BREAKING | Conor McGregor closes the door on Floyd Mayweather rematch talk

Conor McGregor

Over the last few weeks, there has been ceaseless buzz surrounding an MMA rematch between current UFC lightweight champion Conor McGregor and undefeated boxer Floyd Mayweather – be it in the cage or the ring.

From the sounds of it, however, both men are keen to put an end to this rematch talk.

Mayweather was first to suggest this rematch was a no-go, reminding MMA reporter Mike Bohn that he’s already fought (and beaten) McGregor.

Now, McGregor has responded, claiming he’s happy to see Mayweather putting an end to this rematch talk.

“I am happy for Floyd and his recent announcement that he is out of these current fight negotiations,” McGregor said in his post. “It is the reason I never seeked the rematch in the first place. I was happy for him in retirement. My game is a very unforgiving one. It is not like other games. I understand completely him staying retired. I will now carry on in my negotiations and see where it goes. Have a great retirement Junior. Now come here and give your old man a hug for old times sake. I’m proud of you son. Yours truly, Senior.”

Do you think this will really be the end of the rematch talk between Conor McGregor and Floyd Mayweather?
