Now that UFC 205 is out of the way, with Conor McGregor defeating Eddie Alvarez in the second round and becoming a double champion, all eyes have turned on what is next for Notorious.

After the impressive performance in the octagon, that saw the Irishman knock out the American with a special four-punch combo, McGregor confirmed in his press conference that his partner is expecting their first child, which could take up the majority of his time over the next few months.

However, his career is far from over, and with him holding both the featherweight and lightweight championship belts, one of them will have to be surrendered.

McGregor is known for making enemies in the UFC, and he will have plenty of fighters ready to share the octagon with him, but his next big fight might not take place inside the cage.

It's been well documented that McGregor has ongoing conflict with boxing legend Floyd Mayweather, and with all the talk surrounding the two facing each other in the future, it's something that is getting the fighting world excited.

Mayweather hit out at Notorious earlier this week, claiming that comparisons between the two are disrespectful, whilst the Irishman retaliated by urging the boxer to say it to his face.

However, the UFC star has now revealed what it would take for him to collide with Mayweather in a professional bout.

There's been a lot of talk about what the fight would be like. Whether it would be UFC style or boxing style, and McGregor has revealed what his demands are for the fight to take place.

He said: "He wants it under boxing rules. He wants a boxing match. He doesn't want a fight.

"Tell Floyd and Showtime, I'm coming. Tell him to go to them Showtime offices. I want $100 million cash to fight you under boxing rules cause he's afraid of a real fight.

"Floyd's not ready for this. Much respect to Floyd, he's a solid businessman. What he has been able to do, he's a (expletive) animal at what he's been able to do but as far as real fighting, as far as true, pure unarmed combat — Floyd don't want none of this," McGregor said.

"He does not want none of this."
