Conor McGregor, the former Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) champion, recently made headlines when he threatened Manny Pacquiao, the former boxing champion, on Twitter.

McGregor, who is represented by Paradigm Entertainment, which won a lawsuit against Pacquiao for breaching a contract, demanded that the boxer pay over $8 million in damages. He then took to Twitter to publicly humiliate the boxer, and even threatened to fight him in a bare-knuckle brawl.

The lawsuit in question was filed after Pacquiao signed a contract with Paradigm in 2020 but failed to fight under their promotion.

The boxer was expected to fight McGregor or Mikey Garcia, but both fights fell through, leading to the breach of contract. The lawsuit was filed in the state of California, where it was won by Paradigm, forcing Pacquiao to pay the damages.

Following the verdict, McGregor took to Twitter to taunt Pacquiao, demanding payment of the damages and threatening to blow his head off with a backhand in a bare-knuckle brawl.

Although the tweets have since been deleted, screenshots have been circulating on social media, causing a stir among fans of both fighters.

McGregor's tweet also brought attention to the recent popularity of bare-knuckle fighting, which has been gaining traction in recent years as a legal form of fighting.

McGregor himself participated in a historic night for the sport recently, but it is unlikely that Pacquiao will agree to fight him in this setting.

However, the tweet has raised questions about McGregor's intentions regarding his involvement in the sport. Some speculate that McGregor may be considering promoting bare-knuckle fighting, while others believe that he may be seeking to join the sport himself.

Despite the attention that the tweet has garnered, UFC President Dana White has stated that he has no issue with McGregor's involvement in the sport and even supports him. However, White may not be happy about McGregor promoting a different sport that is not the UFC.

In conclusion, Conor McGregor's recent tweet threatening Manny Pacquiao has caused a stir among fans of both fighters and raised questions about McGregor's intentions regarding his involvement in the sport of bare-knuckle fighting.

McGregor's threat of a bare-knuckle brawl with Pacquiao is unlikely to materialize, but it has brought attention to the sport and fueled speculation about McGregor's future in the sport.
