Once again, things are heating up between Conor McGregor and Floyd Mayweather. And McGregor has named his price for a proposed boxing match with the retired pound for pound king.
In the wake of McGregor's history making 2nd round knockout of Eddie Alvarez to claim the lightweight title and become the first UFC fighter to hold championships simultaneously in two separate weight classes, the concept of a super fight between the two is picking up steam.
Earlier this week, Mayweather took exception to the McGregor comparisons and called it a form of disrespect when interviewed by TMZ and suggested that McGregor was nothing more than an "ant" to Mayweather's "elephant."
On Tuesday night at 1 OAK in New York, McGregor stopped the party to call out Mayweather from the DJ booth and put a price tag on a showdown with the unbeaten boxer.
"Much respect to Floyd. He's a solid businessman on what he's been able to do, he's a f-cking animal at what he's been able to do. But as far as real fighting... as far as pure unarmed combat...Floyd don't want none of this," McGregor said.
"He wants a boxing match, he doesn't want a fight," McGregor continued. "I want a $100 million cash to fight him under boxing rules because he's afraid of a real fight."
Although the possibility of the two squaring off remains remote, it appears that McGregor is all about putting the pressure on Mayweather to put his money where his mouth is.
