Floyd Mayweather Jr v Conor Mcgregor in the octagon stepped that bit closer today when he confirmed plans to apply for an MMA license. The undefeated American boxer beat the Irishman in the boxing bout back in August 2017 and he confirmed plans are afoot to step into the octagon to take on McGregor on his terms. Mayweather won handily in their boxing bout via a technical knockout in the 10th round before retiring from the sport once more.
Another mega-money bout with UFC’s biggest name is now set to be the talk of the town again after Mayweathers latest comments.
‘Everything takes time. Eventually, we’re gonna apply for the license, and hopefully we can fight,’ Mayweather said.
‘Even if it takes 6 to 8 months — whatever it takes,’ he added.
‘We want to make sure that everything is done correctly, and everything is done the right way.”
The hype will grow and grow, but the fans of both will have to wait as the Irishman will return to the octagon against either Tony Ferguson or Khabib Nurmagomedov before a bout with the 41-yar-old.
