Mayweather vs McGregor Fight Is On

Conor-McGregor-Floyd-Mayweather

After about 7 months of back and forth trash talk between Floyd Mayweather and Conor McGregor, we finally got the official word yesterday evening that this fight is a done deal. After Joe Biggs set the internet a blaze with this tweet a few days ago.

 

Both the Mayweather camp and the McGregor camp confirmed this news yesterday evening on social media themselves.

Here is UFC President Dana White on SportsCenter with the details of how this fight came to fruition.

And on FS1’s UFC Tonight show.

So there it is. We have a date. August 26th. We have a location. Las Vegas. We have a venue. T-Mobile Arena. We have ourselves a weight. 154 pounds. We have ourselves the glove size. 10 ounces. And it’s going to be a PPV event on ShowTime. The people have spoken. The fans wanted it. And the promoters delivered it. The money made sense so the fight makes sense. And when it all boils down that is the real reason why this fight is actually taking place. Now we can move past all the speculation of if this fight will ever happen to, and it’s already begun, speculating if Conor McGregor will even hit, not win, but just hit Floyd Mayweather. No one is giving McGregor a shot of even hitting Mayweather let alone win this fight. I think the only person in the world that thinks Conor McGregor will win this fight is McGregor himself. One thing is for sure. This fight no doubt will set records for ticket sales and viewership since pretty much everyone and their momma wants to see this fight. The hype, the trash talk, the theatrics leading up to this fight might actually be better than the fight itself. Speaking of promotion. I leave you with the first official media conference call with Dana White, Leonard Ellerbe, and Scott Espinosa concerning this fight.
