Conor McGregor to return to the octagon before any future boxing bouts

Does Conor McGregor want another piece of Floyd Mayweather Jr.?

Mayweather defeated McGregor via TKO in the 10th round of their superfight on August 26 in Las Vegas.

Asked if he would get back in a boxing ring, McGregor replied: "Of course".

Speaking at the launch of his new movie "Notorious", McGregor said "If I had a rematch I would correct it and I would beat him".

Nevertheless, McGregor sees things differently and he might have just started pushing the hype train forward to convince Mayweather to fight him again. I'm gonna leave him to it. If it happens - maybe it will - who knows? That took us by surprise and I got beat.

"No, we haven't spoken. I respect what he has done". I'm never the type of bitter person.

With no intention to call the 40-year-old out of retirement again, McGregor said his sights were on a return to the UFC but wouldn't rule out a return to boxing.

But according to his latest comments, McGregor is ready to return to the sport that made his a household name, and take on the man who now holds the interim lightweight belt: Tony Ferguson, who's already called McGregor out. I will defend my lightweight belt and then boxing is certainly an interesting one, no doubt. There is a fighter with the interim lightweight belt. It's a shame because I don't feel like his UFC record so far has really shown how capable he is. "Maybe, though. Who knows, we'll see".

"The [Nate] Diaz trilogy is also there".

"So, there's so many options". I feel that will be next.

McGregor, promoting the documentary Notorious, added that his camp and that of Tony Ferguson "are now in contract negotiations".

For those who didn't, here's a screen grab of Conor McGregor facing off with what is undoubtedly Tony Ferguson - a shot that only lasts a split second but is a telling one nonetheless.
