UFC superstar Conor McGregor returned to the cage in spectacular fashion on Saturday night at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas.
The 31-year-old demolished veteran Donald ‘Cowboy’ Cerrone in only 40 seconds of the first round. He busted his nose with shoulder strikes, then rocked him bad with a head kick, and then closed the show by battering him with numerous punches to force the stoppage.
After the fight was over, five division world champion Floyd Mayweather took to social media to post a mock event poster which teased a potential rematch in 2020.
UFC President Dana White advised several reporters that Mayweather has already reached out to him via private messages on social media, but he would not reveal the specifics of what was said.
Earlier this week, McGregor made it clear that he wanted to return to the sport of boxing and one of his goals was to secure a rematch with Mayweather.
Mayweather stopped McGregor in the tenth round when the UFC superstar made his professional boxing debut in August 2017. Their pay-per-view bout generated over 4 million buys – making it the second most successful combat sports pay-per-view in history.
