Conor McGregor is reportedly considering bare-knuckle boxing after his recent appearance at BKFC 41 in Broomfield, Colo. During the event, the UFC star entered the ring to confront Mike Perry following Perry’s TKO victory over former UFC middleweight champion Luke Rockhold.
McGregor expressed his excitement about the idea of competing in bare-knuckle boxing and even mentioned the possibility of fighting against Perry in the same discipline.

McGregor mentioned another fight in his Instagram post. It was the co-main event between Eddie Alvarez and Chad Mendes, where Alvarez won a split decision over his fellow former UFC fighter. McGregor had defeated Mendes to claim his first UFC title, an interim featherweight belt. Later, he defeated Alvarez for the lightweight title and became a two-division champion.
Call me “slicey” bare paw. Styles make fights. As well as rulesets. As well as everything. If you are scared go to church. I was called into the bare knuckle ring last night. I fear nothing. No man that breathes air. I only fear God and abide by God and if God guides me to a professional bare knuckle fight in my time for my new world title, I do.
Great night last night.
It’s real interesting out there for sure. Congrats to the fighters. Two of my old foes competed in a barn buster and a guy who Cowboy submitted in a round is now the man in this sport beating a former middle weight world champion. Incredible. Think about that for a second. Understand that as fans what fighting is. Take note of it. What fighting is, is a new day every day. Every fight with every person on every given day. Is different. It’s why I love it so much. It’s why I respect it so much. Fighting is different. End of. This fight took place in the 185lb division. I’ve not fought at that weight before but I can get there nicely as a refrigerator freezer. For sure. Who knows but God and I trust God, Mcgregor wrote
If you thought McGregor was done with cross-discipline fights after his bout with Mayweather, think again! The notorious UFC star is considering taking on bare-knuckle boxing, and it wouldn’t be the first time he’s tried his hand at a new combat sport. McGregor, still under contract with the UFC, took on Mayweather back in August 2017 at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas. And let’s just say, it ended up being one of the biggest pay-per-views in the history of combat sports!
Presently, McGregor is preparing for a UFC fight against Michael Chandler, but the date is yet to be finalized following the completion of The Ultimate Fighter 31, which features them as opposing coaches. Although a confrontation between McGregor and Perry seems unlikely in the near future, he isn’t entirely dismissing the idea.
