Floyd Mayweather is arguably one of the biggest names in boxing. If you had to look for another with a similar stature in UFC, it would be none other than Conor McGregor. Mayweather vs McGregor, ‘the money fight’ was an interesting match between the two in August 2017. However, Conor McGregor vs Floyd Mayweather II might just happen in 2019.
However, interestingly, in 2019 – this won’t happen inside a boxing ring, but possibly within the UFC Octagon. Here’s a closer look:
McGregor vs Mayweather in the UFC?
Conor McGregor’s first boxing match was Mayweather’s final boxing match. McGregor vs Mayweather went for 10 rounds before ‘the money’ defeated McGregor. However, Mayweather, who recorded his 50th straight win in this match, said that he had officially retired and there’s going to be no more boxing after this.
Interestingly, this is why McGregor vs Mayweather II might not be a boxing match at all! It might happen inside the Octagon, in the UFC! Dana White has enough money and influence to make this happen: and this would arguably be the biggest UFC match ever, if it happens.
Why 2019 is the last opportunity for McGregor vs Mayweather II
Moreover, 2019 is perhaps the last opportunity for a McGregor vs Mayweather rematch to happen. This is because Mayweather is now 40 and has been inactive from boxing for some time now. He’s now an entrepreneur with various ventures thriving. Hence, this is the last chance for McGregor vs Mayweather II to happen.
