Otherwise I've got many entities and many interests that can carry on also.

McGregor, who last faced Floyd Mayweather Jr.in a boxing match on August 26, revealed Tuesday in an interview with Ireland's entertainment.ie that he has plenty of options available but now is eyeing a UFC return against Tony Ferguson, who defeated Kevin Lee at UFC 216 on October 7 to win the interim UFC lightweight championship.

The film also captures his high-profile switch to boxing this year to fight undefeated star Floyd Mayweather in his professional debut.

"I was promoter on the Mayweather fight, and we're in current negotiations", McGregor said in a public Q&A in Dublin, according to USA Today.

"To my family, my friends, my stable of training partners and coaches, as well as all my celebrity friends attending tonight, we ALL take to the red carpet before the event! I meant no disrespect to nobody, to anybody in the LGBT community".

Tyrod Taylor the big victor in Bills' trade for Kelvin Benjamin
The Buffalo Bills have upgraded their patchwork group of receivers by agreeing to acquire Benjamin in a trade with the Panthers. But remember that Panthers GM Marty Hurney and first-year Buffalo GM Brandon Beane (a former Panthers lifer) are long friends.

"Paulie is talking enough s***, he's stuck for money, and looking for a fight", McGregor said. "But if that little fool is stuck for money, maybe we could get him in for an MMA bout".

With the MMA world focused on this weekend's (Sat., November 4, 2017) UFC 217 from New York City, the hottest topics in the fight game are still when and against whom UFC lightweight champion Conor McGregor will set foot back into the Octagon. "I certainly have a belt to defend and I'm certainly interested in that". He added: "I have history with Nate as it's 1-1".

For that show, McGregor's own company - McGregor Sports and Entertainment - was a co-promoter alongside Mayweather Promotions and he's seeking the same kind of deal with the UFC or he'll move on to other endeavors outside of the Octagon.

"Ronaldo was number one a year ago, I was number 24. with $34m (£25.5m) in revenue", McGregor said at the launch on on Notorious. "It's been like that for a long, long time, I feel, so it's just another day for me". I've pushed so many boundaries.
