How much should viewers expect to pay to watch Mayweather vs. McGregor?

"I talked to him this morning, he wants to fight Floyd Mayweather on August 26, and he wants to defend his title this year too", White said on Wednesday.

The Straight Blast Gym head-coach tweeted "10 weeks #McGregorVsMayweather" alongside an image of himself and The Notorious One.

"So it's part of the fun of this fight, is Conor McGregor, in a 12-round fight, going to be able to touch Floyd Mayweather?".

The contest will take place at the MGM Grand Garden Arena, with the Nevada State Athletic Commission having approved the date for a Mayweather Promotions fight, Nevada State Athletic Commission executive director Bob Bennett confirmed.

And let's be honest with ourselves, a trilogy fight between Diaz and McGregor would just be a hell of a lot more entertaining than what we'll see in late August in the boxing ring.

McGregor, the UFC's reigning lightweight champion and former featherweight champion, is known as much for his bravado as for his explosive knockout power inside an MMA octagon.

And red, and yellow, and green - it was a big stretch goal for them but they nailed it. That's another studio I don't tell them what to do.

Mayweather's pay-per-view record eclipsed the previous best for his title fight against Oscar de la Hoya in 2007, which pulled in 2.48m. Mayweather was also involved in the match that gave the fighters the biggest payday in history.

"Anything can happen so that's why I like to watch from the outside, it's unknown, you don't know what's going to happen", the American said.

But, Mayweather is looking to set a new record of 50-0, and further, if he were to lose, it would be one of the greatest upsets in combat sports history.

Correia praised McGregor for agreeing to the bout.

There is no doubt that Conor McGregor vs. Floyd Mayweather will be seen as a showdown between boxing and MMA. "It will be a ppv event in the U.S.", said Espinoza. McGregor had been eager to fight and pushed the bout for most of 2017, constantly taunting Mayweather and challenging him to finish the deal.

You at least have to love the smack talk already being blasted from one corner of the ring. McGregor has a huge following and he is the highest-paid athlete in the UFC because his fights sell bigger than anyone else's.
