UFC 246 featured the octagon return of former two-division champion, Conor McGregor against Donald Cerrone. Conor spectacularly finished the fight in a mere 40 seconds. And then came the moment the fans had been eagerly waiting for. There were some intriguing matchups ahead of Conor McGregor in both lightweight and welterweight division. The rematch with Khabib Nurmagomedov, the trilogy fight with Nate Diaz, or a violent showdown with Justin Gaethje.
However, the fan wanted Conor to call out the BMF, Jorge Masvidal. After Jorge Masvidal dominated Nate Diaz to win the BMF title, Conor showed interest in the BMF title. Both fans and Masvidal were excited about this possibility. After campaigning for this fight leading up to UFC 246, Masvidal showed up in the arena for Conor vs Cowboy. Masvidal was in a Versace robe that was similar to the one Conor showed up during his open workout for Mayweather fight.
However, Conor did not call out Masvidal in his in-ring interview and later he made fun of Masvidal's robe saying: "It was ridiculous. I don't know. That's a bit weird. I don't give a f**k.

Recently Masvidal was asked about Conor's response and the BMF came back with a befitting response. Masvidal said: "This grandma whoop his ass with the robe on" Jorge Masvidal on Potential Conor McGregor Fight Talking about the potential fight with Conor, Masvidal said that he does not want to wait around for Conor. He is well aware that Conor is waiting for the outcome of Khabib Nurmagomedov vs Tony Ferguson. However, Masvidal is open to fighting Conor at the end of this year or maybe next year. For now, Jorge Masvidal is likely to fight Kamaru Usman for the UFC welterweight title. According to Dana White, this fight might happen in July. If Masvidal wins the welterweight title then Conor is very likely to come after the welterweight title. But at the moment, Conor is focused on Khabib Nurmagomedov as informed by Dana White. World Boxing News Floyd Mayweather has done something out of the ordinary this week after agreeing to an unusual and candid sit-down interview which lasted over two hours long. Speaking to N.O.R.E on his Drink Champs Show broadcast at Revolt TV, Mayweather discussed all things about his career. The episode is set to air Thursday and sees Mayweather lighting a blunt for the co-presenter as they chatted on all subjects. Mayweather was as confident as ever as the five-weight world title-holder looks comfortable as he went through the motions. Revolt TV is putting together a host of top-name specials to celebrate Black History Month and Mayweather is just one of the superstars they grabbed for an exclusive. Snippets have since been shared ahead of the premiere, which looks set to go down a storm. At one point, Mayweather even lit N.O.R.E's blunt and encouraged him to sip his drink as they spoke. One topic covered was his 2017 record-breaking battle with Conor McGregor. Mayweather beat down the ex-UFC champion in ten rounds at the MGM Grand. The first massive cross-codes event of it's kind to smash barriers, Mayweather eased to victory without breaking a sweat. Addressing the bout, Mayweather reiterated he didn't really train in a startling admission. "For the Conor McGregor (super-fight), I didn't really train," Mayweather told Drink Champs. "All I did was do pushups and situps. That's all I did. Pushups and situps, box a few times, hit the bag a few times. Because, actually, the training camp was in different places. "I would do a training camp in Vegas a few days. Sometimes I wouldn't go to the gym for a week. "I took it serious. Like I said before, I wanted to have some fun in the fight. I wanted to entertain the people." DANGERS On what dangers McGregor may have posed to him that night, Mayweather added: "My thing is this. I don't have to watch any footage of a fighter because I'm Floyd Mayweather. Everybody's got to watch me." The soon-to-be 43-year-old is currently involved in talks for McGregor's next fight, which could be against his own fighter Manny Pacquiao. McGregor moved a step closer to another hefty payday this week when Pacquiao signed terms with the same management company. An official announcement on what's going down between Mayweather, McGregor and Pacquiao is expected soon.
