Is Conor McGregor going to fight Floyd Mayweather? Who the hell knows. But both of them sure know how to promote the shit out of a fight. I really hop it happens because these videos have me ready to shell out 100 bucks just to see the spectacle.
You show me some guys training and I’m instantly hooked. That’s why those HBO 24/7 specials are awesome. You watch one episode of that and next thing you know, you’re buying the fight. You give me McGregor training in his cul-de-sac in Ireland and I’m all in on this super fight that’s probably going to end up being terrible.
Here’s some new details on the fight… Dana White sounds ready to make it happen
Dana was really the only thing standing in the way of the fight actually taking place.
From CBS Sports:
White, who said Wednesday during an appearance on NBC Sports radio that he’s currently working on a deal with McGregor, explained the reasoning for his sudden change of direction.
“The money that’s involved in this thing, does it make a bunch of sense for my business? No. But Conor is a guy who has stepped up in times of need here in big fights when an opponent fell out,” White said. “So I want to do this for Conor and help him make this kind of money.”
Asked for a timeline on when the Mayweather-McGregor fight might happen, White said before the end of 2017 “I think you will [see it].”
“Conor McGregor is having a baby right now. After his girlfriend delivers her baby, we will start working on this deal,” White said. “I think we are actually there [in terms of the financial details]. I think we are in a good place. I just need to get together with him and finalize some stuff and then it’s on to Mayweather.”
