UFC Fighters, Media Sound Off On Conor McGregor

20 June 2017, 10:04 | Andy Ferguson

It will take place on August 26 T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas.

The 73-day promotion should feature some of the finest trash-talking exchanges combat sports has seen.

As per British publication Sun, McGregor, who now possess the UFC lightweight championship, could be paid $100 million for just showing up to the fight. How McGregor can possibly hope to be competitive is the biggest shadow looming over the bout and its ability to sell huge numbers on pay per view.

McGregor is the biggest draw of the UFC (Ultimate Fighting Championship) and the current lightweight champion - but his sport allows kicking and grappling.

"That will not happen", White said. "That will not happen". "That is absolutely in the contract, No. 1".

"A lot of things make this fight intriguing but the reality is this: Anybody who has ever seen Floyd Mayweather, he's this big [gesturing at the American's small size]".

Hours after Conor McGregor-Floyd Mayweather was announced, "UFC Tonight" tossed the script out the window and devoted much of the program to the upcoming boxing match.

Neither Mayweather nor McGregor have competed this year.

The Irishman is arguably the biggest selling pay per view star in combat sports now, but will be fighting in his first boxing bout against one of the greatest boxer's of all time. McGregor had been eager to fight and pushed the bout for most of 2017, constantly taunting Mayweather and challenging him to finish the deal.

"I wouldn't say McGregor has earned his shot at Floyd. He will go after Floyd Mayweather and he will try to knock him out". A top UFC fighter has never had a big boxing match before, and certainly not against an opponent like Mayweather.

The 40-year-old Mayweather will be aiming to reach the 50-0 milestone while McGregor is a heavy underdog in the 12-round boxing match.

"It's a very good opportunity to show an MMA fighter is a well-rounded fighter, they can win in MMA fights, and also in boxing", Li said through a translator.
