“That’s the only fight that will get me back in the ring. He’s going to do a job on his side and we are going to do a job on my side and hopefully all the fans in the UK come over and support me. I don’t know (when it will be), I need to communicate with my team, the fight hasn’t been made yet, but it is all about entertainment so hopefully we can make it happen.” Initially Floyd scoffed at the idea when UFC President, Dana White made an official cash offer several weeks ago, but the tide seemingly might have now turned.
McGregor, who has advocated for the fight since day one, is singing a similar tune, also.
“I believe this is the first billion fight. I think it will happen at the end of this year or the start of next year,” McGregor had been linked with a switch to wrestling with an appearance at this years Wrestle Mania, but he refused that offer in recent days to focus on the birth of his first child.
