Michael Phelps Challenges Conor McGregor To Swimming Race
Given that Conor McGregor has pretty much broken free of the shackles that usually constrain MMA fighters, appearing in video games, having a film made about him, modelling and jumping in the boxing ring, the world is his oyster.
At this point, given his popularity and previous successes, companies and promotions would most likely throw money at him to get him to do stuff.
With that in mind, 23 time Olympic gold medalist Michael Phelps has suggested the two have a swimming race, just for the sake of it.
He was watching the fight on August 26, and Tweeted after, congratulating both of the fighters.
"50-0.....wow ," the first tweet read, while the other said: "Hats off to @TheNotoriousMMA ...... amazing competitor and unreal athlete...congrats to @FloydMayweather 50-0 congrats! #legend."
He brought it up again however, when he posted a Photoshopped image of him and Conor. The Notorious can be seen in a swimming cap underneath a graphic saying "PHELPS VS MCGREGOR."
"All of this talk... Should we race as well??" he captioned the tweet.

Despite the fact Phelps is the most decorated Olympian of all time, with 28 medals to his name, McGregor certainly wouldn't let something like that stand in his way. He certainly didn't let Floyd's undefeated record do that.
Phelps is just the greatest. He even raced a shark. I mean, well, he didn't, it was a CGI shark, but still.
Right up until it was go time, it was made out that the swimmer would be actually competing against a genuine shark.
