Still, McGregor's absence from the Octagon, Mayweather's possible interest in a return and fans' enduring appetite for this pairing will keep it a must-watch story.
There had been rumours that the pair would have a big money rematch following their August boxing match, in which Mayweather comfortably defeated McGregor via 10th round TKO.

Even if the unthinkable happened and a deal was made which would bring the Mayweather vs. McGregor bout into the cage, where would this leave the Irishman? The fight was notable since McGregor basically had to drop what he knew about MMA and train fast for boxing in order to fight against Mayweather.
Whether McGregor is safisfied with that situation and happy to fight against either of his rivals in a defence of the belt for them, remains to be seen.

April's lightweight mega-clash between Tony Ferguson and Khabib Nurmagomedov just might decide the champion of the division in his absence.
