The husband had fought before. In 2014, with McGregor defeating the American in the first round.
Last month, McGregor said on Twitter that he was coming out of retirement to fight 41-year-old boxer Manny Pacquiao.
The former UFC World League champion said it is “Mane Pacquiao’s upcoming boxing in the Middle East.”
McGregor has played one boxing match before, losing in Round 10 to boxing legend Floyd Mayweather Jr. in 2017.
After his initial tweet about facing Pacquiao, McGregor said in a second tweet: “It would be a real honor to face two of the greatest boxers of modern times.”
