Despite his technical knockout loss to Mayweather in his boxing debut, McGregor had shown that he was capable of challenging "the best boxers in the world", Gibbons said. "It's just something that you don't do".

He now has a 62-7 record, with two draws, while McGregor's last fight - a win over Donald Cerrone at UFC 246 in January - gave him a 22-4 record in mixed martial arts. And Diego Sanchez was in there in this private conversation that I was having with Conor McGregor.

Conor McGregor has revealed he is still interested in coming out of retirement for a UFC return against veteran Diego Sanchez, as talk of a boxing clash with Manny Pacquiao intensifies.

McGregor's boxing match came in 2017 when he faced Floyd Mayweather in a fight billed 'The Biggest Fight in Combat Sports History'.

"When you are the No.2 or 3 ranked guy in the world, and you are telling me that you want to fight, but you want to fight unranked 39-year-old Diego Sanchez in a main event at Los Angeles." .

McGregor told White he wants to fight Diego Sanchez but it is something the 51-year-old could not get his head around.

Pacquiao's camp said on Saturday that a deal was being finalized for a bout with McGregor, and would partly be in aid of Covid-19 victims.

"For the sake of all the Filipino Covid-19 victims, Senator Manny Pacquiao will be fighting UFC superstar Conor McGregor next year", Pacquiao's special assistant Jayke Joson said, adding negotiations are ongoing.

Pacquiao's fitness coach Justin Fortune warned earlier this year that his man would "obliterate" McGregor if they meet in the ring.

He famously fought Mayweather in the summer of 2017, being stopped in the 10th round by the United States legend.

Pacquiao, now a Senator in his native Philippines, last fought in 2019 when he won the WBA Super Welterweight title with a victory over American Keith Thurmann. Hours later, McGregor, 32, said that it is White who broke a code first and accused the UFC president of lying.
