Conor McGregor threatens to give Pacquiao a 'volley' in the face after failing to kick Floyd Mayweather's head off
CONOR McGREGOR has ranted that Floyd Mayweather 'deserved a volley to the head' when the pair fought in 2017 – but is 'undecided' as to whether or not to break the rules when he fights against Manny Pacquiao.
The Notorious split fans when he revealed that he'll be making his fighting return in the boxing ring rather than the octagon, facing the Filipino legend in December or January.
After gushing over his pride in landing a clean first blow against Mayweather, McGregor, 32, then admitted that he wishes he'd taken his head off.
He posted on Instagram: "Really I should have just sat right thru that shot and took his head off and f*** the distance.
"If it didn’t work out just give him a good boot into the neck and get DQ’d and fined and who’d give a f***.
"I’m upset I fully followed the rules for that fight to be honest. Floyd deserved a volley at the least. A shoulder even, break the face.
"Manny not so much tho I don’t think, but I will see how the build up goes and wait to hear what bitter old Freddie Roach has to say and then make a decision. My Whiskeys at half a b and climbing I could take a fine."
Just prior to revealing his bout with Pacquiao will take place in the Middle East, McGregor had again expressed his frustration with the UFC at keeping him sidelined during most of 2020, after he'd made a winning start to the year against Donald Cerrone at UFC 246 in January.
He tweeted: "I was pushing hard for the season.
"Multiple opponents, multiple dates offered throughout. All to take place back to back.
"Then when covid hit and the talk was that I would have to wait for crowds again, I walked away from the situation. I was waiting long enough at that stage."
And he has again hit out, calling the decision to 'hold him back' as 'borderline criminal'.
He continued: "I’d rather fight MMA anyway not sure why I’ve been held back like this, it’s borderline criminal at this stage.
"The biggest number generator in the game asking for four fights since February this year and getting left on seen. It’s pretty f***ed up when I keep thinking of it. I’ve been right here this whole time.
"Bob Chapek, do you copy! I repeat, Bob Chapek – Do You Copy!
"Anyways boxing it is for now and I’m up for this! I hope no bottling takes place here. I’m already agreeing to these limited rules and holding back my full array of weapons. Let’s get it going guys.
"Much love, the champ champ".
Mayweather and McGregor's 2017 bout sold 4.3million pay-per-views – making it the second highest-selling fight of all time.
And the Irishman also dominates the UFC's top ten highest PPVs, with his 2018 comeback against Khabib Nurmagomedov the promotion's biggest-selling bout ever.
