McGregor will fight Mayweather this August

Conor McGregor has fired early shots at Floyd Mayweather ahead of their super-fight by taking a cheeky swipe at him on Twitter. McGregor still throws hands in the UFC and the 40-year-old Mayweather officially retired in 2015, but it’s expected both fighters could pick up licenses in no time at all.McGregor has become one of the most recognisable mixed martial artists in the world since he won the UFC featherweight title in December 2015.However, in what appeared to be a swipe at his opponent’s age, he instead posted a photo of Mayweather’s father, Floyd Mayweather Sr. And with the fight distributed via Showtime pay-per-view with Mayweather Promotions as the lead promoter, that answer is “probably around £78.4m each”.”The McGregor side is done, I’m starting to work on the Mayweather side now”, UFC president Dana White said during a recent TV interview. He was just 154.4 pounds for his last fight against Eddie Alvarez, but he weighed 168 pounds in his previous fight against Nate Diaz.”We’ve been in negotiations for a while”, White told SportsCenter.Given McGregor’s non-existent boxing experience and Mayweather’s reputation as one of the finest fighters in history, many observers are already predicting a mismatch.However, with McGregor’s UFC plans on hold for the time being, all anyone can talk about is what’s going to happen between now and 26th August. The UFC stamp will be limited to the presence of McGregor, according to White. I don’t think it damages the brand or Conor McGregor at all [if he loses]. I’m not saying Floyd Mayweather’s going to win. “And win, lose or draw, it’ll be one of the reasons that people continue to love Conor McGregor“. “Conor also believes with all his heart he will knock Mayweather out”.
