The much publicised bout, which also stirred considerable controversy, comes in as the second richest in the history of the sport after generating 4.3 million pay-per-view buys, according to a statement from Showtime sports.

"What about Pacquiao? Conor, would you fight Pacquiao?" a TMZ reporter asked.

By the fourth round Mayweather went on the attack and started landing blow after blow against a suddenly desperate McGregor who was bravely hanging on while clutching and grabbing the American.

Diaz has been chasing a rubber match ever since McGregor avenged his defeat and that fight is certainly the one that the majority of UFC fans want to see most. This would be another big money fight for him.

On December 15, 2017, Conor McGregor told TMZ that he was looking for a "real fight" in MMA, playing down any possibility of working with WWE when asked about a potential move to the professional wrestling giant.

Showtime said in their statement that the fight had exceeded 600 million dollars, including global revenues, including ticket sales, sponsorship and worldwide distribution. The 38-year-old added a photo of the UFC superstar, tagging him with the caption "stay fit my friend" and indicating that a bout between the two would be a "real boxing match" in 2018.

They recorded just 228 total yards of offense, and while they did not turn the ball over, big plays were nowhere to be found. Denver is 5-0 in games in which Anderson has run 20-plus times and has lost all nine other games this season.

"But if you're going to do boxing rules, the boxer's gonna win 99 and a half percent of the time". "I think a true fight is what I want to do next".

It is probably safe to say this one won't happen, especially if this man has anything to say about it...
