Conor McGregor facing hefty lawsuits if he tries MMA moves vs

19 June 2017, 02:04 | Pamela Mathis

"I got all these guys crying about 'Oh Conor this and Conor that, '" White told media members on yesterday's media conference call.

Yahoo! Sports reports that full terms were not available for their report, but that the fight will happen in Las Vegas at the MGM Grand or T-Mobile Arena.

Mayweather, 40, is undefeated in 49 boxing matches, winning 26 by knock-out.

The undercard of Mayweather-McGregor will be a purely boxing event, with no UFC involvement. "I am also anxious for this event to be over so the UFC lightweight champion can face the top contenders in MMA's most talented division".

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.

Conor McGregor has a way of manifesting dreams into reality. "So I think he has to really keep his end strong for this fight".

Champions Trophy 2017: Pakistan crush India with devastating bowling display
Zaman (114), playing his first ODI against India and fourth overall, went after the bowlers trying to play the inside-out shots. Hardik Pandya cheered India fans in a capacity crowd as he hit three sixes off succesive balls to bring up a dashing fifty.

"People will think I'm insane and people will go mad about this but, mark my words, Conor McGregor is going to knock Floyd Mayweather out cold", he told Sky Sports. "Win, lose or draw, I finally and forever become a true McGregor fan because he continues to challenge himself and the norms of society".

Think Mayweather-McGregor is a freak show? However, experience is clearly on his side in this fight as his opponent has never had a professional boxing match.

Despite the mismatch, one of the biggest reasons this fight has felt inevitable is because of the money. The fans wanted to see this fight, it's the most talked about fight on the planet right now.

Go ahead and block off August 26-27 on your calendar now.

Most observers are less impressed and do not expect the fight to be competitive: Mayweather was listed as a -1100 favorite at the Westgate Las Vegas SuperBook, meaning bettors would have to risk $1,100 on Mayweather to win just $100. "Whenever he hits people, they fall", said White.

Like Ellerbe, we'll all have to wait to see if this fight is going to be as exciting as its buildup, but one thing is certain: whatever takes place inside the ring will be historic.
