A prerequisite for making a big fight happen down the road is winning the big fight right in front of you, wouldn't you think? That doesn't seem to apply to McGregor, though.
His tap-out loss to Nate Diaz in was humbling but did not dim his star power by even a single lumen. So even if he were to lose to Nurmagomedov, he would retain the wattage to call his shots and draw a crowd.
A loss at UFC might make a second boxing detour less likely, however, because of McGregor's own nature. Just as he would accept no fight other than a Diaz rematch in the aftermath of that defeat, he surely would focus all of his being on getting back inside a cage with Nurmagomedov if need be.
If McGregor wins on Oct. But where would he go from there within MMA? Would he finally defend a belt? Would he go after a third divisional crown, bulking up to challenge the winner of next weekend's welterweight title bout between Tyron Woodley and Darren Till?
Or would McGregor follow the "Money" once again? The decision would seem to be all his, as long as he sets aside the majority of the cash for Mayweather and the UFC gets a taste as well.
Actually, WWE is probably the most appropriate venue for this squash match. Mayweather has a bit of pro wrestling experience, and McGregor has at least the microphone chops to hang with the best in the squared circle.
Oh, all right, we'll stick to the two fighters' chosen sports and sort this out logically. One man is a boxer and the other a mixed martial artist, and their first meeting took place in a boxing ring.
During the hype tour leading up to that fight, Mayweather boasted to McGregor, "I'll whoop your ass in the Octagon. Therefore, if a rematch does come to fruition, it most definitely would take place in I mean, c'mon, Mayweather in an MMA cage?
If Floyd is itching to venture beyond his comfort zone, he might want to first consult with James Toney. The where part is easy. Mayweather fought the last 15 fights of his career in his adopted hometown of Vegas.
He ain't going nowhere. As for the when, Floyd has all the time in the world on his hands. He'd just have to fit this side job into a retiree's schedule of sitting on a park bench feeding pigeons and playing keno at the corner store.
McGregor, on the other hand, would have some decisions to make. Would he feel the urgency to strike while the iron is hot, rather than risk Mayweather later having second thoughts about a second return from retirement?
McGregor doesn't seem like the sit-and-wait type, so he's going to need a good reason to stick around in the Octagon. A good green reason, that is.
If he can get a succession of money fights in the cage, he might not keep chasing Mayweather. But no MMA payday is going to come close to matching the take from that preposterous boxing rematch, so the decision comes down to whether legacy-building is important enough to him that he'd settle for a significantly smaller pile of green paper.
