In the background to everything that went on in the build up to the fight was the subplot of a growing rivalry with retired boxer Paulie Malignaggi who agreed to spar with McGregor.

Since then he seems to have devoted most of his time to slamming McGregor on Twitter.

Due to unhappiness with how he was been treated, essentially.

Malignaggi will have to wait in line, as McGregor's next fight is almost certain to be a lightweight title defence against Tony Ferguson. And we'll see what happens.

Although Conor McGregor came to prominence for his dominant performances in the UFC, he recently turned his hand to boxing, where he was stopped in the 10th round by Floyd Mayweather.

"You just can't let him hit you like that, but I think because of the way Tony fights, he kinda hangs his chin up there".

John Kavanagh and Owen Roddy, McGregor's coaches, are pushing for their man to see out a trilogy against Diaz but White calls all talk of an agreement being neared as 'internet bullshit'. That's why. I don't think, if I fight versus Tony Ferguson, this is an interim belt.

Who knows.maybe the sporting world will finally see this drama unfold in the boxing ring sometime in 2018.

In the age of the "money fight," it's tough to avoid the possibility of a showdown between cash cow Conor McGregor and former pay-per-view king Georges St-Pierre. "If I beat Tony Ferguson and take the interim championship belt — Conor's the official champion, but he's not the people's champion". However a video of the Irishman knocking the American down was leaked and incensed the boxer.

"Trying to come back, training every day - every day, training full-time - this is not easy", he explained.

There are two potential fights awaiting McGregor in the octagon. "I mean, if you look at Conor McGregor at 145, 155 and 170 [pounds], everything is intriguing".

"This is my dream fight", Nurmagomedov said. Malignaggi is represented by powerful boxing manager Al Haymon, who according to Malignaggi has reached out to UFC President Dana White.
