On 14 June , it was officially announced that McGregor would compete in his first professional boxing match against the undefeated Mayweather Jr.
The bout was contested at super welterweight pounds with 8 oz. In front of 14,, far short of a sell-out, Mayweather won via TKO in the 10th round, setting the record for the longest active professional career unbeaten run, at In the opening round, Mayweather, as in previous fights, started slowly to work out McGregor's tactics.

Drie seconden voor het einde van de tweede ronde stopte de scheidsrechter het gevecht in het voordeel van de Ier.
McGregor vocht vervolgens op 12 december alsnog tegen de dan ruim negen jaar ongeslagen Aldo voor de algehele UFC-wereldtitel vedergewicht.
Nadat de Braziliaan aan het begin van de eerste ronde instapte, sloeg McGregor hem met links knock-out. Als de Ier dat gevecht zou winnen, zou hij de eerste zijn in de geschiedenis van de UFC met titels in twee gewichtsklassen tegelijkertijd op zijn naam.
Dos Anjos zegde ruim een week voor het gevecht zou plaatsvinden echter af vanwege een gebroken voet. McGregor koos vervolgens uit een aantal uitdagers Nate Diaz uit als vervangende tegenstander.
Zij spraken af om het tegen elkaar op te nemen in het weltergewicht, twee gewichtsklassen hoger dan die waarin McGregor titelhouder was. Dit omdat Diaz, doorgaans actief als lichtgewicht, minder dan twee weken de tijd had om gewicht te verliezen.
De Ier domineerde de eerste ronde en het begin van ronde 2 van hun gevecht. Nadat Diaz hem vervolgens een klap op de kin gaf, raakte McGregor versuft en had zijn tegenstander de overhand.
