Looks as though McGregor vs. Mayweather is a done deal…
Much to the upset of his employers, UFC lightweight champion Conor McGregor is on the rampage. During his pay-per-view interview in Manchester, ‘The Notorious’ went ham on the UFC and Floyd Mayweather.
Restricted, as are other UFC fighters, by his contract, McGregor revealed some stunning predictions for 2017. Firstly, the Irishman declared he would box Mayweather, and didn’t think the UFC could stop him.
Conor McGregor vs. Dana White
Responding to his most popular employee, White was not happy. He warned McGregor not once, but twice about going against the UFC. Apparently, that message hasn’t got through to McGregor.
Recent reports indicated the Irishman was close to reaching some sort of agreement to box ‘Money.’ Both fighters dismissed White’s offer of $25 million each to fight in the octagon. Until now, things on the McGregor vs. Mayweather front have gone a little quiet.
Finalizing Contract Details
Reported by The Irish Sun, McGregor’s cancellation of his appearance in Dublin this Friday is more than it appears. Heading to Las Vegas, Nevada, ‘The Notorious’ will be filming an anti-bullying advert, but also finalizing the contract details with Mayweather.
Yes, you heard it right, in the face of the UFC president’s multiple warnings, McGregor is going for it. Details below:
We can reveal the MMA sensation (Conor McGregor) pulled out of a scheduled meet-and-greet event in Dublin this week to go to the States to make an anti-bullying video for schoolchildren. McGregor will shoot the video as part of a deal struck with the Nevada Sport Commission after he was deemed to have thrown a bottle of water at Nate Diaz.
He will also use the opportunity to finalise details with his representatives in Las Vegas as the Mayweather fight inches closer. A source close to the Straight Blast Gym star told the Irish Sun: “Conor McGregor and Floyd Mayweather have agreed a deal to fight and have both settled on their respective fees.
“Although the contract hasn’t been signed yet because of a third party hold-up but all the details have all been agreed on. The fight could even be announced within two weeks.”
