Will Conor McGregor fight again after $100m payoff

It's been about a year since Conor McGregor last fought in the UFC, and noone is sure when he will return. The 29-year-old hasn't fought in the UFC since UFC 205 in November 2016. Although officially, McGregor’s return is not yet set, He is expected to face interim titleholder Tony Ferguson (23-3 MMA, 13-1 UFC), who’s No. 2 in the latest USA TODAY Sports/MMAjunkie MMA lightweight rankings, in a title-unifying bout.

Many wondered after the Mayweather fight, if the next logical step for McGregor was the WWE. There was a rumor going around in October centered on McGregor making an appearance in the WrestleMania early next year.

So where was McGregor?

Money changed everything for him, according to UFC President Dana White. "He may never fight again. He has got $100 million in the bank. It's tough to get punched in the face every day when you've got $100 million."

White also questioned if McGregor will ever fight again after his big payday from the Floyd Mayweather fight. McGregor's reportedly made $30 million that was expected to reach $100 million from his share on promotions, making it the most he has been paid for a fight in his career.

However, White said they were working on a fight for McGregor at the end of the year – he was a possibility for UFC 219 on December 30th before his recent Bellator incident – but he's "just not ready."

According to the Adam Hill Review Journals Jose Aldo and Tony Ferguson next in line to the title have both been vocal about wanting the UFC to put pressure on McGregor to either defend his title or vacate because it’s been almost two years since he knocked Aldo out for the featherweight championship.

Regardless of what happens, there's no doubt McGregor has plenty of options if he wants to continue fighting in some capacity or not.
