, and posted the three of the four largest pay-per-view numbers in history, as well as the three largest-grossing fights in history.

"I thought it was a fraud", De La Hoya said on ESPN's First Take.

Conversely, Manny has declined dramatically over his last few fights and couldn't even dominate an inexperienced fighter like Jeff Horn who only had 16 pro bouts prior to their fight. You're not getting him for the $200,000 you were paying him a year.

"The resilience and scalability of OpenBet allows us to smash previous records with confidence and we continuously offer our customers a great experience 24x7 when it matters most". Following his 10 round loss to Floyd Mayweather on August 26th. McGregor retained his pride with a respectable performance, and Mayweather retired with 50-0 record. In a recent interview with Sports Illustrated, former WWE champion Chris Jericho said that it is a "no-brainer" that McGregor will one day end up in the WWE in some capacity.

Conor McGregor has expressed an interest in fighting in the UFC this year. "I think people got an entertaining 10 round fight, it ended up where the educated person would imagine that it'd end up, but I think it was entertaining and it delivered on a lot of levels".
