Dear Mr. McGregor. Thank you very much for remembering my name. I’m honored that you would even consider fighting me. 58kg, kickboxing rules would probably get us in the ring sometime in the near future 👍 I will fight my RISE world GP this year so please watch your diet and wait for me! #RISE #Cygames #RIZIN #kickboxing @thenotoriousmma
On New Year’s Eve, Conor hit up Instagram to reference Mayweather’s Tenshin bout payout and also announce he’s expecting a new baby in 2019.
Hours prior, Floyd managed to bank $9 million for a Japan fight.
