"I think a true fight is what I want to do next," McGregor says in the video posted online Saturday. "MMA next." Ireland's McGregor hasn't fought in mixed martial arts or boxing since losing a boxing bout to unbeaten Floyd Mayweather by a 10th-round technical knockout in their much-hyped bout in Las Vegas in August.

Showtime sports released final figures Friday showing the cross-combat superfight drew the second-most North American pay-per-view buys in history with 4.3m. Only one other fight - Mayweather's 2015 clash with Pacquiao - has ever drawn more, racking up 4.6m pay-per-view buys. Showtime said in a statement that global revenues, including ticket sales, sponsorship and international distribution, for Mayweather-McGregor had exceeded $600m.
