Conor McGregor's super-fight with Floyd Mayweather looks like it's going to happen sooner, rather than later.

After Khabib Nurmagomedov's late withdrawal from UFC 209, the lightweight division remains as confused as ever, despite the McGregor holding the belt. He is in no hurry to defend the title and seems to have his eyes set on a fight with the unbeaten Mayweather. 

The 40-year-old boxer, who has not fought since September 2015 has a 49-0 record. He is now primarily working as a boxing promoter. 

On Saturday night, the Olympic bronze medallist was in England at an event in Birmingham, when he was joined on stage by Dublin impressionist Al Foran. 

McGregor, Mike Tyson, Al Pacino and even Donald Trump joined a shocked Mayweather on stage, imploring him to take the fight with the The Notorious. 

John Kavanagh, coach of Conor McGregor, and Shane Lowry were among those on Twitter who were impressed by Foran's work on Saturday night.
