We may be a little closer to having our Conor McGregor/Floyd Mayweather fight, or we may not. Who knows. At this point, I don’t think even McGregor and Mayweather know, as bean counters and lawyers take over when hundreds of millions of dollars are at stake.

But despite this lack of real news, McGregor is still stoking the flames.

As per the Instagram post below, McGregor is planting the seeds of what could happen if Mayweather does not sign on the dotted line (hint: he’ll fight Manny Pacquiao instead).

If this fight happens, it will be the biggest thing to ever happen in combat sports. Until then, though… ugh.

Here is a reply video I sent one of my protégés who was seeking advice on some boxing only pad work footage they sent me. I believe you will like it. The focus has been solely boxing lately but make no mistakes, the kicking and grappling aspects, and everything else got to do with unlimited free fighting, is still very much present in my thoughts. Floyd may crap his jocks after all and if so I will go back to true fighting or just pick another boxer like manny or something. But whatever that’s another conversation. I like to build fighters and watch their progression. I have built many to this date, and all unintentionally. One is fighting in the UFC main event this weekend. When my son is born I will build him up into a multiple free fighting world champion also. Just like his old man. I look forward to it.
