The much publicised bout, which also stirred considerable controversy, comes in as the second richest in the history of the sport after generating 4.3 million pay-per-view buys, according to a statement from Showtime sports. He fought the returning Mayweather at the junior middleweight limit of 154-pounds and they used 8-ounce gloves.
But Showtime, who broadcast the fight in the U.S., have now revealed that the August 26 showdown failed to beat Mayweather's showdown with Pacquiao in 2015.
When pressed to elaborate, he responded, "MMA next", essentially killing any chance of a McGregor-Pacquiao bout.
"I think a true fight is what I want to do next", revealed McGregor.
Showtime added that the Mayweather and McGregor fight had exceeded $600 million when global revenues, including ticket sales, sponsorship and worldwide distribution were considered.
