Here is why Colin thinks McGregor vs Floyd Mayweather will happen - 'The Herd'

Conor McGregor continues to be a major talking point within mixed martial arts even though he's been pulled from UFC 200. ESPN announced that McGregor would appear in the 2016 edition of "The Body Issue", an annual collection of photographs featuring semi-nude or nude athletes. ESPN revealed the news via Twitter.

McGregor is the sixth mixed martial arts personality to appear in the magazine. Ronda Rousey, Miesha Tate, Jon Jones, Cristiane Justino and Cyborg Santos were featured in past editions of the magazine. Rousey is the only MMA competitor to make the cover of the magazine.

McGregor's name continues to be involved with a variety of stories in combat sports. On one hand, the UFC is continuing to plan his rematch against Nate Diaz which was removed from UFC 200. While the plan is to have them rematch their UFC 196 bout, the fight has yet to be officially made. There's also the back and forth between McGregor and Floyd Mayweather, as both men use sports media channels to jockey for a fight, even though McGregor is contractually bound to the UFC.
