Conor McGregor Shares Tantalising Update On Social Media – Meltdown Ensues

The respective worlds of MMA and boxing have been going about their business as usual in recent months but ever present, lurking in the shadows, is the long-mooted potential boxing match between Floyd Mayweather and Conor McGregor.

For what seems like forever, the boxing and MMA supremos have been engaged in a will they won’t they narrative that has led fans on a rollercoaster of emotion as they hype builds and then recedes, only to build once more.

In recent weeks it was announced that the UFC lightweight champion had signed papers for the proposed clash with the legendary boxer and things appeared, at last, to be nearing a point where fans could book their tickets to Las Vegas.

However, weeks have passed without public progress and fans have had to sit on their hands and continue their long wait.

Now, just as things have begun to settle once more, the Irishman has sent the MMA Twitterverse into convulsions with four simple words, five if you include his hashtag.

What he is alluding to is anyone’sΒ guess but many are leaning towards the Mayweather clash.

Some, clearly in jest, a hoping for something else.

Others meanwhile are dreaming of MMA fights and title defences.

Having been away of the octagon for eight months, a period that would normally see a descent into obscurity, all it takes is one simple message from McGregor for the spotlight to swing squarely back in his direction.

Love him or loathe him, the Irishman is massive news and whatever he is planning, presumably a fight of some kind, it will be one of, if not the, biggest draws of the year.

Now we wait, again.
