Conor McGregor and Richard Branson SQUARE UP during live event in Dublin

The pair got down to business and shared the extraordinary moment during the Pendulum Summit in Dublin's Convention Centre.

Not to be outdone, Rich ripped off his top too. and we gotta say, dude looks pretty frickin' jacked for a 67-year-old gazillionaire.

Thankfully, for Branson, this time it was all just a happy stunt.

Ferguson has earned the interim lightweight belt while Nurmagomedov has fought well enough to deserve a title shot of his own, but they can not do much of anything without McGregor.

The possibility of a Moscow show was also earlier fueled by current lightweight champion Conor McGregor, who reportedly asked UFC chief White to organize a bout with the undefeated Nurmagomedov in Russian Federation last summer.

As the number two-ranked fighter in the lightweight division, Nurmagomedov appears to have only two fight options ahead of him: interim champion Tony Ferguson, and McGregor, who hasn't defended his belt since winning at UFC 205, where he beat Eddie Alvarez by way of technical knockout.

In the clip, you see Branson take off his shirt as he readies to go head-to-head with the UFC legend.

That is not OK with White, so he is putting a deadline on McGregor and using the champ's belt to do it. "Or if Conor doesn't want to fight and wants to sit out until next fall, then we would have to make Khabib vs". "And he's going to make a big fight in the future, but I think Khabib and Tony is the big fight and f***, they might even do that one in Russian Federation. Tony for the title, not the interim title".
