McGregor agrees to Mayweather bout with UFC

"It is an honor to sign this record-breaking deal", McGregor said in a statement to the mixed martial arts site The Mac Life. He has no scheduled UFC fights ahead. Now it's time to work on the other.

Mayweather has the speed, talent, defensive skills, and experience to beat McGregor, which is the main prediction of what will happen when and if these two fight. Both McGregor and Mayweather know it. UFC president Dana White knows it.

Henry's high praise for McGregor should not come as that much of a shock as earlier this year he predicted that "Mystic Mac" could put Mayweather away within the first four rounds.

"Congratulations to all parties involved. We now await Al Haymon and his boxer's signature in the coming days." he said. His last knockout came against Victor Ortiz in 2011.

The undefeated Las Vegan, 40, retired after a win over Andre Berto in September 2015. The proposed bout would be straight boxing match.

And in further retorts Mayweather responded: "Frank Warren (Walsh's promoter), why did you even sign these two pussies?"

"Conor is intimately familiar with our licensing procedures, having fought here multiple times for the UFC", Bennett said. If the fight happens, he expects to be paid more than McGregor. "You have to give the people what they want to see". He is 49-0 and has won world titles at five different weight classes. Then again, it's right in line with what Nate Diaz had to say about McGregor's chances as well.

"If me and Conor McGregor do happen to make the fight happen - which I think the fight will happen - I would love for this young kid [Gervonta] Davis to be on the undercard", McGregor told Showtime.

McGregor tweeted out a challenge to Mayweather Sunday afternoon. He said he made an offer to McGregor, which White denied. "Number 50 may be against Conor McGregor". "I don't know what obstacles or hurdles they have to jump over".

Would it help reach Mayweather's likely nine-figure request for a guaranteed purse to have Showtime help distribute the pay-per-view, too? He kicks a** in the octagon and I kick a** in a boxing ring. Mayweather countered with an offer of $15 million, plus a portion of PPV revenue. But the UFC commissioner disagreed with the boxer saying he was the main draw for the bout.

"They want to fight".

Britain's Savannah Marshall, the only woman to have defeated double Olympic gold medallist Claressa Shields in a major amateur contest, has signed professional terms with U.S. great Floyd Mayweather, it was announced on Thursday.

Mayweather's estimated net worth is about $400 million, according to BankRate.com.
