The combat sports world has been rocked by the late rumors of a potential bout between Conor McGregor and Manny Pacquiao, but ‘The Notorious’ doesn’t seem too interested in the match-up.
He’s the multi-million dollar madman at the at the top of the combat sports world. After ripping two titles out of the hands of UFC champions and making history, he walked away from MMA on paternity leave.
But you’re still probably wondering just what comes next for him, given there are a few options on the table – and given McGregor has kept things probably intentionally ambiguous.

McGregor completely shut down those rumors by claiming that he wants his next bout to be a ‘true fight’ in MMA. Conor McGregor said to TMZ.
“We’ll see what happens. I think a true fight is what I want to do next. A real fight. Exactly, what’s a real fight? MMA next. F-ck WWE.”
McGregor hasn’t been in action since an August TKO loss to Floyd Mayweather in a multi-million boxing match in Las Vegas. That fight did 4.3 million pay-per-view buys, making it the second biggest fight in history.
But if this “true fight” is what he indeed wants next, the MMA world may be waiting for interim lightweight champ Tony Ferguson to heal from recent elbow surgery for a title unification fight.
Not to mention Nate Diaz pacing around waiting for a fight that will give him the payday he wants, which only one man can grant.
After shutting down boxing rumors, what do you guys think who will be his opponent for his real fight?
