It's on! Mayweather vs. McGregor this summer in Las Vegas

Sylvester Stallone will be betting on Conor McGregor to knock out Floyd Mayweather, Jr. in August's (17) big fight. "When it's all said and done, only God can judge me".

In order to make sure that doesn't happen, UFC president Dana White confirmed late Wednesday on a media conference call that language was added to the contract, including the kind of financial penalties that are created to deter such practices. For the Mayweather v McGregor fight to hit the $1bn mark it would likely need to double its pay-per-view sales.

"If McGregor were to go out and get some boxing matches, I don't see ..."

Who do you like in the mega bout? "I think people would love to see it".

As explained by White on ESPN's Sports Center on Wednesday night, Mayweather has agreed to head up half a stone from the Berto clash to battle McGregor at what is effectively the super-welterweight limit.

It's a contest between boxing's pay-per-view king and the highest-grossing UFC star in history.

In an interview with The Telegraph, Mr Espinoza said: "There was a significant impediment that was removed a couple of weeks ago and that was the UFC going on record saying they didn't want Conor to participate. It'll be a one-sided fight - put it that way", says Butterbean. "Mayweather's cute little moves will make all the difference and it will be an easy fight for him".

"The difference in combat sport is that one punch can change everything and what you need to do is to land that one punch".

Mayweather, on the other hand, who is looking to beating the 49-0 pro boxing record of Rocky Marciano and becoming the greatest boxer ever, could pocket far more. GGG is going to fight Canelo. He's a great guy. White wasn't too happy about that earlier, and some are even wondering if the August date was meant to take the wind out of Oscar's own massive boxing bout in September featuring Canelo vs. Golovkin.

"There is a different feel from the Pacquiao fight, Ellerbe said". Each fighter could earn payouts of more than $100 million, according to Yahoo Sports.
