Former UFC Star Conor McGregor Says He'll Face Manny Pacquiao in Boxing Match

Retired UFC star Conor McGregor dropped a bombshell Friday on Twitter in the form of a potential boxing match with Manny Pacquiao.

McGregor didn't provide a date but wrote that he is "boxing Manny Pacquiao next in the Middle East."

The Irishman made the declaration after tweeting screenshots of a DM conversation he had with UFC President Dana White in February:

White was trying to get McGregor to be on standby for UFC 249 in the event that either Khabib Nurmagomedov or Tony Ferguson had to pull out, but McGregor wanted a pay-per-view focused on him in Los Angeles in May instead.

UFC 249 was moved from April to May because of the COVID-19 pandemic, and Justin Gaethje replaced Khabib since Nurmagomedov was unable to leave Russia during the pandemic.
