Joe Rogan believes Conor McGregor vs Manny Pacquiao could happen

UFC commentator Joe Rogan believes a boxing mega-fight between Conor McGregor and Manny Pacquiao is now a possibility.

The potential bout would likely be one of the most lucrative of all time, pitting one of the best pound for pound fighters in the world against one of the most decorated boxers of all time. It’s an event that would be reminiscent of Conor McGregor’s 2017 clash with Floyd Mayweather, which unsurprisingly turned out to be the second most bought fight in PPV history.

Putting aside the obvious revenue a McGregor Pacquiao boxing match would generate, there are many hurdles in matching up such huge superstars. That’s irrespective of the fact the two compete in entirely different sports.

Luckily though, one of those huge hurdles has now been removed. Pacquiao has signed with Paradigm Sports Management.

What’s the significance of this you ask? Well, this is the same management company who represent McGregor.

In short, if two fighters are managed by the same company then it makes it a lot easier to put a fight together between the two. Even if it is between stars from different sports.

Rogan: “probably what the UFC wants”

The news of Pacquiao’s signing was revealed to Rogan during an episode of his MMA Show Podcast. “Manny Pacquiao inks deal with Paradigm Sports Management, who represent Conor McGregor.”

The host of the JRE Experience was left with seemingly little doubt about what’s next for McGregor and Pacquiao: “Oh, Jesus. That’s probably what they’re gonna do. Manny Pacquiao Conor McGregor. That’s probably what the UFC wants to try and do.”

Should the bout come to fruition there will be inevitable backlash from MMA and boxing purists who won’t believe it’ll be competitive. There was similar sentiment for McGregor’s bout with Mayweather, although the Irishman far exceeded most pundits’ expectations after legitimately taking rounds off ‘Money’.

McGregor wants Pacquiao

During the build up to McGregor’s fight with Donald ‘Cowboy’ Cerrone, the Notorious was quizzed about a boxing match with Pacquiao.

When asked about Pacquiao and a poster that surfaced teasing a bout between the two at the new Las Vegas Stadium, McGregor replied: “I would be honored to be a part of that event.” He went to say: “What a fight that would be against Manny.”

Who knows whether we’ll get this mega-fight but after Pacquiao signing with the same management company as McGregor, it’s certainly more likely than it was.

When will Corpse Husband stream on Twitch? YouTuber looks to new platform

Corpse Husband has found a lot of success on YouTube, but will he ever stream on Twitch? If his recent comments are anything to go by, it sounds like he’s already amassed a strong following on there and is thinking about doing a surprise stream.

Corpse Husband is one of the most successful streamers on YouTube. It happened after his popularity skyrocketed in 2020. However, most fans don’t realize he also has a Twitch channel

It has no content, but he’s still managed to amass more than half a million followers on there. He probably only made it to lock in his name in case he ever switched platforms. However, it raises the question: will he ever stream on it? 

He has no reason to switch permanently, at least for the time being. But that could change if he was offered a lucrative contract. Still, he has pondered the idea of doing a surprise stream.

Corpse mentioned the idea to his fans when he was playing Among Us live on stream. Initially, it sounded like he was all for it. However, he quickly talked himself out of it, or rather, played it down.

“Someday, I will stream on Twitch,” he said. “I checked it recently, and I had like 600,000 followers for some reason. I might go there to… I wanna have like a chilled… no, I could probably do that now.”

It’s impossible to know whether it was anything more than a passing thought. If it ever did come to fruition, though, it would undoubtedly be a smash hit and potentially break records.

In the meantime, it’s become a talking point among fans. Some are all for it, regardless of whether it’s temporary or permanent. Others are less enthusiastic, and feel like YouTube is his rightful home.

Either way, we’ll have to wait and see what happens. A one-off Twitch stream could be an exciting event. It might even be a good way to test the water. But at the same time, if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it.
