While the UFC lightweight division remains in limbo, champion Conor McGregor has been fielding multiple challenges from the boxing world.

What!? After Manny Pacquiao trolled Conor McGregor via social media on Thanksgiving, sources are saying talks for a fight have begun.

Speaking to AFP about the possibility of meeting McGregor in the ring, Pacquiao said: "If we can negotiate it, I have no problem. It is okay with both of us". "It is OK with both of us", Pacquiao stated when asked about the talks that he was looking for a match with McGregor. Stay fit my friend.

Ariel Helwani confirmed that that a potential fight between Diaz and Woodley was being discussed by UFC officials.

The boxer-turned-senator said he could also have a rematch with Horn or a fight with 29-year-old American Keith Thurman who holds the WBA Super welterweight title and the WBC welterweight title. He lost in 10 rounds.

Purists slammed the bout, which ended with Mayweather's first stoppage in six years, and it was suggested that "The Notorious" would return to the UFC with an 0-1 boxing record but $100 million richer. Their last meeting was at UFC 202 in August 2016, with McGregor winning by majority decision. He's teased possible match-ups, though.

Pacquiao on the other hand lost his last match against Australian Jeff Horn in the WBO welterweight world title fight.

Understandably torn between avenging a loss and claiming one of the most lucrative paydays of his entire career, Pacquiao wants to return to the ring before next summer.

"It depends who they can finalize as my opponent by April", Pacquiao said.
