The magic number for Conor McGregor to fight Floyd Mayweather remains at nine figures.

Now that "The Notorious" has two UFC title belts to his name, there was zero chance that he would back off on his previously stated $100-million demand to meet Mayweather in a boxing ring. McGregor held court in a club on Tuesday night and he couldn't keep Mayweather's name out of his mouth.

"Tell Floyd and Showtime, I'm coming," said McGregor. "Tell them to run out to the Showtime offices. I want $100 million cash to fight him under boxing rules because he's afraid of a real fight."

The two megastars have gone back and forth for months over a hypothetical fight, though due to the restrictions of McGregor's UFC contract, it seemed unlikely that it would ever actually be booked. Now that the UFC is under new management and McGregor's leverage with the promotion is greater than ever, speculation is once again running rampant that the fight could be booked.

Even if all the dominoes fall into place, McGregor isn't convinced that Mayweather will show up.

"Floyd's not ready for this," said McGregor. "Much respect for Floyd, he's a solid businessman. What he has been able to do, he is a f---ing animal at what he's been able to do. But as far as real fighting, as far as true, pure, unarmed combat, Floyd don't want none of this."
