Conor McGregor and Floyd Mayweather have been all over the web for quite some time, but the confirmation on their fight took quite a bit before coming into fruition. Now, some serious light may be shedding across what could be one of the greatest fights of the century.
Both respected champions in their own field, the two sports personalities have quite the reputation to back them up to make the aforesaid clash one for the ages. However, certain repercussions-particularly contracts-have gone one to make the dream match slightly more complicated, not just for fans but also for McGregor and Mayweather.
According to BBC, McGregor flew to Las Vegas for some business that he said he needed to take care of, and via social media, the Irish mixed martial artist posted a photo of him sitting in a chair ready for Mayweather. The two have exchanged posts with Mayweather saying that there were no negotiations pertaining to him and any other fighters, adding that if McGregor wants a piece of him, he should settle his business with the UFC first and then the official talks could begin.
As per The Sun, McGregor went to the United States to shoot a video for an anti-bullying campaign, as well as to speak to the Nevada Sports Commission who looked at his actions of throwing a water bottle at former fighter Nate Diaz. While he is also of Irish descent, he was still granted a boxing license by the California State Athletic Commission last December, which further allows McGregor to do so in the US.
Sadly, UFC president Dana White stated that the fight is not even remotely close to coming forth, and that McGregor is still under contract. The dual-division champion still has four fights left, after which White can permit him to do what he wants to do from there-including the bout against Mayweather.
So far, no confirmed details from both parties have emerged. Stay posted for more updates on the dream match of Conor McGregor versus Floyd Mayweather.
