Dana White Calls McGregor-Mayweather 'Biggest Fight in Combat Sports'

Mayweather agreed to do it for no less than $100 million whilst McGregor is also expected to rake in a huge amount whilst also bringing in the dough for the UFC.

UFC president Dana White has revealed a number of details about Conor McGregor's fight against Floyd Mayweather, which he has promised will be "the biggest fight ever".

After months of speculation and doubt, the anticipated boxing match between Mayweather (49-0 boxing) and McGregor (21-3 MMA, 9-1 UFC) was made official today.

McGregor, meanwhile, is the only fighter in UFC history to have held titles in two weight divisions simultaneously-he is the former featherweight champion. I think it actually elevates Conor McGregor.

An MMA fighter entering a boxing ring with the man who has been called one of the greatest of all time in the sport could be a recipe for disaster. The fact that this kid, who has so much to lose, is willing to step in, and is absolutely confident he'll win this fight.

As a result, if Mayweather pulls off the victory, he'll become the first boxer to have a flawless 50-0 record.

"There's no way Conor McGregor can stand in front of Mayweather and out-box him and beat him punch-for-punch - it just can't happen". "With Conor McGregor not being a boxer, this is more of a mainstream global event".

There is no doubt that the UFC star is the underdog and earlier this year he said he would shock the boxing world. Notably, the boxing legend last defeated Andre Berto in September 2015 to end his 16-year-old career with an unbeaten record.

The development between the companies should not be too surprising, considering the fight is happening in a boxing setting and on a boxing fight card. That's one of the million reasons people love Conor McGregor. Not saying Mayweather is going to win.

After nearly two years of trash talking and deliberations, Conor McGregor and Floyd Mayweather have finally announced a date for their bout.
