Conor McGregor, the UFC star, is reportedly looking to take on bare-knuckle boxing, following his appearance on the ring during BKFC 41 in Broomfield, Colo., last Friday, where he confronted Mike Perry after his brutal TKO victory over Luke Rockhold. McGregor has commented on his appearance, where he seemed positive about competing in bare-knuckle boxing, even against Perry.
McGregor, who has fought in the boxing ring with Floyd Mayweather while under UFC contract, is currently signed up for a fight with Michael Chandler in the UFC, which is yet to be confirmed following the conclusion of The Ultimate Fighter 31.
Although it appears unlikely that McGregor would take on Perry anytime soon, or ever at all, it is clear that he remains interested in boxing, including bare-knuckle boxing, and could pursue it in the future. Fighting is a new experience every day, with each fight different from the last, which is why McGregor enjoys and respects it so much.
