It really doesn’t make much sense to put McGregor in the new “Creed” film. He’s a UFC guy. Yes, he boxed against Floyd Mayweather, but that was a one time event. (SLIDESHOW: These Are The Sexiest Paige VanZant Photos On The Internet)
That man is an MMA star. He’s built for the octagon. The highly successful film saga is about boxing. It’s not about MMA.

Besides, McGregor is pretty busy getting rich off of his whiskey right now. I’m not sure he has the time or interest in doing a boxing film.
If you’re getting rich off selling booze, you might not feel the need to jump into Hollywood.
Also, I wouldn’t be doing my job if I didn’t remind everybody how incredible the walkout scene from the first “Creed” film was.
An absolutely awesome moment.
There is no known release date right now for the latest “Creed” film.
