Mayweather called time on his career after beating McGregor, but he's set to return to action after striking a deal with UFC president Dana White.

Ahead of his comeback fight against the unsafe Donald "Cowboy" Cerrone, Conor McGregor is already setting up his next foray into the realm of boxing.

Donald Cerrone is a unsafe striker, but in his UFC 246 fight with Conor McGregor, many fans believe he'll be outmatched in that department. When we rematch. It's not going to be a mixed martial arts bout like he said.

'I was phenomenal in that bout, the only reason I lost was because I prepared for a back-footed Philly Shell style of opponent.

"I know who I am, I look in the mirror and I know exactly who I am so I get to go and make the decision", Cerrone concluded.

Pressed further on his preparation, the 31-year-old added: "I had people holed up in a hotel and I would ring and arrange a fight, they would come to the gym and have a full-blown fight with no headguards. I think we should rematch Floyd", McGregor told Ariel Helwani's MMA Show. I know I would beat him if we rematch, when we rematch. "But that's not going to happen and I'm not even going to push him on it".

McGregor, on the other hand, is 21-4 overall. There's been talks about a Manny fight as well. Not yet [but it's a possibility] very much so.

What gameplan do you think Donald Cerrone should employ at UFC 246?

"And the Paulie [Malignaggi] fight". That kept happening, I wouldn't want to be there, then I'd have to scrap, and then off I'd go again.
