Conor McGregor sounds interested in throwing down in the bare-knuckle boxing ring.
Last month, McGregor attended a BKFC event, and it appeared to be having the time of his life.
After the event, McGregor got called into the ring and was challenged to a fight by BKFC’s Mike Perry.

While speaking with Ariel Helwani last week, McGregor said he would entertain a bare-knuckle fight in his career.
“I would do it, yes, I would! In a heartbeat, I’ll do it. Yes I would do it for sure. It’s hard to get a boring fight…It’s actually almost impossible for a boring fight to happen in it.”
McGregor believes there’s no chance of a boring fight in bare-knuckle boxing.
“No other discipline or sport could say that and say that…a zero percent chance of a boring fight, we can all have a snoozer…Boxing can be a snoozefest, MMA can have a snoozefest as well…even a jab splits skin, so from the split skin causes panic in the ring and then the crowd rises…So it’s interesting, I’d be up for it for sure, why not?”
Conor has already been called out by BKFC champion Luis Palomino.
“@thenotoriousmma you want to come into my house? I’ll be the one to welcome you in, any day, any time, any weight class. Yours truly the people’s Champ Champ only undefeated double Bareknuckle Boxing world champion.”
