Conor McGregor teases Mayweather rematch, casting doubt on UFC return

Conor McGregor recently talked about a rematch with Floyd Mayweather inside the boxing ring.

The Irish MMA star used his Twitter to challenge the boxing icon. He said that Mayweather was carried through their previous bout. Additionally, McGregor even shared an audio clip capturing an unconventional conversation he shared with Mayweather.

Although fans have been awaiting McGregor’s return to the UFC cage since a long time, he doesn’t seem too excited about it. Despite widespread expectations that he would face off against Michael Chandler following the end of TUF reality series, McGregor has remained dismissive of this potential matchup over the course of the last few weeks.

In light of McGregor’s recent Twitter tirade, skepticism is brewing within the fanbase regarding his return to the UFC. In the comment section of his posts, some of his fans have shared their sentiments.

One fan said sarcastically: “Fifth guy he’s said he’s going to fight in 2 weeks now. He’s Dillon Danis now.”

Another fan highlighted the rapid shifts in McGregor’s focus. He wrote: “In the span of a week, Conor went from talking about fighting Gaethje to Nate to Floyd.”

Amidst this skepticism, another fan pleaded: “It’s over. Move on. Please fight MMA for the love of god.”

Supporting this sentiment, a fellow fan chimed in: “Dude, don’t even bother. It’s not rematch-worthy. The numbers will be pitiful.”

Charles Oliveira maintains an optimistic outlook on the possibility of a face-off against Conor McGregor inside the MMA cage. The former UFC lightweight champion conveyed his openness to stepping into the ring with McGregor once he receives the green signal.

In a recent interview with Ariel Helwani on The MMA Hour, Charles Oliveira shared his thoughts on potentially competing against Conor McGregor. He said: “What’s happening is that I am here. I’m just waiting for him. All he needs to do is tell me the place and the time, and I’ll be there… I don’t know. I’m here. Where’s Conor?”
