Jose Aldo Explains Why He Turned Down UFC 196 Fight Against Conor McGregor

Conor McGregor is gearing up for his bout with Nate Diaz on March 5 at UFC 196, but The Notorious is always looking for the next "heavyweight" paycheck as he would call it. As such, it's impossible to deny the fact that a dream fight between McGregor and now retired boxing champion Floyd Mayweather would bring both men incomparable amounts of money. Subsequently, it shouldn't come as much of a surprise that the UFC star would be open to discussing a potential bout with Mayweather.

In a recent interview with Gareth Davies of BT Sport, the topic of a potential boxing match between Conor McGregor and Floyd Mayweather was brought up to the UFC megastar. In response, the Irishman said that he would be "open to discussions" regarding a fight with the retired American boxer. However, The Notorious one added that he holds the key to any fight, but his interest was piqued when the notion of the fight being a "billion-dollar fight" was brought up.

Though McGregor, a fighter undoubtedly in his prime right now as he looks to his first MMA bout at welterweight against Diaz at UFC 196, would be willing to discuss the fight, there's obviously no guarantee that Mayweather would say the same. Since his final professional bout that moved his record to a perfect 49-0 back in September, Mayweather has maintained that he's done with fighting. However, with a love for the big payday as strong as McGregor's, a billion-dollar fight might be just the thing to get him to change his tune.

Let's be honest, this is likely just a pipe-dream type of fight that's almost surely not going to come to fruition. However, the prospect of Conor McGregor being open to such a thing only makes him oddly more endearing to his fans and certainly gets a hefty amount of speculation rolling in the best possible way.
