Think Mayweather-McGregor is a freak show? How about these?

With Floyd Mayweather set to fight Conor McGregor in a boxing bout in August, the UFC stars gathered here are all excited about watching one of their own take on the legendary American pugilist.

"It's official", Mayweather said on his Instagram account next to a video poster of both fighters.

Mayweather retired after he defeated Andre Berto two years ago, and he said he would only return to boxing for a fight that would make him at least $100 million.

The two fighters are expected to do a press tour shortly before going into final training for the fight. Yet here's McGregor, taking on the biggest star in combat sports in his first boxing match ever.

White told ESPN on Wednesday that the fight would be held at T-Mobile Arena. Mayweather is largely considered the greatest boxer in history due to his unbeaten record.


Who will win? Totally depends on who you ask. That means that a winning $100 bet on Mayweather would get you $12.50 while a winning $100 bet on McGregor would get you $500, a $487.50 difference.

Stephen Espinoza, executive vice president and general manager at Showtime Sports, believes that McGregor and Mayweather are attracting a different kind of audience that the fight with Pacquiao wasn't able to reach.

Both camps declined to disclose financial details during a call with reporters but said all sides were satisfied. "He will go after Mayweather and try to knock him out".

"The reason McGregor is as big as he is, is because he will fight anybody, anywhere, anytime". It comes less than a month before Gennady Golovkin and Canelo Alvarez meet in a highly anticipated fight that could rival it for pay-per-view buys. "Conor wants to fight Mayweather, why not have me against David Haye on the same card?"

"They could've not f*cked that thing up worse with how late they got these tickets out", White said. Or have you lost your mind and decided that a novice boxer is going to land a SHOCKING LEFT HAND on the best boxer of the modern age?
