McGregor confirmed the news on his website late Wednesday night.
“It is an honor to sign this record-breaking deal alongside my partners Zuffa LLC, The Ultimate Fighting Championship and Paradigm Sports Management,” McGregor said. “The first, and most important part of this historic contract has now officially been signed off on. Congratulations to all parties involved.”
UFC president Dana White has finally come to an agreement with his biggest star to promote a boxing match that figures to be the most lucrative bout in combat sports history.
Now comes the hard part.
White announced Wednesday night during an appearance on TNT’s “Inside the NBA” he had come to terms with Conor McGregor on a deal for the UFC lightweight champion to box Floyd Mayweather Jr.
I hope that people appreciate just how big a fight this is going to be. Conor Mcgregor the largest draw MMA fighter in history in a boxing ring against arguably the best boxer in history Floyd Mayweather. The fighters could charge $200 for the pay per view, and everyone would still buy it. The fight will be hyped up so much and in a type with the internet. It will be so big that every undercard fight on this card will also get immensely famous.
Now comes the hard part is what they are saying. I’ve thought about this the whole time; I don’t know why Mayweather takes this fight. The man would be going for his 50-0 record with a win, but he also has everything to lose. News from his camp is saying that Floyd is taking this fight really serious which means that if he is in top form, this fight might be embarrassing for Mcgregor. But we also have the small chance what everyone thinks that Conor might bring the boom once and that’s all it will take.
With no sure guarantee that this fight will happen, it’s just a waiting game from Mayweather’s camp and Al Haymon his rep. I know that I’m getting tired of hearing about it so let’s go.
