Apparently this is confirmed now for June in Vegas.
I can't see it happening in June. Floyd wants to give Connor 10 million for the fight. This fight ain't happening if both fighters are pricing themselves out of it. Floyds putting pressure on Mcgregor on social media with the date because it will make Connor look bad if he doesn't agree to it. I think originally Mcgregor said september. It's a clever move from Floyd but that date is a smoke screen

If I was Mcgregor i'd play this out until next year. Floyd made a career out waiting for fighters to get past their prime and old. Floyd needs Mcgregor not the other way around.

Dana White has given this fight the go a head. Assuming Floyd gives Conors a fair price this is actually going to happen...... Bloody hell

Lip service from White. Will believe it when I see it.

No way in hell all three egos will come out happy. Think it is more a matter of him deciding to kill it at the negotiating table, rather than through a public forum. Can already hear the company tag line, "We OK'd the fight, but Conor didn't come to the table with reasonable demands."

Floyd will want the lion's share. UFC will want the lion's share of the leftovers. McGregor will want to give them "step aside money". Fight goes nowhere.

McGregor is a right tit. Just saw him on Michael Conlan's debut and he was getting his face out there every chance he got. Think he just likes the limelight more than anything.

Suppose he's selling the fight.....

He's in a no lose position really, not expected to trouble Floyd but he has a ready made excuse to fall back on with it not being his sport. He'll make more money than he'd have ever dreamed possible. And though Floyd is one of the finest fighters of his era, he's not a scary guy who tends to do major damage to his opposition and he's not getting any younger.

Though I do think that Mayweather will be spiteful in this one, especially since McGregor is likely to p*ss him off by getting the better of the pre-fight hype.

I see a lot of people getting on McGregor's case over this potential fight and I can't for the life of me understand why.

Should the fight be competitive? No. Will the protagonists make a shed load of money? Yes. Will every single f**ker on this site pay the 17.95 for it? Yes (or will watch it via illegal means). For crying out loud, I'm sure that everyone on here watched the fight against Carlos bloody Baldomir back in the day.

Whatever you think of the credentials of this fight there is absolutely no doubting that it sells, if even as a freak show.  Anybody who wants to run it down needs to take a step back and have a look at the business that is staring them in the face.

Regarding McGregor's attendance at the Conlan fight, that was all show. I'm glad that Conlan had invited McGregor to take part in the whole event because if he hadn't of then McGregor somewhat stealing the limelight on Conlan's debut would have been inexcusable. I do that in the context of the situation McGregor should have reigned it in a little, took the back seat a little more and allowed Conlan to have his little bit of time in the sun.

Because he's not actually very good at boxing.

I'm not arsed how much 'business sense' it makes - it's ridiculous.

On the flip side, the publicity generated for Conlan because he had one of the worlds biggest superstars by his side would have been huge in raising his profile. Yeah connor used the situ for his own benefit but so did Conlan. Win/win.

What's ridiculous? The thought of people streaming or the comment as a whole?

Bob Arum claiming the UFC want 50% of Mcgregors purse to fight Mayweather. Looks like the UFC are the only hurdle left for this fight to happen.

The bit that I pulled out before commenting. It's insulting to many people on this forum to suggest they are arsed about watching a pisstake boxing exhibition. I'd rather watch Rocky v Thunderlips II.
