McGregor, 28, became first the first two-class champion in the promotion's history with a knockout victory against Eddie Alvarez in NY.

While McGregor's time at the summit of UFC may not have outlasted Money's dominance in boxing, the Irishman made history when he stopped Alvarez in the second round of their showdown at Madison Square Garden on Saturday. Floyd Mayweather has this to say, "I didn't know Conor McGregor was undefeated. Have you ever made $70 million in one night?"

Conor McGregor's war of words with boxing champion Floyd Mayweather reached the price tag stage Tuesday night as the UFC kingpin said he would fight Mayweather under boxing rules for $100 million. That's total disrespect. I'm an elephant.

'Once again, I'm an elephant.

Earlier this week, Mayweather responded to an interviewer's question of whether he had seen McGregor's recent championship-winning TKO of UFC lightweight Eddie Alvarez by comparing McGregor to an ant. Elephants don't beef with ants. "That's something I didn't know, so you're telling me something new".

Since May, rumors about a possible boxing super fight between Floyd Mayweather and Conor McGregor surfaced.

The barriers to overcome to bring such a fight to fruition are overwhelmingly great in number, though, and the topic has fizzled has McGregor has put his focus back on MMA.

Still, on the house mic, McGregor continued, "Much respect to Floyd". Tell him to run around Showtime offices. He goes on to say that he is a living legend, dedicating years of blood, sweat and tears to the sport. But as far as real fighting, as far as true real unarmed combat, Floyd doesn't want any of this.

McGregor and Mayweather have hit the mainstream since UFC 205, as even FOX Sports 1 sports shows are discussing a potential bout.

After all was said and done, no negotiations took place, and no fight came to fruition.

"You know how Floyd knocks people out? He doesn't want a fight", McGregor told the crowd. Although Mayweather has never been beaten in a boxing match, there are some who believe that McGregor wouldn't be embarrassed in a 12-round fight.
