Dana White Expects Conor McGregor to Defend UFC Title Before Year's End

Numbers like $100 million for each fighter have been mentioned but the actual payout will depend on PPV numbers.

"I think the biggest factor was that Conor wanted the fight so badly", said Iole. He walks the walk and talks the talk.

Having witnessed McGregor's power first hand, Lobov is in no doubt that Mayweather's proud undefeated record is about to come to an abrupt end at the MGM Garden on August 26.

"Speaking of Savannah, she doesn't know this so I'll break this, she will make her pro debut on that card", Ellerbe told Sky Sports.

The T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas will host the fight on August 26th and barring any unforeseen circumstances this one will be one for the record books. "So we are looking forward to a great fight that fans will love".

Mayweather will return to the ring after two years away following his retirement in 2015 after he defeated Andre Berto in a lopsided decision in his final fight. I believe that they will roughhouse Mayweather and not let him fight his style.

I don't begrudge either of them their money (and there's going to be truck loads of it), I am of the belief that you get whatever you can get while you can get it when you are an athlete, especially in the world of a fighter. The former champ went on saying that The Notorious does not have what it takes to make Mayweather Jr. kiss the canvass, according to TMZ.

McRae: Incredibly, no. Mayweather-Pacquiao was years too late and completely devoid of drama.

Known for his devastating striking and highlight-reel knockouts, McGregor is also quick and irrational on his feet, but few would back him to beat one of the most complete boxers of all time. It will take place the week after WWE's SummerSlam, and I'm sure WWE is extremely grateful for that little bit of kindness.

The two fighters are expected to do a press tour that should provide fireworks shortly before going into final training for the fight. McGregor has been all about his money since rising to fame in the UFC, and Mayweather doesn't hold the moniker "Money" for no reason.

After being confirmed by both parties involved in the match on Wednesday, the announcement flooded social media with buzz about the long-anticipated bout that has stemmed from trash-talking over the past several years.

This fight does have my interest, though, just for the sake of seeing an all-time great boxer square off against one of the biggest superstars in MMA history. "I've never seen anyone hit that hard", Lobov said.

When the announcement was made, the sports world had varying opinions about the fight.
