Conor McGregor has revealed plans for his next lucrative defeat to be against Filipino fighting legend Manny Pacquiao.
The Notorious one semi-retired from UFC in 2017 to pursue a succession of well-paid beatings.
His latest profitable pummelling will be at the hands of another man eager to tarnish his legacy by engaging in a series of Rocky Balboa Vs Thunderlips-type matches, Manny Pacquiao.
Discussing the exhibition bout with Paddy Power News, the 32-year-old former featherweight and lightweight champion said:
‘Rolex watches, Rolls Royces, paint-stripping whiskey I can hawk to yanks – all these things don’t come for free baby’.
‘I’ll take them all on, Pacquiao, Tyson, M Bison, Shao Kahn. No opponent is too big, no purse is too big’.
The news comes as a huge blow to UFC fans who’d hoped to see McGregor’s next pasting take place inside the Octagon.
Voicing his displeasure to his 32 followers on Twitter, die-hard MMA fan Matt Striker wrote:
‘I’m so p*ssed at Conor for disrespecting the sport once again’.
‘That being said, I will absolutely be paying the $100 pay-per-view providers will be charging to watch this fight’.
‘Whether I remain conscious long enough to see it at 5am is another matter entirely’.
Meanwhile, Pacquiao has expressed his relief now that a fight with McGregor looks to finally be agreed.
‘I am delighted Conor has finally relented to my incessant flattery and will let me knock his b*llocks in for a huge sum of money’, the Senator of the Philippines said.
‘There were times I thought this fight might never happen. Sometimes I wondered if I’d be the last old man on the planet he’d take a swing at’.
In related news, veteran blow-by-blow announcer Jim Lampley is relishing the prospect of a McGregor Vs Pacquiao showdown.
‘This could be the second greatest staged fight between a wise-ass Irishman and a politician the world of sport has seen since Donald Trump clotheslined Vince McMahon at Wrestlemania XXIII’, said Lampley.
