Did he just accept an offer to fight Manny Pacquiao?

UFC superstar Conor McGregor intrigued Filipino fight fans by posting a Tagalog remark on social media, hinting a possible bout with Pacquiao.

"Tinatanggap ko (I accept)," was McGregor's post, indirectly addressing Pacquiao.

It's no secret that Pacquiao is open to face McGregor in a dream fight, following in Floyd Mayweather Jr.'s footsteps in 2017.

Despite losing to Mayweather, McGregor raked in $130 million in what was termed as the "Money fight."

The Irish fighter is apparently trying to do the same with Pacquiao, who signed a deal with Paradigm Sports which manages McGregor.

Last July, McGregor responded to Pacquiao's birthday greeting by tweeting: "Thank you Emmanuel, 170."

This apparently meant McGregor want to take on Pacquiao in a boxing match at 170 pounds.

Pacquiao, the reigning WBA "super" welterweight champion, fights at the 147 pound limit.
