In a bizarre late night Twitter post, McGregor said "Something BIG is coming #BP".

Some of his 4 Million+ followers have speculated that #BP may mean 'Be Prepared', which may imply a further Mayweather announcement.

Another explanation for the mysterious hashtag could be clothing related.

The UFC Lightweight Champion posed in a blue parka in the accompanying photo, which Coach John Kavanagh replied to with a shocked emoji.

McGregor recently welcomed a baby boy into the world, and signed his half of a deal to fight 49-0 boxing legend Floyd Mayweather.

His family look set to be staying in Ireland for the summer with recent reports claiming that he is renting out a well known Irish villa Killiney Hill in Dalkey.

Floyd Mayweather has begun sparring for his proposed super fight with Conor McGregor.

The undefeated American posed with young, up-and-coming prospect Devin Haney after taking the 18-year-old six rounds.

An official announcement is forthcoming, yet a September date has been pencilled in and Mayweather already appears to be pushing towards fighting condition.

Haney, who is 15-0 as a professional already and 22 years Mayweather's junior, is preparing for his lightweight contest with Erick Daniel Martinez on June 24.

McGregor has yet to promote himself back in training since his girlfriend Dee Devlin giving birth to his son Conor Jr.

The announcement of boxing's biggest fight, Gennady Golovkin vs Saul Canelo Alvarez, set for September 16, appears to have complicated matters. A later date could be sort to avoid saturating the pay-per-view market.

UFC president Dana White hyped up the Notorious' chance of pulling off the upset before quickly shying away from picking his man to do so.

"Conor McGregor hits like a truck," White said. "When he hits you, you know it. So, in no way, shape, or form am I saying Conor McGregor wins this fight. I don't know."
