Conor McGregor hinted Wednesday on Twitter about a boxing rematch with Floyd Mayweather.

The Irish-born UFC star quoted tweeted a video from the match analyzing the fight, and ended his caption with, “Great boxing fight! A rematch will be interesting no doubt.” (SLIDESHOW: These UFC Women Really Hate Wearing Clothes)

It wouldn’t surprise me one bit if there was a rematch. Mayweather is all about money, so is McGregor, and we all know UFC President Dana White is a great businessman. (SLIDESHOW: These Are The Greatest Ronda Rousey Photos On The Internet)

If there’s cash on the table, then you better believe a rematch will always be an option. Besides, the first boxing bout was incredibly entertaining. (SLIDESHOW: These Are The Sexiest Paige VanZant Photos On The Internet)

I would have no problem seeing if McGregor could even the score after losing the first time around.

However, before McGregor worries about boxing Mayweather again for another massive payday, he might want to focus on getting another win in the UFC.

He lost his last fight in the octagon to Khabib, and we all know how crazy that fight was at the end.

My guess is that McGregor has at least two UFC fights ahead of him before there will be any serious discussion about a rematch with the legendary boxer.

White wants him in the octagon and to return to being the face of the UFC. There’s no question at all about that.
